Hi folks,

I am new to this form, I have just purchased a Sonola Delicia at an auction, it seems to work perfectly is even in tune (may have one dead key). I have played guitar and piano, fiddle for years and would like to add an accordion to the list.

I am looking for information on the country of origin, year and make, so I can research the proper way to play this model, would also be nice to know approx value if anyone knows.

Cheers,
Duncan

Hi Duncan - Welcome, but I believe what you have is a melodeon, and you may be better served by visiting a melodeon forum than you will on here. Someone may be along who knows something outside our usual sphere tho'.. For info. the make is Delicia, the model is SONOLA.
Good luck.

As Soulsaver says, you have a "one row melodeon." melodeon.net has a very active and friendly forum where you'll find lots of info.
The Hohner HA1040 "Vienna accordion" is a long established equivalent to what you have.
Delicia is a long established Czech maker, though I've never seen a Delicia one row like that.
I'd guess it's in the key of C.
One-rows are played in a number of musical traditions, Cajun, Quebecois, Irish and English, to name just a few.
Good luck!
Tom

I was going to suggest melodeon.net Tom, but it doesn't appear to be accepting new registrations?

Hmmm.Nothing obvious there to say why not, but this from Theo the administrator a while back, so it might be the way to go

Today Ive been receiving membership registrations from spammers a few times per hour. These are just the ones who get through our defences! To put this in context we typically get one genuine new member joining every day or two.

As a temporary measure the registration page has been disabled. New members will need to use the Contact Us page on the bottom left of the home page to send an email to me and I will them register them.
