Take a look at my new toy, this beautiful Crucianelli 120-bass Italian Piano Accordion. As well the lovely traditional musette sound from the internal reeds in the usual way, the instrument now has a brand new MIDI system fitted, which through use of a Roland accordion expander enables hundreds of sounds to be synthesised in real time to add great variety to the music produced. One can also turn off the actual treble and/or bass reeds to have purely electronic sounds for melody, chords or bass, or naturally use as a traditional acoustic instrument with no electronics at all, so the possibilities are endless.
I’ve been playing with this setup for just over a week now, and thought it about time I make a demo video, along with a Christmas medley. Things didn’t quite go to plan however… enjoy!
P.S. Please check out my other accordion videos! Here’s one taken the day after this particular video while I was out street busking for the first time with this instrument…
