This is pretty funny as on those Joe Cooley tapes you hear him playing a pretty dry tuned C#/D off and on, for the stepdancer for instance.  Maybe he used couplers to get that sound.

Didn't know Saltarelle were just a distribution firm.

Thanks for introducing these great Italian boxes to the British Isles, Triskel and Rees.

I'm intrigued, I've never heard Joe play a dry-tuned accordion, in fact "Irish" accordions only came in broad "factory" tuning in his day, and he usually played D/D#. Where did you hear that - is there a link to it?
