As I mentioned previously, my Preciosa is also B-flat and E-flat. The unisonoric gleichton button is a bit confusing. When playing on the Eb row, I have to steal the missing note from the Bb row. I can now switch between a regular two row and the club system without much difficulty.

I understand the de-clubbing idea, making the gleichton button bisonoric but what is "fettled by Microdot"?

I have decided to learn the various systems and variations as they are and not modify the button boxes.

A unisonoric Garmon from Russia would be an adventure.

Microbot. Is Mike Rowbotham of this parish. He is a fettler who lives way down in the west country. If you look at the Home page on here you will find him, and other fettlers listed, along with their contact details..

I guess I need a dictionary from your area of the world. I have heard of fiddlers but not fettlers.

It was my idea too, long long ago. Sadly but one day I understand - too many different systems for me  :(
If you like adventures, you must try bandoneon. It's all keys instrument, and every key has his own layout. When i learned A, D and G, I thought I had already learned to play bandoneon  :||: But it is endless learning (now I feel free in C, D, E, F, G, A and Bb keys, others are for future  ;) ). 2 or 3 rows "diatonic" accordions was easy walk after this, Garmon - a little harder, but possible. My problems started with new "diatonic" boxes (club, non-club, different bass layouts with 2 row 12 basses or 3 row 16 basses), so i started "to club" non-club accordions, to change bass side systems to one for all, and final pass was C/C# system. When I got Soberano accordion with this layout I decided that it's too much for me, and decided to change system of this wonderful accordion.
