I'm a Yorkie!
My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

My new avatar says it all, I'll try to do a recording in the next week or so, once I feel a bit more in charge of it!

May I ask how much they are, please? Accordions are not even mentioned on the web site, though Carole never really liked them 😉

Happy with my VanderAa. Sold the Oakwood to a good home 5 years ago.

Regarding cost, earlier in the thread, this was posted:

The price of £2,800 was mentioned as a standard price (the first pre-orders got a discount).
...
Hopefully someone else can say how to contact Martyn.

So, given its been like a year, with euro fluctuations and reed costs, maybe that figure has changed but I think it's the right ballpark. A mere ~£500 more than the DB 'super'. The three voice was another ~500 more, much like the price jump with the bincis from 2 to 3.

For now, due to wording on the https://squeezeboxes.co.uk/pages/oakwood-boxes page, I'd say if you're curious, emailing the squeezeboxes people is the thing to do really, instead of going via the oakwood instruments page. Should get you the most up to date information on what might be possible and when. I think both methods would reach them though, but clearly they're not presenting these boxes as easily buyable. I think it's all still a bit experimental and in high demand, so as with anyone else making these top draw instruments, expect a wait!

My new avatar says it all, I'll try to do a recording in the next week or so, once I feel a bit more in charge of it!

Congrats on getting your box brainread, looking forward to your video! Just make sure to flip it horizontally so none of us get confused about the lefty mod!
