Smaller bass buttons on a 12-bass setup
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:16:35 PM »

Watching the video by John Redmond that Jorden linked to in another post, I was intrigued by the bass buttons on his 12-bass Paddy Clancy box. Here's the best screenshot I could get from the clip.



They look a good deal smaller than usual, almost stradella-sized, and closer together, and definitely smaller than the ones in this (presumably older) photo on the maker's website:



This would seem to me to be an excellent idea: on my 12-bass box, the distance between the air lever and the lowest buttons is a problem, and aside from that, having the whole setup more compact would be helpful.

How come this isn't standard practice? Or is it, for some makers?

Sweet looking box!! One of the makers I would consider if I was going to buy a new box.
Do you think this is three or four voice?
Wonder if this bass set up is standard now or special order.
