I got my first melodeon today!
« on: July 22, 2018, 04:59:21 PM »

I am thrilled to have purchased my first melodeon today, after wanting one for a good few years and I just wanted to share my news!
I've played music since I was 11, but to come home today with an old but beautiful Pokerwork DG for just £120 - an absolute steal!
I look forward to playing many a tune on it!

Elderly amateur musician hoping to stave off dementia by learning to play the melodeon.  Main instrument a Tommy, also D/G and G/C pokerworks,  a single row 2 stop Hohner, and a new addition to the free reedery, a rather splendid Paolo Soprani four voice 120 bass c-system chromatic button accordion.  Very shiny, very loud, and about the same size and weight as a small car.  Now I’ve traded me Benny with (ahem) a cash adjustment, to a three voice 60 bass Castagnari K3.
