The instalments described on that page add up to £1550 rather than £2050 as mentioned elsewhere on the page.

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.

Fri 25 October - Friday 1 November 2019
Emmanuel Pariselle One-Row Melodeon Build

We’re delighted to be able to offer this course at Halsway to complement the popular 2.5 row courses that Emmanuel Pariselle has been running here since 2016. Emmanuel is one of Europe’s finest instrument makers and his courses – with places limited to 10 – usually sell-out well in advance.

Emmanuel will guide novice makers through the steps to build your own one-row melodeon. Whilst having a great sense of humour (and extremely good English) Emmanuel is also a demanding task master and will ensure that all instruments made are of the highest possible calibre. In addition to having a wonderful instrument, you’ll also benefit from the inestimable experience of working with a master craftsman and learn techniques for construction, maintenance and repair in the future.

The box you build will reflect your individual preferences and there is flexibility in terms of key, inlay, pads etc. Case wood is American black walnut (please note the photo above is one of Emmanuel’s in French Walnut) and reeds are high quality Binci a mano hand-made Italian reeds.

You’ll be building a one row in American black walnut with 10 metal buttons on the right, tuning LMMP (with possibility of tremollo between the 2MM), 4 stops on the top of the box, 2 buttons bass and chord on the left, plus air button.

Pads can be in American walnut or golden pads, you have a choice of key and layout (D, C, etc), inlay (see www.marechaux.fr). One shoulder strap (or none), thumb strap, and a good quality gig bag are included.

Usual keys are D (quebec, Irish, cajun) and C (Cajun); Bb, A, G are a bit low and Eb, E, F a bit high….

This is an intensive course and you’ll be working long days, but Halsway is an excellent venue, secluded and peaceful enough to free you from distractions, but with superb facilities and a bar on site. Accommodation and all meals (and as much tea and coffee as you can drink!) are included, so all you need to think about is the build – and maybe winding down in the evening with a session or two (bring instruments!).

I built a one-row in G on one of Emmanuel's courses a few years ago. It actually works fine. Only one slight modification was needed from the standard design:
The lowest reed on the L voice needed the floor of the reed chamber carving out a little bit to accommodate the large amplitude of swing of the brass-weighted reed tongue. Apart from that, no additional problems and it sounds great. Sample here:

Course participants are free to choose the key they prefer.  Lester’s suggestions are a just useful guide to some of the possible reasons to choose.

An update - we have three places left!

Details here: https://halswaymanor.org.uk/event/melodeon-building-course-one-row-with-emmanuel-pariselle/

Please note that unlike the 2.5 row courses we run here will Emmanuel, this is very likely a one-off, so if you're interested, don't wait for 'next year's course' - there isn't one!

Latest!!!

We've had a cancellation, which means we have one place available on this ONE ROW course. Get in touch asap if you'd like it, I think we will still be in time - just - to order reeds!

I am on the course. From past experience my melodeon will be the one with things stuck the wrong way round :-\

10 one row melodeons made, 3 to Ireland, one to USA with Cajun tuning the rest to England.  They all sounded great and there was some excellent music played, but not until late as the work continued well into the evening.
