My latest acquisition is a three row A/D/G a Hohner el rey del vallenato - being dark - mat black, and el rey means the king, I called him Elvis - despite the three rows and triple voices it is lighter than the other Hohners with similar attributes which are too heavy for me to play comfortably. It could do with one more button to extend the A row lower, but I should learn to play higher up and that lack will force me to do so.
I don't think I'll be venturing into the tunes of Colombia any time soon, but just as they can use the Hohner for their own music, Elvis seems happy enough playing for the morris.

Ann, you must know by now that you will always need one more button.It is the melodeon player's dilemma.
