New box!
« on: March 13, 2019, 11:03:14 PM »

Hello all,
I've just received (yesterday) my new box! It's a one-row from Mélodie in Québec. I'm very pleased with it (although I'm not really used to the small size and handling of such accordions, I guess it'll come with time).
So here is a short (and not flawless) clip I recorded just after unboxing the beast, to share with you my enthusiasm with this newcomer:

Nice melodeon and well played.  I love the sound of a Quebec made melodeon.  Enjoy.

Love it! Great playing! I’ve yet to find a box that plays as well as a Melodie! Happy for you :)

You're all very kind, thank you.
Apart from the left-hand handling, the main issue for me is dealing with air pressure in making so that I don't always play very loudly (the shift from the 18-bass Handry is huge).
