accordion air button styles?

We have some evidence, however, that you may have to pay for the reeds.

accordion air button styles?

Post by WaltP »

I'm curious as to what style of air button other folks have on their button accordions, and what they like/don't like about it?

I gather different makes/models have different air button styles.

As a beginner with small hands, I'm finding that I quite like the "pull down" style air button on my Linnet accordion. It lets me hang on to the air button with the inside crease of my thumb's middle joint when reaching down with my ring finger to poke the lower bass buttons.

My only previous experience with air buttons is the push button on an anglo concertina.

I've played with various types of air buttons; pull-down, button, wedge and the one played with the heel of the thumb on one row boxes.

It's never been a issue for me. I've found that they all very quickly become second nature.
