Hohner Student II piano accordion

Sold: Hohner Student II piano accordion.  Made in Germany.  This little accordion has 26 keys and twelve basses, which in practice means bass fundamental and chords in Bb,F,C,G,D,A. Major chords are normal for the Student II, but I removed the major third note for each chord, so they work for major and minor tunes. Please see the video below of the same model of instrument (previously sold from this website) for further explanation and demonstration, T

Parrot accordion 30 key

Parrot compact piano accordion 30 key

Here is an example of a Parrot compact piano accordion. Made in China, this instrument  has 2 voices and 30 treble keys, which means you can get down to the lower G, which is very useful indeed. It has 24 bass, which as you can see from the demo, is enough. Parrot accordions have a bright sound and this one is comfortable and easy to play.
