Hohner Double-Ray B-C Melodeon
This 1920’s Hohner Double-Ray B-C Melodeon has been fully renovated in my workshop. This classic example is quite a rare creature now,and even though it has seen many a night playing at the local ceilidh,the old girl has many more years left in her.
The reeds and the bellows are in fine fettle and the valves have been replaced very recently.
A padded new gig bag is included with the melodeon as well as 1 years warrranty.
A melodeon or diatonic button accordion is a member of the free-reed aerophone family of musical instruments. It is a type of button accordion on which the melody-side keyboard contains one or more rows of buttons, with each row producing the notes of a single diatonic scale. The buttons on the bass-side keyboard are most commonly arranged in pairs, with one button of a pair sounding the fundamental of a chord and the other the corresponding major triad (or, sometimes, a minor triad).
Diatonic button accordions are popular in many countries, and used mainly for playing popular music and traditional folk music, and modern offshoots of these genres.
