How To Choose The Accordion

How To Choose The Accordion

​When you decided to start learning accordion (either button or piano one), you may think to have your own instrument for home practice. Of course, from the beginning you may rent one from the music studio, but in long perspective it is better to buy one for you. 

So how to choose an accordion? 

Just like clothes or shoes accordions have different sizes (by the way, violin, cello and other stringed and bowed instruments, too, are divided by size: For the smallest - is "eighths", followed by, "quarters", "half" ( 1/2), three-quarter-(3/4) and the whole). 

Roughly the same thing happens with the accordions. So how do you choose the right accordion? Here it is necessary to look at the amount of bass, ie, the more buttons on the left keyboard - bass, the bigger instrument. 

But I have to mention in this article, I will consider only instruments with Stradella (not Free Bass) of the left keyboard. Despite the range of the instruments is huge: from 3 to 12 bass buttons, 48, 60, 72, 80, 96, 120 - I would divide all accordions into 5 main groups:


These are just the toys, suitable for pre-school kids

​So called "ladies size". This accordion is good enough to play any standard bass songs as 120 full range accordion and it is much lighter 

​This one is good for primary school students. Has 6th diminished row, which actually is not necessary for this students' level.

​Full size adult accordion!

​Similar sizes with or without diminished chords. Suitable for children over 12 years old.
