Re: Roland FR3X vs FR4X

As far as that bellows curve you are looking for, try this -
First go to ( bLC ) on your screen, there you will see 4 options #1 thru #4 , try selecting setting #1 (Fixed Low). Should get your bellows spread wide while playing :tup:
(Note; this should be on page 48 in your manual)

Re: 1930's Scandalli Super VI

I'm afraid not 30's vintage. Because of it's exterior design and plastic treble valves, I would put it at late 50's the earliest. If I had to make a guess I would say it looks like a mid 60's box.

Re: Roland Aftermarket Products

Now just a note:
There is a lithium pack being currently offered that does use quality Japan made batteries. The cost is &300.00 plus $25.00 shipping.
Will give it a try and report on it soon.

Re: What did you play before the accordion?

As what I played before the accordion? Well as I remember I was allowed to turn on the radio and search for tunes and when we got an old Dumont TV I was allowed to switch between the 3 channels we had. When 7 years old (some 65 years ago) my Mom took me to a music store to take lessons on the clarin...

Re: Slow learner?

With some thought and encouragement I, even a slow learner decided to dismiss my fears and persevere to do what I willed to do. In my case it worked. Some things take me longer to comprehend, and some things come as easy as falling off a rock. Do you remember the old phrase "Once you fall off the ho...

These Koning Meyer accordion stands have been offered here in the US for the past 60+ years. The sad fact is that 98% sold in the past are now in storage gathering dust. The problem owners found that once a box is fastened to the stand, it then made the performer immobile when using the contraption ...

Being tagged a (Slow Learner) is really not a issue you to cause you concern. I myself was a slow learner musically in my early years, but with advice and encouragement I overcame it.

Re: Reed problem

Could you answer some ??'s before I reply? What is the make of your box? What are your reed blocks made of? Are your new valves leather or plastic? What glue did you use for fastening the new valves? What I'm getting at here is that some vinyls, glues and lacquers when drying and are combined in a c...
