Carmine A. Pasquale at the AccEF yahoo group posted this:  I totally want one.  If it was big enough you could replace your whole bed.  That’d be weird though.

Do they have to say “soundless” because someone complained that it didn’t play?

Plush accordion, what could be cooler?

[I had said that anybody who gets me one of these gets two free copies of my book when it comes out. (See if they have green like the little one in Annie Proulx’s Accordion Crimes).  But then I realized that I thought the (really low) price was only $50.  Now I see that’s just the postage.  I don’t suppose anybody’s gonna trade two “as yet unfinished, but getting there” books for a $450 pillow.  Still, if you wanna get me one….  See, even to make a stuffed accordion is really costly.  I’m sure at an hourly rate for the work, it’s still a bargain.]
Also:
Cool Art-Deco font there.
At this accordion festival in Finland, they have  a birdhouse made of an accordion.  How cool is that?
Songbirds that nest here are really LOUD in the morning.

They also have stained glass, which is pretty.

It is spring!

    I am looking for a schematic of a transmaster accordian from the 1960’s. It is made in Italy.
    Electtonic with generator.

    Where can I find the schematic?

      Hmmm, many people face the difficult challenge of who or where to ask for information on older accordions. Unfortunately, there is no good resource to point you to. Those old electronic organ accordions especially are a great mystery. My best suggestion would be a site that has info on the Cordovox (a similar instrument by a different company.) I don’t even know if the Imperial company still exists, accordion manufacturers changed brand-names and came and went so much that the history is an uncharted mess. I dream of helping set up a wiki of old accordion info, but it hasn’t happened yet.

      The chordovox site is impressive though, lots of pictures and some schematic-type info for an instrument similar to yours.
