Midi and Microphones
Internal microphones are an easy and convenient way of amplifying your accordion without using hand held microphones mounted on stands. They can be specified and factory installed in new instruments, or “retro-fitted” to your present accordion.
Modern systems offer multiple microphone “capsules” for the right and left hand, with separate volume controls for each mounted discretely on the treble grill.

Please call or email Rob for further details and prices.
Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) enables you to play electronic sounds generated by a midi equipped keyboard/synthesizer or table top “expander” using your acoustic accordion (or other midi fitted instrument).
A Midi accordion is fitted with switches on each key and button which trigger “Note On” and “Note Off” messages when keys are depressed and released. These Midi message are sent from the accordion to a connected expander via a 5-pin cable (or in some cases wirelessly), triggering your selected sounds.
Most Midi systems allow the selection of one synthesized sound on the bass buttons, one on the chord buttons and two on the treble keyboard. Combined with the accordions reeds, you can sound like a five piece band (six if you play to drum rhythms generated by the expander)!
Midi is a creative tool that expands an accordions flexibility and is well suited to entertainers looking for “big” and varied sounds.
Midi systems can be specified and factory installed in new instruments, or “retro-fitted” to your present accordion.
