    Hi to all,
    My Strunal 50/1 satisfies me, since David Desbois set it up. The sound is decently good.
    BUT, next summer I plan a third trip to Boston... and Upton Bass is just 100 miles from there. I should NEVER drive those 100 miles. Their entry level Bohemian is great for the price.
    NO, NO, don't go there.
    Sigh...

    P.S. I still play the button box. At my last trip to Boston, I went to the Button Box store to trade for a fine B/C accordion made in Germany. Boston is a risky area for musicians I guess.

  2. Upton price gouges on rehairs. Spend your money on lobster and going out to hear all the great musicians up here! I've lived in Boston for a year and half and never stopped in Mystic. I went back to Texas to get a rehair at Quantum.

    I also had David do some set-up work on my Strunal. He did a great job.

    I think you should tell all of us to stop button in, and act accordion to your best judgment.
