A melodeon or diatonic button accordion is a member of the free-reed aerophone family of musical instruments. It is a type of button accordion on which the melody-side keyboard contains one or more rows of buttons, with each row producing the notes of a single diatonic scale. The buttons on the bass-side keyboard are most commonly arranged in pairs, with one button of a pair sounding the fundamental of a chord and the other the corresponding major triad (or, sometimes, a minor triad).

Our accordion selection is comprehensive and suits all levels of playing from beginner to advanced.

All over the world there is a bewildering array of Accordions/Melodeons/Squeeze Boxes being played, using different fingerings, tunings, keyboards, sizes, bellows, bass buttons etc. But here in Ireland the majority of “Accordions” sold and played in Irish music are 2-row button Accordions tuned B/C.

This is reflected in our selection below.
