    Hi everybody
    Joseph Carrel sent me this video about is Pianistar, a piano accordina. someone tried it? what do you think about it? seems a very good instrument



    The keys on it looks like taken from Italian accordion 😉
    But I like its sound.

    It’s Joseph Carrels new instrument, based on the design of the Clavietta. To my ears it sounds very similar to the Clavietta and Accordina (the button version which proceeded the Clavietta). Along with the little clicks at the end of each note

    It is very interesting. I wonder what it costs.
    I would have liked to hear chords played on it.
    I wonder what the weight is.
    The size reminds me of the Vibrandoneon.
    It looks like the treble side of an accordion.
    I wonder how many reeds it is

    And the price is €2,490.00

    Yes, would like to hear chords, and wonder if there’s no chords on the demo because of the amount of air required per note? Its also difficult to tell how much louder than the Clavietta it is. That was the main weak point point of the Clavietta for me, the tone is very quiet and thin. Unsuitable for acoustic use, but beautiful when mic’ed up
