Irish Button Accordion for Learners
- The McNeela 21 Button Accordion is the perfect starter instrument for any beginner, especially self-taught learners.
If you want to learn to play the Irish button accordion but don’t have access to an accordion teacher or accordion lessons, rest assured that you’re learning to play on an instrument that’s approved by the very best Irish button accordion teachers.
- The McNeela 21 Button Accordion is carefully crafted with ease of play in mind, enabling the player to take control and play with confidence, right from the start.
The bass is tuned for playing traditional Irish music, according to the traditional Paolo Soprani layout, so that students can learn to play the bass on the accordion from the beginning.
Smaller accordions offer greater ease of playing. Due to their more compact size, the bellows deliver air to the reeds at a higher pressure. This makes it easier to play at a louder volume and also means you won’t have to work as hard moving the bellows.
At McNeela Instruments we are committed to providing customers with the highest standard of instruments at the most accessible prices. Our low cost, high quality instruments are designed to assist our customers to achieve their goals.
‘I bought this for my spouse... He is progressing with this instrument and I’m sure will soon be up to ‘session’ capability. It has been admired by fellow muso’s in our circle…’ - Joanna G.
Why We Use Czech Reeds
We only use the best quality reeds in our instruments, including those designed for beginner musicians. We want to enable you to sound good, right from your very first note. Our accordions feature top quality Czech made reeds which provide a bright, clear tone and plenty of volume.
Our McNeela 21 Button Accordion features B/C tuning. Simply put, this means that the outer row of buttons is in the key of B, and the inner row is in C.
B/C tuning lends itself well to playing traditional Irish tunes and ornamentation. This setup makes all the notes of the chromatic scale available to the player, allowing you to play a wide variety of tunes on this accordion in a number of keys.
B/C tuning is the most popular accordion tuning used in traditional Irish music and allows for a smooth, flowing style of playing.
Easy to Play
The pearlescent buttons have a smooth finish allowing your fingers to travel over them easily, allowing you to play at speed. They also offer a great response, making them easy to push, and therefore easy to play.
Note: New bellows may require a little breaking in, but once you have, they will allow for ease of movement and a fluid push/pull motion.
Sounds as Good as It Looks
With a pearlescent celluloid red finish, this is a sleek looking accordion, designed with ease of playing in mind. The Czech reeds provide a clear, crisp tone and plenty of volume. So once you’re feeling confident enough, you won’t struggle to be heard at a music session!
