McNeela Wooden B/C Accordion Reviews

'Well made and very nice sound.' - Larry S.

'Beautiful instrument... It looks good and is easy to play. It has a good sound with plenty of tremolo' - Iryu S.


21 Button or 23 Button - what’s the difference?

The McNeela Wooden Frame Accordion comes with the option of 21 or 23 buttons. Either model is perfect for playing traditional Irish music.

The 21 button model is lighter, weighing just 2.95kg. It’s perfect for smaller statured players, providing excellent ease of movement.

The 23 button accordion weighs 3.1kg. This model will give you a greater range of notes without adding too much weight to the box. With more notes you can play more repertoire. While this may not appeal to a beginner right now, it will give you more options once your playing reaches the next level.

Take Your Playing to the Next Level

  • The McNeela Wooden Frame Accordion is carefully crafted with ease of play in mind, enabling the player to take control and play with confidence, right from the start.
  • It features a flat fingerboard for ease of playing, with fast action and effortless response from the keys. 
  • 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.

B/C Tuning

Our McNeela 21 Button Beginner 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

The McNeela Wooden Frame Accordion is a sleek looking instrument. The beautiful cherrywood frame comes in a natural finish with soft rounded edges. The grille is decorated with intricate fretwork. This venting allows the accordion to produce plenty of volume. 

The Czech reeds provide a clear, crisp tone and help to produce great volume. This small accordion packs a punch. So once you’re feeling confident enough, you won’t struggle to be heard at an Irish music session!
