    Checked out the reviews, videos and related posts.

    Not a single mention of an accordion. :confused:

    A search also lists at least 4 other models.

    How does one choose? o_O

    I’m also curious why @MarkDyson was searching for accordion tuners in the first place. :sneaky:

    Glad to see they're locking tuners. :D

    Mickey, I'm thinking you and I could collaborate and turn out one hell of a dance video!

    I cannot believe that you are even asking this question, Mark. For crying out loud, what else are you supposed to use to secure your accordion strings?

    Maybe this is an AMAZON thing. Could this be somehow related to AMAZON's Jeff Bezos, going into "outer space"? :cry::LOL::ROFLMAO:

    Apparently accordions don't come with these.

    You buy them as an accessory.

    Will those items above fit this instrument? :)



    Perhaps those two guys are very small? :LOL:

    I thought the tone came from the elbows.

    Or maybe the elbellows?

    No, it's a regular item.
    I usually see them right next to the banjo reeds.

    Amazon is amazing! I've had one of these for years and always thought it was for setting up a guitar as a lap steel!

    My inner nerd is probably showing (again - as if my outer nerd isn't enough), but I can see this happening when you upload a huge list of Musical Instrument Accessories to sell in your Amazon store, and you don't specify what instrument they are for, and it defaults to the first one in an alphabetical list of options.

    Yeah. When I was self employed I got a gig where this guy was trying to get over a thousand different area rugs into his client's web site shopping cart. I got paid to find a way to automate it. I can see this happening (unless you hired me. Heh). :Beer:

    Just search "Accordion Accessories" on Amazon for an educational list of all the available add-ons for your accordion.

    Including Dunlop picks.
