Accordéons Fratèlibénar


We can study the possibility of transforming your favorite instrument on request. After study, if the manufacture of a Corbinola based on your accordion is possible, an estimate will be provided. We always try to keep a maximum of original features of the instrument (registers, sound, aesthetics) within the limits of possible.

Original accordion is fully disassembled in our workshop to refurbish it and to affix all necessary components that will allow him self-playing.

Disassembly of a Maugein Frères accordion for its automation

The accordion will read MIDI files (.mid) on the SD card and play the music through solenoids. Each solenoid corresponds to one of the 49 notes of the accordion. Indeed, the automatic accordion has a range limited to 49 ratings.
It could be possible to go up to 64 notes on a bigger instrument, but it would be heigher and more expansive.

The accordion comes with over 250 pieces of all styles, but you can also create your own pieces on computer with a MIDI editing software. It is also possible to record directly from an accordion or other MIDI instrument. The resulting files will be transfered to the SD card of the accordion to be played immediately.

The pieces can be classified into the memory card of the accordion, allowing, for example to write a show program. Various options allow you to play songs in the set order, shuffle, loop etc...
