Pariselle/Mash AD three voice LMM with three switches which allow the player to select any combination of the three reeds. Reeds are Binci Professional a mano steel reeds on dural plates. There are 26 treble buttons arranged 10/9/6 and 14 basses. The scale starts on the second button and is Emmanuel Pariselle’s standard note layout. The bass layout has typical 12 basses plus an extra two buttons which are bass only which makes the basses chromatic. The bass voicing is three reeds per bass and two reeds per chord (tonic and fifth only). The timber used in the casework is solid mahogany veneered with flamed mahogany, and maple detailing. This is a new instrument, has been built to a high standard and plays beautifully.
Complete March 2018 at an Emmanuel Pariselle melodeon building course at Halsway Manor. The builder Chris Mash is a retired college lecturer in workshop practise, who has gone on to become part of the team supporting Emmanuel’s courses. He has introduced a variety of innovations into the build process on the course such as laser cutting for complex wooden components, and better quality jigs for producing the components for the bass mechanism. This model includes a pair of sliding register on the bass cover plate that serve to allow the player to attenuate the bass sound.
Includes straps and a good quality padded gig bag.
