Very lovely.  But I thought of it as the other way around: concertina + bagpipe!

Beautiful! But why is it labelled "comedy"?

Because of that wonderful laugh they share as the video is beginning.

Tona,

Thanks!

Ok. Better than words and tricky scheme, here is a quick video I just made...

The reason of my keaboard?.. I played diatonic accordion at first, then chromatic.. It is a mix of all that...

After chasing a few links, the right hand side seems to go according the André Verchuren (also spelled Verschueren) system:

D  F  Ab B  D  F  Ab B
  C# E  G  Bb C# E  G  Bb
 A  C  Eb F# A C  Eb F#

It is like the right hand side of a C-system CBA but with the "wrong" slant of the notes.

A diagram with French note names can be found here bxdt3ogi.jpg

Thats it!!
At the left hand, buttons are organized by couple of octaves according to the order of fiths.. It is complicated to explain with words but with the vidéo it should be easier to understand...

Left hand side (as Tona just said) the diagram goes like this:

F   Bb3 Bb4 G3  G4  E3  E4  C#3 C#4
l  Eb3 Eb4 C3  C4  A3  A4  F#3 F#4
o Ab3 Ab4 F3  F4  D3  D4  B3  B4  
o
r

Where C4 is middle C (I could be confused about the specific octaves).

 

At first sight It seems to be designed to play oom-pah in keys with a couple of sharps or flats, as the fundamental, third and fifth are nearby.  I wonder who first came up with this, Thomas Restoin perhaps (Tona?)

 

Very interesting.  Thanks!

 

(Edited to fix octaves.)

Bravo ocd ! You are right!
You also guess well that I wanted to play rythmic and harmonic accompaniement with the left hand. Not only counterpoint that’s why I did not choose a mirror keyboard of the right hand for example. It seems tricky but it works for me and the music I want to play!

I found a web page (in French) that discusses this type of left hand keyboard (omitting the octaves).

I met Malo a few years ago. We talked about different system of keyboard but he had more reflexion about it and it was difficult for me to follow all his explanations! Very nice and enthusiast guy. He plays his own system accordion and music from Brittany.
