david fabre Posted November 8, 2020 Share Posted November 8, 2020 (edited) Hello all Over my years of playing I have experimented several layout modifications on all my instruments. I have eventually converged to a personal design, with only few modifications with respect to standard Wheatstone layout, but which to my point of view improve a lot, at least for what I'm playing (especially for chord playing). Surprisingly the modifications brings the layout closer to both the Jeffries system and the C/G melodeon. Some years ago when I was a regular contributor to this forum there was often discussion on this issue and I was thinking about posting my layout. I'm doing it now because I'm considering selling one of my instruments, so explaining the layout will be useful at least for one person ! I'll first explain here the layout of my G/D 30 button built by Edgley. If there is interest I'll post also the layouts of my other instruments (wheatsone 40, levitina 37b, mini Norman 13b). I provide two version of the layout : the first with the true notes, and the second one transposed as a C/G (I actually play it as if it was a C/G, with the result as transposing one fourth down). Modified notes are in red. Explanation in next post. Edited November 9, 2020 by david fabre Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
