Does such an accordion exist? I have never heard of a Gabbaneli button accordion with two master switches. Thank you.[confused] I am just a beginner so I am not very knowledgeable bl.

That type of box is usually a two tone box. One master switch for each key. But if you look at some of the higher end chromatics, some also have more than one master switch. Including what's called chin registers. These are switches that can be activated with your chin as you play.

Thanks for the quick response Ruben, now my next question would be does this type of accordipon have a different or better sound than a 5 switch?

The difference would be that the first type of 6 switch Ruben mentioned, the two tone, would have two different keys, like GCF for 3 of the switches and FBbEb for the other 3. (its basically two accordions in one). This would be 2 reeds per button in each key, so a "two voice" accordion in two different keys.

A 5 switch is a "three voice" accordion where there are two violin-octave reeds and one bassoon-octave reed, per button. The sound of this one versus the 6 switch would be more full and include a lower reed while on the master switch, giving it a deeper sound as well.

Important to also mention, the 6 switch can swap between keys, like GCF or FBbEb, as mentioned above. The 5 switch is only in one particular key.

Thanks Cantu, I don't mean to be naive but I always thought that you could get a two tone accordion with 5 switches /registers. Thanks again. One more thong by 3 voice accordion do you mean like for vallanto?[confused]

While vallenato boxes do have three reed banks or voices, that's not what he meant. The vallenato boxes have three mid-range or violin octave range reed banks, while your norteño 3 reed bank boxes have only 2 w a lower octave reed bank or bassoon. The only boxes that have all of these features are your 4 reed bank 9 switch boxes. There are two different setups for these boxes, the most common LMMM(3mid and a bass) or LMMH(2mids, a bass and a piccolo).
