A 9 switch accordion has 4 reed blocks, LMMM or LMMH for example, in the same key. A two box has 4 reed blocks with each pair in a different key configured to MM.

So, you could potentially turn a 4 reed block accordion into a 4 tone accordion with all keys "dry tuned". It will also depend on how the registers are configured to play each of the reed blocks.

Yes, thats what he means. Have you played a 3 switch box before? Reason I ask is because if you do what you plan, all your reeds will sound like a violin or clarinet switch. If you're ok with that, then go for it.

Personally, I would keep all the original reeds incase something happens and you need to sell. Hopefully you never need to. But this way you can put it back and maybe easier to sell. I've seen accordions go up for sale because of a financial emergency but they have a hard time because of "customizations" they've made that are not too appealing to others. The biggest one is having their name engraved or band name. Just something to think about.

No. A five switch has 3 sets of reeds LMM. A three switch only has 2 sets of reeds MM. The lower octave reeds in a five switch gives it a fuller sound.

Good answers. The sounds are always limited by how many sets of voices there are, and what their configuration is.
