Tim, I actually was wondering of a mini-prototype accordion. I think it would be awesome! The size of an Erika would be perfect. Not too big and not to small. Perhaps a Corona IIIm?

Miniature,  or simply smaller than usual ?

Castagnari " Benny"  but half the price.

I am ready to buy the new coronita. Is a great idea for people who had to give up playing accordion because back injuries. In my case for example pain stop my practice most of the time. I really want something like this accordion size.

Tim,Im sure you dont't remember me, I went to this years past Conjunto Festival in San Antonio,Texas and fell in love with the accordion. I am 13 and have been playing accordion for a while now but still at times, i feel like even the panther is to big and heavy. I asked if the Coronita would go into production?

Tim,
How about a box the size of the Hohner Pokerwork but in 3 rows ?
With a similar box structure ?

I'm afraid someone else has taken the lead for making such model before than Hohner...look at it. =(
I've heard that this accordion has the Erica measures and 34 buttons on the treble side.

This looks great and fun model, but there will be trade offs.

A smaller accordion holds less air, so if you play a lot of chords you are going to have to do carefull air management.

It's gonna be really crowded in there so building it is going to be all custom with no stock parts from other accordions so the production cost will be higher. It will have the same number of parts so the cost will not be lower.

If you can play diatonic patterns on an ipad, this mini-accordion would be more true-to-life.

Castagnari is well known for making small boxes with a big sound.

Benny, Benny "Big,  Matris, Mas   all three rows with 2 reeds treble.

I also like the original flared keyboard. Never have liked the later Hohner "hornless" boards.
The prototype has class.

What has happened to this project ?

Also..
The Erica and Pokerwork 2 rows have only 1 ( possibly two ) tone less than a three row.

Santiago Jimenez JR is my all time favorite Norteno/Tex Mex player. Before him, his father.
This music started on two rows.Keep the tradition alive. 
Make a better Erica or Pokerwork .. that would be my advice.
Improve the reed quality. Make it a 23 button  12/11 and a switch to remove the third in the bass.
