Does anyone know what type of accordions does "El Binomio de Oro" uses. Its a vallenato type of group. I'm guessing that they might be hohner's in GCF, but what type of tunning do they have? Where would I be able to purchase one of these? Thanx.

It's a Hohner III BEA (BEsAs). Very cool sound!

They use

ADG, BbEbAb, BEA, CFBb, DGC, EAD (octave higher than norteño EAD accordions)

Plus different types of tuning such as lirico, brillante, armonizado.  In other words, they can have up to 3 different sounding accordions per tone.

  As is well known by most forum members,most Colombian musicians use harsh sounds in their accordions,as well as high tones in their performances,also they like to use mostly the Corona III model because of its strident sound...

Israel Romero Is the accordion player for Binomio de Oro and the last time I saw them in concert he had over 12 accordions with him on stage. Very diffrent tunings on each one im sure. Many of their songs have one of a kind sounding accordions. Do some research and you will find he is one of the best of both older vallenato music and newer songs. I just saw the old lead singer for Binomio de Oro in concert, Jean Carlos Centeno in orlando and Israel Romero's nephew José Fernando 'El Morre' Romero plays accordion for him and he also has 12 accordions he uses in concert. See the Pictures on http://www.elvallenato.com front page right now. The Romeros are great to see in concert. If your Looking for one accordion to start with I would recommend  A Corona III Cinco Letra  (BbEbAb) tuning.

Yeah,thus it's,they do the equivalent of our norteño or Tejano musicians who carry many accordions out with them,because on it they've a great variety of tones and styles for their songs or instrumental melodies,in a way of making their performances more comfortable....

There are many different keys. I lived in Colombia and played so many. My favorites are: Cinco letra alzado, ADG Alzado - brillante, and the sostenido armonizado, Then there is a BEA in either brillante or armonizado, FBE in a higher octave and so on... I in the future would love to get a bunch! But the money!!! lol

Guy,
    Corona III Cinco Letras Bb Eb A.  I played one in Panama last week, the owner paid $1500.00 in Panama City for it.

All Corona III's are expensive. I remember they were almost $1800.00 in 1994 (Made in Germany).
