    In 1997, an exciting new band emerged from the Los Angeles music scene. They played a unique mixture of punk rock, traditional Celtic music, and Irish folk. They went on to become a staple of the folk punk scene. Their name: Flogging Molly. A crucial part of their sound: the accordion. The accordion is mostly associated with traditional folk and classical music; however, it also has its place in pop, rock, jazz, and even death metal.

    There are two main kinds of accordion, distinguished by their different keyboards: button accordions and piano accordions. All accordions have a button keyboard on the left-hand side for bass chords, but on the right-hand side, where the melody is played, they can have either piano or button keys.

    A further invisible distinction is the type: there are both chromatic and diatonic accordions.

    The most common accordion in the Americas is the diatonic. It’s smaller than the chromatic, and always has button keys. It has two notes per button, depending on whether you push or pull the bellows, thus allowing for it to be smaller. It’s popular in folk, Vallenato, Norteño, Musette, pop, and rock.
    The chromatic accordion is most common in mainland Europe and Russia. Chromatic accordions can have piano or button keys on the right-hand side – a question of personal preference. It is often heard in European folk, pop, and rock.
    We offer a variety of accessories for accordions to enable you to make the most of your instrument and have the best possible playing experience. From straps made from different materials and in different colors, to gig bags and cases for safe transport.
