Garvey Accordions have been available since 2003. Up to 2003 the quality of the beginner accordion was not of the highest standard. The Hohner brand was the best seller and the black dot had not been improved or upgraded since the 1950’s.
Sean sourced a maker to improve the quality and ended up producing what became the Garvey AAA. This accordion has always had the features of the professional accordions all of which were lacking in the Hohner and Parott or anything else available.. The present day Garvey accordions are known for their quality Tam reeds which are only ever found in the professional accordions.
Now in 2018 our Garvey catalogue consists of :
Garvey Tam 1 which is the Melodeon 4 stopper. in key of D
Garvey Tam 2 – 23 button, a 2 voice accordion with Tremolo tuning.
Garvey Tam 2 – 21 button, a 2 voice accordion with swing tuning.
Garvey Tam 3 – 23 button a 3 voice with 2 middle octive reeds and a sub octave. out of stock for the moment
Garvey accordions are presently being replicated by a few distributors who don’t involve themselves in research, they just copy what they see. But only The Garvey has the Quality reeds and Italian parts like buttons straps and brackets etc.
This is the New Garvey Melodeon Tam 1
The Tam 2 has Tipo A Mano Reeds and a new Bellows size which is priced at €1100.
The attached photo shows a quality Italian Soft Bag that the Melodeon comes in.
This is the GARVEY Wood accordion called the TAM 2.
The reason for the name on this accordion is the fact that it has TIPO A MANO Reeds.
These Reeds are used in the Castagnari and Paolo Soprani Jubilee accordions. This is the second of the new Garvey improver series price is €1100.
In 14 years I have never had to replace one broken reed which is a sign of the quality of the reeds.
This new 3 voice is now available and proving to be a big success because of its price €1300
It has 2 middle octave reeds and the lower reed comes in with the stopper
Again the name is in the reeds: Tipo A mano reeds.
These accordions play as well as any professional accordion and with the quality reeds produce a quality sound.
