“Melodeon 4 Stopper”
As played by Brendan Begley on TG4. see below video
This Melodeon has high quality TAM reeds. The combination is 1 x picollo, 2 middle octive and 1 lower octive reed. This is similar to the cajun accordion and a very powerfull sound.
I usually stock the key of D but can be ordered in any key.

This is the New Garvey Melodeon Tam 1 Price is €900
The Tam 1 has tam Reeds or Tipo A Mano reeds and this gives it a lovely rich sound.
The Garvey Melodeons originally came from the factory with a bellows too small for the accordion so I had a batch of Bellows made especially and these new bellows give the accordion the right amount of air required for the 4 voice that it is.
