The basis is part of a scrap Lowrey keyboard, cut down to 37 keys Pic.1 Shows new bus bars fitted and wires identified, then with scanner module fitted Pic.2 The scanner module is a 3 octave scanner purchased from Roman Sowat in Poland, who took time to help me to choose and fit it.The accordion plays well and I would like to recommend his work, and to thank him again. I have included his Web site number in my Links page.

I play this accordion through a Roland PRO. E. Intelligent arranger keyboard, and I can get all the modes and functions displayed, including a split keyboard. I made this instrument initially to try out the keyboard scanner without modifying my Skindali accordion, and maybe damaging it.It has proved so successful that when I make Mrk 2 it again will be completely home made.
