Got this as a present for a younger brother who wanted to start learning the accordion. Did not want to spend a fortune on a full size model as he is still quite small in stature so was looking for a smaller model. Had a look at this Startone Puck kids Accordian and it seemed to fit the bill.
The package arrived on time and it came in quite a small package. Opened and it basically just had the Accordion and straps inside. The accordion took a little setting up as it was a little difficult to add the straps to the slots and to be honest the straps are a little tight. It would be a help if they were a little longer. Also one or two pins needed to be tapped in after opening but this took less than a minute to sort.
The instrument has a great tone for one so small. While it may not have all the bells and whistles of a full size instrument it is great if you want to get a feel for playing accordion for a younger child to learn on.
Overall a great instrument for the price and one I would recommend for someone who wants to get their young child an accordion to learn on.
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
For children ...
I ordered this little accordion from pure curiosity, because I wanted to see what you got for the price and I was looking for a small easy-to-carry accordion for camp fire and party.
The first impression: The workmanship is okay for less than 100EUR - not all worked fine but overall solid - only the treble buttons have good leeway up and down, otherwise the buttons are lecihtno and speak quickly. The bellows is difficult to pull and after 20cm you notice a high resistance. The strap for the left hand is not adjustable, for large hands fast too tight (the same applies to delivered belts, but good, for children) ...
Then the most important thing is the sound: the bass side I leave the same time, four basses with major chord (F, C, G, D) you can not start anyway, but they sound surprisingly deep for the size. The disc sounds in the Musette style very clear, but was already unpacked the fis in the train direction totally detuned. Otherwise one could have accustomed to the small range of sounds.
Conclusion: In itself, this instrument is a great idea, only one could have implemented it better. In contrast to the smallest Startone for 30EUR 4Diskanttasten justify however no threefold price ... I will send it back again tomorrow, because proper play is not on it - should these defects however in a successor be improved, I would keep this immediately. Apparently, expensive branded accordions from Klingenthal or similar already pay off!
