My much loved, much played gold Weltmeister Rubin (30/60/II/3)* accordion is home again after several weeks at Smythe’s Accordion Center.
9+ years solid of playing had taken its toll on some of the keys around the low D. Kimric Smythe diagnosed that some parts had to be replaced. I and my poor squeeze had to endure waiting for those parts to come from the Weltmeister factory in Klingenthal, Germany. Once they arrived Kimric performed a successful surgery. Sigh of relief.
Now I can look forward to many more gigs with my old gold friend.
Kimric is an inventor, builder and all around clever guy. He recently distilled plums and roses into a delectable 60 proof liquor — one of the many perks of visiting the accordion center 😉
* 30/60/II/3 means 30 keys on the keyboard, 60 bass buttons, two sets of reeds on treble side, three sets of reeds on bass side.
