Ethos public relations have helped to design and commission a set of three metallic accordion pin badges finished in copper, nickel and gold plating.
They were made in England by a long established family run business based in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter.
Modelled on a traditional 3 row bayan button accordion from Tula in Russia, it makes an ideal gift for chromatic accordion, diatonic accordion or bayan players, performers or enthusiasts. In fact they will make a perfect accessory for those interested in any of the multitude of instruments that combine bellows and buttons.
Musicians are often very proud of the instrument they play and until now there haven’t been metallic button accordion badges available to buy, whereas there are plenty of violin, guitar and even piano accordion badges available. I’m very glad to say there are now.
As far as I know these are the only button accordion pin badges available in the UK and are ideal gifts for accordion teachers to give to students. The three different metallic finishes on the badges can even make them suitable as a three tier award system.
These badges have been produced at a time when the button accordion is enjoying something of a revival, amongst classical as well as folk musicians, due to the variety and versatility of these wonderful instruments.
The badges cost £5 each, or a set of all three colours costs £12 (postage and packaging is calculated on the checkout page). Accordion teachers and music shops looking for larger quantities should contact me for prices.
