Neotech Pad-It straps

Pad-It Straps

A simple yet elegant strap that is sure to be a hit! The shoulder pads are made with an anti-microbial memory foam that conforms to the shoulders for a comfortable fit that makes even heavy instruments a breeze to wear.

Length is adjustable from 33" to 51".

Accordion Harness Straps

Ideal for small- to medium-sized accordions. These taper from 3" at the shoulder down to 2" and are length adjustable from 23" to 49".

Its innovative new design combines a padded foam core, neoprene, and heavy elastic for a truly unique feel.

Microphones

The Button Box stocks accordion and concertina microphones from Microvox, a small company in the United Kingdom specializing in mic systems for acoustic instruments. We also carry Microvox microphones for other instruments, including violin, viola, flute, whistle, bodhran, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, brasses, and banjo. Microvox provides a three-year warranty on their products.

Microvox microphones use electret condenser mic elements. All are studio quality or better. Accordion and concertina microphones attach to the instrument with strips of Velcro, making installation simple and reversible, allowing for easy transfer of mics from one instrument to another, and providing some insulation from mechanical noise. See the Microvox FAQ for mor information.

Accordion Microphones

The accordion treble microphone is a long bar with 3 or 4 microphone elements. Many players choose to mic the bass side of the accordion as well. Microvox makes two series for accordions: the M420/M410/M405 series, which requires a power supply unit; and the M305/M310 series, which is powered by an AA battery.
