The original microphones setup used a custom size 3-cell rechargeable battery mounted under the grill. The battery didn't
hold charge and I couldn't find the same size rechargeable battery stack. Since there is not enough room for a standard 9V
battery under the grill I modified the circuit and mounted the 9V battery in the bass compartment, the standard location for
modern condenser microphones wiring. The battery is new.

The On/Off switch was used for recharging the old battery (now removed) and was bypassed with the current setup.
The Stereo/Mono switch works as intended and is very useful and gives the performer the option to use both
mono and stereo amplification depending on the specific performance needs.


















The accordion has been voiced and tuned at the Accordion Gallery and sounds beautiful.
