I am having trouble finding one row melodeons, can anyone recommend a maker,model, or store? Also say you have a two row box in D/G, would one of the rows(for example the D row) be the same as a one row box in D? If so it would probably make sense to get a two row since they are easier to find.

Note that prices are in Canadian dollars, which you can
multiple by about 0.8 to get the US dollar amount.

Two row melodeons won't work the same or sound the same although each
row is usable in the same way. That's because a Cajun one-row melodeon
has 4 sets of reeds rather than the 2 sets per row you would usually
find on a 2 row melodeon.

No luck there unfortunately, any other places to look?

No luck where? Do you need a Cajun accordion or just a one-row?

They might be able to order in a D one for you. I think
D is the most popular one in Newfoundland so they
might just be sold out of them temporarily.
