Garmon shuyskaya

Shuyskaya Garmon (Шуйская Гармонь)

The Garmon (Гармонь), also Hromka (Хромка), Tula (Тула), Garmoshka (Гармошка), Garmonika (Гармоника) is a class of Russian diatonic button accordions that is unisonoric, and mostly limited to a diatonic scale. The layout of the right-hand buttons is such that the diatonic scale is played by alternating rows top to bottom. A few useful accidentals are often included at the top of the keyboard. The two outer rows of the left-hand are in a bass-chord arrangement, with a combination of major and minor chords that fit in with the major and relative harmonic minor key of the instrument. The innermost row of buttons are free-bass notes for the entire diatonic scale.
