    I have a gig coming up June 12 of this year. It’s a Bday thing at someone’s house. Band is a guitar/Sax quartet with upright bass and drums.
    I’m trying to find out if there is a pedal out there that simulates an accordion? I’ve done some searching but so far no luck.
    Don’t know if I should’ve posted this in another forum about pedals and effects or not.
    Client has requested a tango, specifically this one from the movie Shall We Dance? I hope the link works.

    Hey, welcome back.

    A pedal that sounds like an accordion? I have no idea, but I'm sure the TDPRI collective will rise to the challenge :D

    I fear there will be more jokes than help. The only thing that comes to mind is a midi rig.
    Maybe you can get a player to prerecord that part for you.

    fishman triple play is under $250. No personal experience with guitar synth but looks cool.

    Look into the Electroharmonix B9 and C9 pedals. They have a variety of keyboard sounds. I have the B9, it takes some practice, but it works prety good for some things.

    Doh! I’m such a dunce. I was going through a bunch of old stored gear that I haven’t touched in a while and came across my old Roland GR-20 guitar synth. Turns out that in the piano bank, patch 33 is accordion. I also found a patch for harmonica in the organ bank (#12). So I answered my own question by dumb luck, and I even own the rig to use it. I haven’t actually tested the GR-20 to see if the accordion and harmonic patches are worth a hoot, but if they’re even in the ballpark I’m confident that with some tweaking I’ll be able to pull it off and make them sound close enough to use at the gig. I’ll report on their believability after I’ve tested it out. Thx for all the support and ideas.

    Welcome back from down here at the beach. Not too far away. I’ve used the Roland synth as well for keyboard patches. That should be able to do the job in a pinch. Most of the lines in that tango sound like single note fills and not a lot of chordal work. Best of luck!
