Thread Name: Need an Accordion for Kenya
Subject: RE: Need an Accordion for Kenya
The main problem with the heat would be storage. The wax holding the reed blocks would probably survive temps of 30-35 deg C without too much problem. The problem about leaving the accordion in the car in the heat is that temps can quickly rise inside the car to well over 60 Deg C, which may be approaching the damage point.

The other problem about leaving an accordion on the back seat of a car happened to me. I left the car for only a few minutes, and when I rushed back, someone had broken the rear window and thrown two more accordions on the back seat...
