Definition: A musical instrument that is held between your hands, consisting of a bellows, two sets of reeds, a keyboard for the melody, and buttons for bass notes and chords. While playing the keyboard and buttons with your fingers, the bellows are pushed open and closed. They pump air through one set of reeds when being opened and through the second set of reeds when being closed to make the sound.
