Custom made SEM 502-D Gold Accordion
with Original 1960s Scandalli Super VI Concert Reeds

This is one of the last original SEM acoustic accordions. Now SEM is part of the Suoni company along with Menghini, Scandalli, and Paolo Soprani. The trend is to keep the name for reedless accordions, most likely to avoid eroding the price of the Scandalli Super VI that is practically the same instrument today but sells for a lot more. While SEM was still an independent entity they produced high quality instruments for other companies like Iorio, Concerto, Imperial, Pietro, etc. The accordion I am presenting here is a special custom order. It features 4/5 sets of hand made original 1960s Scandalli concert reeds, the same reeds used exclusively in the Super VI models. The accordion is made of mahogany and has a single piece mahogany tone chamber. All reed valves are made of genuine leather. The metal parts throughout (even the internal brackets) have been gold plated. The mechanics is flawless. The accordion is in tune, set to 441 Hz with only a few cents added to the out-of-chamber clarinet reeds for a lovely violin sound. The reeds play easy and deliver a rich and full tone. The balance is perfect. State of the art Sennheiser condenser microphones complement the acoustic instrument. Included is a matching quality hard case with internal padding and protective cover for the keyboard. This is another special instrument we are happy to offer with the exclusive Accordion Gallery warranty

This spectacular showroom model comes with 2 years warranty. It feels great, sounds fantastic, and looks impressive. We invite you to the Accordion Gallery to experience the effect of merging the best from the Golden Age reed making and the modern art of accordion manufacturing. Where else can you try this fine instrument with new hand-made reeds side by side with the same accordion with 1960s Super VI reeds? If this is not already a tempting offer, consider the opportunity to play two new Scandalli Super VI accordions - one with the new Binci reeds and the other one with the 1960s concert reeds. Last but not least, indulge yourself by performing on an M-series late 1950's Super VI with the same reeds featured in the SEM accordion offered here. I am sure you will bring these reeds home!

Please, note the quality throughout - a single piece mahogany tone chamber,
gold-plated hardware including the reed blocks brackets, perfect finish...

This accordion has original 1960s Scandalli Super VI Concert Reeds with the original genuine leather reed valves!
