ACCTONE (Serenellini) Cassotto Musette Accordion
Limex MIDI and Microphones
is a gently used top-of-the-line Acctone accordion made in
by Serenellini. The
instrument was imported by Accordion Connections, now part of the New
England Accordion Connections & Museum Company. This full size
professional instrument features 4/5 setts of hand-made reeds with LMMM
reed configuration, double tone chamber, and ergonomic design. The acoustic accordion is
complemented by Limex MIDI with electromagnetic sensors and
condenser microphones. Combining the acoustic
and electronic features would cover any repertoire from classical to
jazz to ethnic music. Please,
see the specifications and pictures below for more details.
Here is a summary of the features:
- Made in Italy by Serenellini
- Beautiful Swarovski crystals decoration on the brand name and the grill
- Hand Made BINCI Reeds
- 4 treble sets of reeds - LM1M2M3
tuned with M2/M3
sets to -/+ 16 cents allowing for Italian, German (Alpine), and French
(LM1), Organ (LM3), Harmonium (LM1M3), Accordion (LM2M3), Master (LMMM), Musette (MMM),
Celeste (M2M3), Oboe (M1M3), Clarinet (M1),
and Flute (M3).
highlighted in red correspond to Italian musette. The switches
highlighted in blue correspond to French musette sounds. The
highlighted in green correspond to German (Alpine) musette.
The remaining switches have no tremolo effect. The Bassoon, Clarinet,
and Bandonion are concert tuned.
This is a very versatile accordion that can be used for a
wide variety of music.
Looking at the names of the switches I can speculate that the
instrument was originally ordered with interchangeable M2H
reeds that could be mounted out of the chamber instead of the M2M3
reeds and convert the accordion to a concert LMMH instrument, therefore
the names like Organ, Harmonium, and Oboe. The circles with dots
representing the reed combinations properly reflect the current LMMM
reed configuration of the accordion.
