ACME is an all-original beautifully crafted American-made
accordion, built in the early 1950's. It is comparable to
the American-made Bell and Excelsior accordions from the same
time period. This particular instrument
has been played with love and respect and was recently serviced at the
Accordion Gallery. The mechanical action is very good. The
excellent. The wooden body and reed blocks have matured nicely and will
reward you with a resonant sound, rich with depth, brilliance,
- Hand-finished reeds
- 4 treble sets
of reeds - LMMH - dry tuning
- 5 sets
of bass reeds
- 41 keys, 19.25" keyboard, "ivory" key tops, excellent
valves and action
- 10 treble switches: Bassoon (L), Accordion (LMM), Harmonium
(LMH), Melodion (LM), Organ (LH), Oboe (MH), Musette (MMH), Violin
(MM), Clarinet (M), and Piccolo (H)
is one of the cleanest 1950s accordions I've seen. It is air
efficient and responsive and feels very comfortable to play
for hours without fatigue. If
you need a light weight full size professional accordion that will be
reliable for many years this is a good opportunity to acquire
it without the
uncertainty of the "pawn shop" style descriptions (and questionable
condition) on eBay.
- Palm Master switch - 11 different treble sounds

- 24 lb - one of the lightest full size professional
accordion I've played
- Clean and air-tight bellows
- Bellows protector
- Good leather bass and shoulder straps
