American Made BELL 4516 Accordion

Dear Accordion Friends,

It is time to get excited again. This is a beautifully restored classic vintage American-made BELL 4516 accordion. This instrument is very similar to the early 1950's Scandalli Super VI (recently referred to as "4S" model because of the grill ornaments). According to Aldo Mncaccini, the founder of Bell Accordions USA and the designer of this magnificent instrument, many features of the Bell 4516 were implemented in the early Super VI design. It is very difficult to find a 24-lb full size professional tone chamber accordion that has the big rich sound and playability as this Bell. The accordion features hand-made Binci reeds, resonant reed blocks, and a single-piece mahogany tone chamber. The accordion has been professionally serviced and is ready for decades of inspiring performance.

The accordion is very clean. The compression is excellent. The reeds are air efficient. Playing this instrument is a treat for the performer. 
This fine BELL 4516 accordion is ready for a new home and is offered with a full year warranty. I am sure someone will absolutely love this instrument.
