BELL Symphony Accordion -  The Flagship of BELL!

Dear Accordion Friends,

There are many nice instruments that can keep us satisfied and inspired. However, once you come across an exceptional quality accordion you know it from the first chord you play! We all deserve to find our ultimate accordion, the accordion we will never part with. Fortunately, we have different preferences and this makes the accordion world as exciting and colorful it is. I have found MY sacred accordion and I know how great it feels to be able to hear that dream sound each time you play. I am sure someone will soon feel the same way about the accordion I am presenting to you now.

This full size professional accordion is a very special instrument of exceptional quality! As the great accordion craftsman Aldo Mencaccini says, these accordions were built to last forever. According to the Bell catalog "The reeds are closely seated on individual duraluminum plates - then mounted on walnut-faced, highly varnished reed blocks. They "speak" immediately upon command - with tremendous carrying power for every subtlety of tone, from the most delicate to the most dynamic. The superlative quality of these reeds and the careful precision fitting of each read plate are a significant part of the reason for the beauty of Bell's tone." The resonant accordion body, in combination with the best reeds and reed blocks results in a powerful rich sound. The reed configuration is LMMH with a dry tuning. There is no tremolo/musette effect. The accordion has been loved and maintained in great condition over the years.

This Bell is a legendary instrument with increasing value. It was the best and most expensive accordion in the Bell line. I have only seen 5 such instruments over the years. All of them have been spectacular. You will recognize immediately the tremendous power and impressive tonal color from the Golden Age. This accordion will be a family treasure for the true accordion lover. 





















The interior of the instrument is pristine. All metal parts are corrosion-resistant.
Valves, reeds, wax, leathers - all in excellent condition.




















Single piece, solid mahogany tone chamber





The original factory tuning holds remarkably well. The reeds have never been touched by power tools.
