Super Star) Professional Accordion
with condenser microphones
is a Borsini Super Star accordion made for BELL in 2004 and one of the
last professional Super Star models that Aldo Mencaccini personally
serviced before his retirement in 2006. Aldo founded BELL accordions and
was the owner of the company till 2006. He meticulously checked each
accordion he imported. The Bell instruments he made himself in the 1950s
in New York remain to this day among the most desired instruments for
their ergonomics and tonal richness. Over the years Aldo had Bell
accordions made by other companies in Italy like Scandalli, Sonola,
Bugari, and Borsini. In all cases Aldo kept the specifications tight and
made sure the quality was consistent.
accordions have a distinct sound -
rich, happy, ringing. The instruments are very well designed and are a
pleasure to play. The Super Star is Borsini's most popular model among
professional musicians. It features hand-made reeds, double tone
chamber, elegant classic body, and flawless mechanics throughout. The
instrument presented here has condenser microphones. This
is a one-owner accordion.
