The accordion is very clean. You will immediately
typical Excelsior sound and overtone richness. The tonal
between treble and bass is
perfect. The effect of the Tone Modulator is dramatic. It is like
owning two different accordions - a bright and
projecting one with the modulator in open position and a warm and
mellow one with the modulator closed. The compression is
excellent. The reeds are nicely voiced and air efficient. You are going to love playing this accordion.
made Excelsior Symphony is in excellent condition and ready for a new
home! The tuning allows for performing a versatile repertoire. The
ergonomic design and light weight along with the fascinating Excelsior
sound make this model impossible to reproduce today.

The key tops have yellow tint from aging, typical for 1950-60's Excelsiors. This gives the accordion a nice warm look.
Many classic accordions have yellow/ivory key on purpose (Scandalli Super VI, Sonola SS20, Hohner Gola etc.)

important component of the American-made Excelsior accordions. It remains unmatched in its tonal effect.
