IORIO (SEM) Musette MIDI Amplified Accordion

This is professional SEM accordion built for Iorio and features 4/5 sets of hand-finished reeds with true musette sound. The acoustic accordion is complemented by modern MIDI with electromagnetic sensors and built-in sound card and condenser microphones. SEM is now part of Scandalli (Suoni). The acoustic instrument is of the same class as the Scandalli Polifonico and the Beltuna Studio IV. This accordion would be great for a polka player or a musician who loves the open projection of non-chambered instrument for French/Italian repertoire. The factory installed MusicTech KING MAJOR MIDI comes with a sound card featuring over a hundred orchestral and accordion sounds, including cassotto samples. Combining the acoustic and electronic features would cover any repertoire from classical to jazz to ethnic music.

Here is a summary of the features.
The following (optional) MIDI modules/arranges are available for purchase with this accordion
The accordion has been serviced at the Accordion Gallery and looks,feels, and sounds great. It is offered with one year warranty. The new owner will enjoy a well built instrument with smooth mechanics, beautiful tone, and very strong sound projection. The MIDI will open a whole new world for orchestration and musical expression. The microphones can be used independent of the MIDI.

You can play this accordion as acoustic instrument without any electronics. With any amplifier you can get the benefit of full orchestration using the built-in sound card and microphones. In case you wish to use an additional external MIDI module all you need to do is connect it to the MIDI OUT port of the power supply.
