Siwa & Figli Schumann Accordion
Special "Olive" Model
is the latest Siwa & Figli accordion model, designed for
musicians who like a more compact and light weight instrument that
still features full size keys and hand-made reeds. The weight
reduction is achieved by reducing the keyboard range from 41 keys to 37
keys F-F. As a result, the accordion body can be more compact as well.
These accordions have unique bass section with 102 buttons. You can
think of the standard 96-bass setup with the added D# row on top.
The Schuman models are finished in palisander, rosewood, olive, maple,
walnut root etc.
They look gorgeous and the tonal quality and ease of handling are
equally appealing. All instrument feature hand-made reeds and genuine
leather valves. You can order any reed configuration and custom tuning.
Many special options are available like wooden Tone Modulator,
interchangeable reed blocks, amplification, MIDI, and custom color
patterns (keys/buttons/bellows colors).
Here is a summary of the features of this particular accordion:
- Gorgeous olive wood exterior with matching brown chromatic (flats/sharps) keys and switches
- Excellent hand made reeds
- 4 sets of treble reeds LM1M2M3
- Beautiful and clever "asymmetric" musette tuning allowing for
Swing, Italian, German, and French musette sounds on the same
- 13 different treble
switches allow for a variety of sounds: Bassoon (L), Bandoneon (LM1), Accordion (LM1M2), Sax (LM2), Harmonium (LM1M3), Sax II (LM3), Master (LMMM), Musette (MMM), Violin (M1M2), Violin II (M1M3), Polka (M2M3), Clarinet (M1), and Sopran (M2)
The M2 reeds are tuned slightly sharp for mild tremolo/swing sound (switches highlighted in blue). The M3 reeds are tuned flat to provide classic Italian musette (switches highlighted in green) . The full spread M2M3 corresponds to classic German musette. The triple MMM musette is suitable for French/German/Slovenian styles (switches highlighted in red). The Bassoon, Clarinet, and Bandoneon remain concert tuned.
instrument has a great feel and balance. The reeds are made in house
and combine the tonal depth of the Siwa bombate reeds with the harmonic
richness of the Sabbatini reeds in the middle of the spectral range.
The effect is a powerful tone with well blended harmonics. The
accordion handles very easy. Play it at the Accordion Gallery side by
