Siwa & Figli Super Quattro Compact MIDI Amplified Accordion

This is the top of the line non-chambered Siwa accordion. It features ergonomic design with a compact body and full size professional keyboard. The accordion has been designed for strolling professionals and can be truly appreciated by polka players or musicians who love the open projection of a non-chambered instrument with hand made reeds. This model was endorsed by Alex Meixner and has been featured in many live gigs and recordings. In addition to being a lovely acoustic instrument with perfect mechanics and excellent balance, it has factory installed Hey-di MIDI and Sennheiser condenser microphones.

This accordion has LMMM reed configuration with very special custom tuning. The M2 reeds are tuned 6 cents sharp, resulting in M1M2 violin sound preferred for gypsy jazz and swing (semi-dry) musette as well.
This sound will be perfect for Balkan music as well as Cleveland style polka. The M3 reeds are set at -14 cents. As a result, the performer has access to Italian musette with the M1M3 switch and full German MMM musette, also suitable for Slovenian style polka.

Here is a summary of the features.

The accordion can be played without additional MIDI modules using the hundreds of built-in sounds and effects. However, if the performer desires to use external MIDI module it is possible to use it in addition to the internal sound card. Any MIDI module will work with this state-of-the-art system. The following (optional) MIDI modules/arranges are available for purchase with this accordion:
The accordion looks fabulous. It is offered with three years warranty serviced at the Accordion Gallery. Local support is very important.
The new owner will enjoy a beautiful instrument with smooth mechanics, impressive tonal character, 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.
