In 2009 Siwa &
Figli and the Accordion Gallery introduced a special Accordion Gallery
Line of instruments. Each accordion is absolutely unique. The accordion
body including the grill and the side bass cover is carved from rare
selection of naturally aged woods. The body is
varnished in the tradition of violin making and not covered in
Polyurethane. The results are amazing - enhanced natural wood grain and
improved sound projection. The tonal characteristics are based
on the wood selection and could be jazzy-dark or polka-bright. Each
instrument features the best quality hand made reeds available today,
genuine Italian leather reed valves, double tone chamber, precise
mechanics, and ergonomic body design optimized for best feel and ease
It is extremely difficult to find properly cut and aged wood for making musical instruments. It takes over a year to craft one of these special accordions. Each instrument radiates warmth. The tonal characteristics are as unique as the design and appearance of the accordion - truly fantastic!
After the success of the Super
Yavor 37/96 4/5 model I have been dreaming of playing the
full size Super Quattro made from the same rare acoustic quality
"yavor" growing at high altitude in the Balkans. In June 2012 we
received the first Super Quattro Yavor accordion. The tone of
this instrument is amazing. It delivers a fantastic blend of harmonics.
Close your eyes, play it and enjoy the tonal richness and mechanical
perfection of this accordion...
