Serial Number 30030
is another classic vintage accordion in very good condition.
It was made in the late 1950s. The body was made from naturally
aged hardwood. The chambers are perfect resonators. The fantastic
hand-made reeds have been voiced and tuned for optimal dynamic
range. The combination of woods and reeds results in an amazing
tonal richness and power. The tone is powerful with both intensity
and overtones. The compression is excellent. The serial number is proudly
engraved or stamped on the back of the accordion, each reed
block, bellows frame, and many metal parts.
The accordion has been recently serviced and is offered with a
full year warranty.
