Dallape ORGANETTE Custom Made Accordion

Dear Accordion Friends,

This is a rare custom made accordion. It was made around 1950 while Giovanni Gola was still at Dallape. The expert touch of the legendary master can be found throughout this spectacular instrument. The body was made from naturally aged hardwood. The fantastic hand-made reeds have intrinsic overtones that are beautifully enhanced by the resonant reed blocks and accordion body. This elegant and ergonomic 19.5-lb instrument is so efficient that you will be able to dance with it. The accordion has been professionally serviced and is ready to charm with its rich tone:

- New bellows
- New bellows straps
- New bellows protector
- New bass strap
- New shoulder straps
- Keyboard serviced and action optimized
- Voiced and tuned
- New case

I don't know of another 3-reed tone chamber accordion that would be so light and well balanced. The chambered bassoon sound is deeper and stronger than on many new 4/5 reed cassotto accordions that sell in the $12000-15000 price range! The accordion is clean, has great compression and plays easy. The serial number is proudly engraved or stamped on the back of the accordion, each reed block, bellows frame, and many metal parts.
It is very difficult to fins a stroller size accordion built to the quality standard of the best full size professional instrument. The Dallape sound will keep you inspired to play more and to expand your repertoire. The accordion have been professionally restored with love and patience. It is in very good condition, very clean and ready for another 60 years of happy memories. It is offered with a full year warranty.

The key tops and treble switches have ivory finish and look beautiful.
