BELL Super Star (Borsini) Cassotto Amplified Accordion
professional BELL accordion is a rare model, built by Borsini for
Aldo Mencaccini, the founder and owner of BELL Accordions till 2006.
This unique instrument was built to the highest quality standard of
Super Star models. This BELL was ergonomically optimized with a very
slim body design and 3/4 sets of reeds. The bassoon and clarinet
reeds a tone chamber with a second set of clarinet reeds out of the
chamber like in the Sonola SS6 model. This way we have the perfect
instrument for a jazz accordionist who would love the added
versatility of Italian musette sounds. The accordion is very
efficient and has full rich tone. The depth of the bass reeds is
is a summary of the features.
