Prestige V Amplified MIDI Accordion
is the top of the line Beltuna accordion, fully loaded with features
like hand made reeds, tone chamber, Sennheiser microphones, and
MIDI. This instrument will offer you a variety of sounds
with 5 sets of treble reeds and 5 sets of bass reeds. The reed
configuration is LMMMH. You have LMH with concert tuning and 2
additional sets of clarinet reeds (M2 and M3) with swing/musette
tuning allowing for concert (dry) sounds like bassoon, clarinet,
bandoneon, organ, harmonium as well as a rich selection of swing
and musette sounds when adding M2 (swing) and M3 (musette).
Sennheiser microphones with separate volume control and the
full-featured MIDI with touch sensitive control panel on the grill
complement the acoustic accordion. This feature-packed dream
accordion weighs 28.5 lb. The design of the bass body and the access

very similar to the feel of a 4-reed instrument.
