Brandoni KingLine Cassotto Model W-148 Gold Edition

Brandoni & Sons is a highly respected accordion manufacturer. The company has kept consistently high quality over the years. The special "Wood Collection" has been optimized for tonal quality and appearance. The KingLine series features hand-made reeds and tone chamber with the finest mechanics available from Italy. We welcome any questions and would be happy to invite you to the Accordion Gallery to play this instrument in person and compare it to our many other fine accordions. Each well built accordion has some unique personality. It is not easy to explain the overall impression created by the mechanical feel, tonal quality and balance, tuning, and visual appeal. This Brandoni responds instantaneously, both mechanically and acoustically. The open grill allows for an excellent projection. The out-of-chamber clarinet reeds (M2) are tuned slightly sharp for a nice American swing sound when combined with the chambered clarinet reeds. All of the 15 treble switches offer different sounds suitable for a variety of music. You can enjoy concert (dry) sounds like bassoon, clarinet, bandonion, harmonium, organ as well as mild tremolo (swing) sounds in the violin, musette, and accordion switches. According to the Brandoni catalog the weight is 11.6 kg. This particular instrument weighs about 12 kg or 26.5 lb  with the padded straps and bellows protector. It is very well balanced and with excellent compression and highly efficient reeds, therefore very easy to handle.

We are pleased to offer you the following (optional) original Brandoni interchangeable reed blocks:

- Additional set of Artigiana Voci professional hand-made musette tuned M2M3 reeds (-15 cents / +15 cents) - in 5 minutes the instrument can be transformed to a full musette LMMM accordion featuring Italian and French musette. These out-of-chamber M2M3 reed blocks will replace the M2H blocks in the accordion.

- Additional set of Artigiana Voci professional hand-made LM reeds. These out-of-chamber LM reed blocks will replace the M2H blocks in the accordion and transform it to a dream jazz instrument with LLMM reed configuration. Custom tuning is available allowing you to have a dry double-bassoon LL and a swing or musette MM sound with all other possible reed combinations.

- Additional set of Artigiana Voci professional hand-made swing/polka tuned M2M3 reeds (-8 cents / +8 cents). With these reed blocks the accordions becomes unique custom-tuned instrument for swing, polka, gypsy musette, and Italian authentic sounds. As far as I know there is only one accordion that was offered with a similar tuning, the Lo Duca Twlighter, very rare and difficult to find. These out-of-chamber M2M3 reed blocks will replace the M2H blocks in the accordion.

The additional reed blocks come in original Brandoni lather suitcase(s). This is the ultimate dealer demo accordion. You can order it with any particular reed configuration, get additional interchangeable reed blocks, or buy the entire set of 4 accordions in one.

Add $1200 per set of additional reeds, $2000 for two additional sets, or $$2600 for all 3 sets of additional interchangeable reed blocks. As far as I know this is the best deal ever on such a complete package. Alternatively, select any reed configuration you prefer at the listed price.

This accordion will help you play better. You will be proud to own a rare collectible instrument with beautiful tone and increasing value.
