This is a
instrument with 3/5 sets of reeds and all of the
desirable features like mahogany body, double tone chamber
single piece solid mahogany, tone modulator, full size
keyboard etc. (see the
specifications below for details). A rare feature (available
only on the 1950-60s SS series Sonola, 1950's Hohner Morino,
and some S. Soprani accordions is the extended resonator space under
the keyboard (see the interior photographs below). Sonola catalogs
refer to this as "resovox" chamber. The tone of this instrument is
powerful and resembles Sonola SS6 and Morbidoni made accordions
(Morbidoni, Lo Duca).
If you like the Sonola SS20 or Lo Duca Duke 13 but prefer lighter weight instrument this Crown accordion could be perfect for you. It is about 2-3 lb lighter and has very similar tonal character. The sound is rich and powerful and could be even bold if you decide to pull the bellows stronger - lots of harmonics, deep bassoon and clarinet, clear far-projecting piccolo. The accordion has been recently serviced and is offered with one year warranty.
Call 973-770-6877 with any questions, for a phone demo, or to schedule a visit to the Accordion Gallery to play this instrument and compare it to many other fine professionally serviced and new accordions.
