Artist Model Accordion
I have had the pleasure to service yet
another spectacular accordion. The attention to detail in the woodwork
is as good as I have even seen. I have worked on a few dozen Lira
accordions. This particular instrument is the only one with a double
tone chamber and special-design reed blocks. I believe it was custom
ordered. Similar to other Lira accordions, all reed plates are stamped
with the brand name. The reeds are hand-made and of very high
- Hand made "Lira" reeds with
genuine leather valves
- 4 sets of treble reeds - LM1M2H
- Concert tuned
- DOUBLE TONE CHAMBER (CASSOTTO) - Bassoon (L) and
- 5 sets of bass reeds
- 41 keys, 19.25 " keyboard
- nicely round Lucite white key tops with smooth edges
- 12 treble switches
- Bassoon (L), Clarinet (M1), Organ (LH), Musette
Accordion (LM1M2), Violin (M1M2),
Harmonium (LM1H), Oboe (M1H), Bandoneon
(LM1), Piccolo (H), and two Master (LMMH) switches on
- Palm Master switch (LMMH)
- 140 bass - The first row close
to the bass switches corresponds to minor thirds. Then you have the
classic Stradella order - major third, fundamental, major chord, minor
chord, major seventh, and diminished. You can think of this setup as the
classic 120-bass most of us are familiar with plus added minor third
notes. It is like having 3 rows of free-bass notes. This layout has been
favored by many Serbian accordionists and is standard on the 6-row
- 7 bass switches
- 18-fold large volume bellows - clean - excellent compression
- New Velvet bellows protector
- New shoulder straps
- 27.5 lb
- Very good case
