This full size professional accordion was custom built by Borsini for Tonny Dannon and Joe Serrito at a time the accordion was very popular and accordion schools had hundreds of students, a glorious "accordion time", indeed. Luckily for us, some of these spectacular instruments are being passed on infused with history and inspiration. This is the top of the line model with hand-made reeds, designed for jazz performers with light touch walnut keyboard, solid mahogany body, hand-made reeds, and a patented tone modulator for a deep, mellow tone. (The 44-key model is also available at the Accordion Gallery.)
The accordion has been loved and maintained
in great condition over the years.
Below are several links featuring Tonny Dannon and the MODERN accordion. Enjoy.

This accordion features a high-quality wooden tone modulator with excellent efficiency. The switches are mounted over the tone modulator without compromising its integrity. When you close the tone modulator you would bet this accordion has a tone chamber. The aged mahogany body and the excellent hand-made reeds reward the performer and the audience with instant response and deep rich tone.
