is another rare and
exceptional quality accordion - you know
it from the first chord you play!
This very special full size professional
was the best
SANO model. It was built at the time accordions were very popular and
people would obtain financing to buy their dream instrument. At that
time quality was sacred and accordion manufacturers competed to build
the best instrument. The
model features the best hand-made reeds available,
double tone chamber, and some of the best sounding bass section with
low A reed configuration. This is an early 60s model, played and
maintained with respect. You will find it excellent in any aspect -
appearance, mechanics, and acoustic performance.
- 4 treble sets of reeds - LM1M2H
(could be removed without affecting the amplification if the
performer prefers a brighter sound)
- 41 keys, 19-1/4" keyboard -
American walnut keys, key tops with smooth edges - a pleasure to play

for the tone

microphones. The amplification works perfect. You can enjoy the
tone of the crystalline microphones without feedback issues. The knobs

can buy an XLR-to-TRS cable online or convert the XLR pick up on the
accordion to TRS and use a stereo 1/4" jack cable. Alternatively, the
performer may prefer to replace the existing microphones with condenser
microphones and reduce the weight of the instrument by 1 lb.
