Siwa & Figli Schumann Accordion
Special "Olive" Model

This is the latest Siwa & Figli accordion model, designed for strolling musicians who like a more compact and light weight instrument that still features full size keys and hand-made reeds. The weight reduction is achieved by reducing the keyboard range from 41 keys to 37 keys F-F. As a result, the accordion body can be more compact as well. These accordions have unique bass section with 102 buttons. You can think of the standard 96-bass setup with the added D# row on top.

The Schuman models are finished in palisander, rosewood, olive, maple, walnut root etc. They look gorgeous and the tonal quality and ease of handling are equally appealing. All instrument feature hand-made reeds and genuine leather valves. You can order any reed configuration and custom tuning. Many special options are available like wooden Tone Modulator, interchangeable reed blocks, amplification, MIDI, and custom color patterns (keys/buttons/bellows colors).

Here is a summary of the features of this particular accordion:

The M2 reeds are tuned slightly sharp for mild tremolo/swing sound (switches highlighted in blue). The M3 reeds are tuned flat to provide classic Italian musette (switches highlighted in green) . The full spread M2M3 corresponds to classic German musette. The triple MMM musette is suitable for French/German/Slovenian styles (switches highlighted in red). The Bassoon, Clarinet, and Bandoneon remain concert tuned.
This instrument has a great feel and balance. The reeds are made in house and combine the tonal depth of the Siwa bombate reeds with the harmonic richness of the Sabbatini reeds in the middle of the spectral range. The effect is a powerful tone with well blended harmonics. The accordion handles very easy. Play it at the Accordion Gallery side by side with the latest Beltuna Alpstar and Brandoni Classic 37 models and enjoy the distinct feel and tonal character of each brand. I am sure you will find the dream accordion for your needs.

The accordion comes with 3 years warranty, serviced at the Accordion Gallery in Landing, NJ. Call 973-770-6877 with any accordion related questions. I believe I can help.
