Stereo Classic Cassotto Accordion
The Stradavox Stereo Classic
accordion was designed to be a match for the famous Hohner Gola. Only the
best materials were used. This instrument is a dream for concert and jazz
accordionists. The reeds are very responsive and air efficient. In
addition, they are all mounted in cassotto. There are two tone chambers
made of mahogany. Each of them holds two reed blocks. This results in a
powerful rich tone with impressive dynamic range. The factory installed
stereo microphones work very well. This instrument looks classy and feels and
sounds great. It has been serviced at the Accordion Gallery and
is offered with our comprehensive one-year warranty. You will receive a
clean accordion with excellent mechanics and compression, concert tuned,
and with new straps and back-pad. Please, note that some of the gold
plating has faded as shown in the pictures below.

The accordion has that mature rich sound you would expect from one of
the best made instruments from the "Golden Age". Solid aged mahogany has
been used for the body of the accordion, the tone chamber, and the reed
blocks, similar to the top models Zero Sette made accordions like Zero
Sette B30 and Petosa AM1100.
