Settimio Severi accordion
#1
Hello, 

I have recently inherited a Settimio Severi accordion from the '60s (32 basses and 25 keys).
I am already playing an accordion from the '40s I have inherited too.

I was wondering if it was a good idea to restore it and play it too. It works reasonably well.
Have you got any advice?

Bye
Lola

Hi Lola,

That's really a personal decision. I think that all accordions do much better when there is air blown through them. You say that it works "reasonably well" so, if you are not going to damage it more, go ahead and play it. If you mean that it's out of tune, and you are playing by and for yourself, so what. It doesn't matter. If this accordion is a family heirloom or has great sentimental value, restoring it to pristine may cost more than it's worth, however, in such a case, it's still worth restoring...and playing.
