Dallape supermaestro (1856)
#1
I’ve been finding clips featuring the Dallape Supermaestro: nice rich sound!
Here’s an example ( bear with it as several different genres are exemplified Smile
(BTW, that should be 1956, not 1856)

Perhaps this genre may be more appealing?

There is nothing wrong with Dallapé accordions, they do have a wonderful sound, but you know how some cars are vaunted above others when there is in actuality not all that much that really separates them from their competition? I feel this is the Dallapé issue… a really good accordion, and a well known company, but that they never did anything that truly set them apart from the others in their day.

To date, I’ve probably played 15 accordions. I’ve probably played 6000 pianos, so this is a whole new wonderful world.  I like the sound of that Dallapé, and even the kind of Nash Rambler look.
I would love to see what kind of Music it inspires.
Accordion Gallery has one for sale for $4800. Quite beautiful.

This type of accordion seems to have a very nice L register. The rest is fine but not very different from other quality instruments. The clips seems to be from people trying to sell one of these accordions rather than perform wonderful music on them.

You’re right about the advertising efforts but, other than Serbian traditional music there seems to be little else on YouTube, sorry  Undecided

Factoid:
Before Dallape closed, Roland took sound samples and used them in their Special Edition FR8X

They've been installed on mine since day 1 of my purchase, and I have gone through them all.  I am kind of neutral as to how I feel about their sound:

They do make the basis of some interesting variations if you start with them and modify them to sound different.
