Where to find Accordion Specifications
#1
Is there a website or series of websites that list specifications (size, weight, tonal range, typical factory pitch, etc.) for accordions.

For now, I am interested in the following two instruments, but I am interested in lightweight C-system accordions in general.

Thank you.

Manufacturers tend to list some specifications about their current models, but not about older, discontinued models.
There is a list with some basic information about old Hohners but I don't know one for other brands.
Also, the manufacturer specifications are 1) incomplete, like not mentioning the default factory pitch, and 2) unreliable, most notably weight which is almost always underestimated, but sometimes even the number of notes. A good example is the second one you posted: the range of notes is listed as do# to sib and the number of notes as 48. But from do# to sib is really 46 notes...
