I've never heard of ZeroSette. How does Zero Sette relates to Bugari?
Today, same accordion, just a different grille.
Yes indeed saundersbp. I will just add a little extra context, forgive me, you know I am a bit daft on the stories and history...
ZeroSette, as we know, means number 7. It was founded in 1945 by seven accordion builders. Over time the company would come to produce some of the greatest accordion models, like the Zero Sette B30, the Giulietti Classic 127, the Petosa AM1100. However in 2007 the company was bought by Bugari Armando. They have been linked ever since. I like very much the tone of certain Zero Sette accordions, though the models I like most are piano accordions and not bayans. Now, Bugari Amando who own ZS, are a fairly modern and vibrant company, they have an increasing presence in China and seem to be the big player there. In 2019 the Bugari story becomes further linked to the growing Asian market, when they were invested in by Tianjin Huayun Ltd. Now, this might be the source of security and continuity for Bugari that my friend Saundersbp refers to (though it is only my guess) because to have great access to the market in China is to have an endless source of potential customers.
