My parents bought my first piano accordion for me when I was just 6 years old. A Gallerini 80 bass. I had weekly lessons for years and passed exams. As I progressed my parents traded-in the Gallerini for a Scandalli 120 bass ‘Scott-Wood Special’ complete with curved keyboard! I still own the Scandalli but haven’t played for many years and I’m afraid it’s now beyond mere TLC and probably worth very little. I’m now in my 74th year and quite fancy having another go, hence my presence on here. I reckon it’s probably like riding a bike and that I’ll soon get the hang of it again. I can still read music but I’m a bit rusty after all these years. So I’m looking for a 120bass accordion and have spotted a Hohner Atlantic IV N De-luxe for sale in Germany not far from where it was made. I have a reasonable budget but ‘cold-feeet’ after all this time away. So I’d welcome your commments and advice and encouragement if appropriate, and look forward to hearing from you. Incidentally I’m not averse to finding a teacher who might be prepared to take me on as a mature pupil.
