Ive recently acquired this Sonola piano accordion, which has rekindled my interest in playing.
I used to play a bit, as a kid, 50 years ago, but drifted away as other instruments came along.
I now love it, and cant put the thing down
Anyway, my real question is, do any of you knowledgeable folk know what model number, or name, this particular Sonola accordion is?
I was told that it originally was bought new from Bell accordions in Surbiton, sometime in the 1970s, but that may not be completely accurate. To me it seems like quite a good instrument, but thats really only basing it on my experience with a 12 bass Bell and an old, and very worn Settimio Soprani, that belonged to my uncle, years ago
It has 3 sets of reeds on the treble side and 2 on the bass side, with 7 couplers on the treble side, and 3 on the bass.
The inside is stamped in various places with the number 26.
Made in Italy is embossed on the casing.
Ive added a link to some higher resolution pictures and would be grateful for any information as to what model this is.
