This full midi Fratelli Crosio Musettina full size accordion is a handsome 41 keys/120 bass instrument from an age of exceptionally high quality construction. The four voice treble tuning could probably be described as ‘french’ and is approximately -18 0 +24 in the middle ranges. The reeds are pinned to leather (no wax). The bass is 5 voice.
Weight: 27 lbs 12.24 Kgs
The treble keyboard is 19.1/8” 485mm long and is level, fast and shallow.
The bellows are in good order and the accordion is air-tight.
The couplers contain a range of wet and dry sounds. The couplers originally contained three duplicated Master couplers. One of those has been altered to play only the treble tuned reeds (the + and -) and this gives an extra sound which is a particularly fast, bright tremolo.
The padded leather straps, bellows and bass are in good condition.
A protective back pad is fitted.
The midi socket is on the bass end and a switch on the treble grille allows the player to step through a pre-set programme on an expander.
A volume control and jack socket remain in place from a previously fitted microphone but are redundant.
Please ask about payment. The accordion could be prepared for shipping, in its own case inside a cardboard box, for collection by the buyers own preferred courier.
The selling price is £1500 or sensible offers.
