A superb Italian built chromatic bayan accordion with converter bass left hand. This is an excellent “rare” opportunity to pick up such a high quality accordion at a relatively affordable price. This accordion was hand built by Giulietti in Castelfidardo in Italy and has lovely “soft”, light and responsive mechanics for the left and right hand keyboards. Inside are Italian hand made, A Mano quality reeds (see video below).
The accordion is in good working order and sounds great playing many styles of music. It has a very rich deep bass sound which sounds great playing traditional style accordion music with the standard/stradella bass. The converter bass converts the left hand keyboard to a 58 note free bass keyboard which includes the deep stradella/standard bass notes for the lowest octave and silky warm free bass reeds tuned in unison without tremolo which also provide the sounds for the chord buttons. Equally suited to classical, traditional and many other musical styles.
This instrument would cost upwards of £20000 today and represents an opportunity for the right player to get a full specification instrument at a bargain price.
