Accordion stradella bass machine, five year guarantee in 1935…and it still works. Picture taken inside a Boselli 41/120 piano accordion.
Four voice Hohner 1055 musette piano accordion, with keyboard rebuild and complete re-valve and tune. Palm coupler on treble side for low/basoon octave reed. Musette here means three middle reeds tuned one slightly flat, one on concert and one slightly sharp, to give a rich ‘musette’ sound. Two voice accordions normally have one reed tuned to concert pitch and another reed tuned slightly sharp (or flat on older accordions).
Short clip here to hear the musette sound:
Hohner Liliput with new bellows.
Eight bass mechanism from early Broadcaster piano accordion
Casali accordion reeds restored and ready to be installed on to reed blocks.
