This Albrecht melodeon is one of five of this design made in 2013 by the innovative young German accordion maker, Kay Albrecht (see his web site here). It demonstrates a convergence of art and music, with its fabulous appearance and sound quality. The reeds are hand finished and give a rapid response to the player. This instrument has only been played a handful of times and is in mint condition. It has three voices on the treble side and four bass buttons. It comes with a luxury hard case.
Price: £1950 including postage to the mainland UK.

Sold: Hohner Student II piano accordion. Made in Germany. This little accordion has 26 keys and twelve basses, which in practice means bass fundamental and chords in Bb,F,C,G,D,A. Major chords are normal for the Student II, but I removed the major third note for each chord, so they work for major and minor tunes. Please see the video below of the same model of instrument (previously sold from this website) for further explanation and demonstration, T
