This instrument was made in the 1980s and has been tuned, with some re-valving on the right hand.

Very nice Italian made Scandalli piano accordion for sale, second hand. This is a relatively unusual model to find in the UK. it is similar to the Hohner Arietta in size and weight. It has 34 treble keys and is therefore smaller and lighter than a full-sized piano accordion.
Three voices on the RH (low, medium, medium), with three couplers giving the following combinations: L, LMM, MM.
Four voices on the LH, with 48 bass – counter bass, fundamental, major chord, minor chord, in all 12 notes of the scale.
The bass action is particularly light, as is the RH keyboard action.
Hohner Atlantic III piano accordion. Three voice (low reed, and two medium reeds) with 9 couplers (4 are repeats), mute switch, 3 couplers on the 5 voice bass side.
This is a lovely instrument – the 1960s Atlantics were fitted with composite pads (a sandwich of leather and foam attached to the keys and which form an air seal until you operate a key e.g. sound a note), and over time the foam in the pad disintegrates. All the pads on the bass and treble were replaced. The internal condition is good with no valve noise, and the instrument is in tune and sounds great. See the video below.
