Rare Baldoni Bartoli button accordion in D/C#. This is a 6 voice instrument LMMMMH with a coupler to control the LH reeds. This is a well used box and shows considerable ‘mileage’. The case is sound and sturdy. The bellows have been replaced sometime recently and show almost no signs of wear and are air tight. The new bellows are slightly taller than the original so the bellows locks only snap to their keeper snaps. A different style ‘spring loaded’ locks may solve this. It has a lovely keyboard cover decorated with Irish and American flags, a harp and floral design. Weight is 10 pounds. Comes with single shoulder strap.
I have gone through all the reeds and brought the tremolo gradation to a more consistent state. This has a full and powerful sound as it was designed to compete with other band instruments before amplification was commonplace. The 4 bass buttons are configured with D push A pull on one pair and D push and G pull on the other. Rare chance to own an instrument from the 1940’s or ’50’s.
