One of the best MIDI Accordions we have ever had.
SUPERB EXCELSIOR MIDI accordion three voice with CASSOTTO TONE CHAMBER (4 voice standard pictured)
120 Bass 41 keys in excellent condition.
(Please Note the pictures are of the non cassotto model which looks identical and has the same size of body except it has 3 reeds including tone chamber).
This must be the model to have, a full range of proper tabs and switches on the accordion set the midi expander. We provide a brand new pocket size midi expander and that is it. The whole kit fits inside the accordion case along with the accordion and connecting leads.
This accordion allows you to press as many tabs and sounds on the accordion as you want at the same time. Most MIDI accordions allow one sound per section (treble, bass and chords) while this one allows you to genuinely layer sounds to create a really full sound. We think the system is unbeatable and is certainly our favourite to play. The accordion has an excellent touch keyboard with the reeds available in any combination (14 possible).
Incredibly easy to use just press the buttons or turn the volume knobs - that is it - can’t go wrong really. This model encompasses simplicity with extreme controllability e.g. rotary controls for sustain, volume etc.
Brand new MIDI expander included.
