Sonola 120 bass compact accordion (repair project)
A very good quality 1960s Italian made accordion which is playable but requires some work to bring it back to it’s best. It has 120 bass/chord buttons, 41 piano keys (17 inch keyboard – a full size accordion is around 19 inches) Three sets ov treble reeds.
All the reeds are playing but will benefit from some tuning, especially the right hand middle pitch reeds M + M+. The bass & chord reeds are pretty good for the age of the accordion. Most of the leather reed valves are in good working order & lying flat against the reed plates. Ideally all reeds would be rewaxed & revalved but this could be done at a later date if required. 1 x metal bellow corner is missing (not leaking air) The bass coupler is not working properly, a full repair for this would mean removing the bass action for access, but a temporary easy repair can be made to the mechanism near the bass reed blocks. There is a piece of decorative plastic moulding missing from around the treble registers. Some ‘Sonola’ name letters missing.
Comes with case (a bit tatty) & padded shoulder straps.
FREE UK mainland delivery.
We would advise that you need some experience in accordion repair before attempting something of this quality.
