offers a wide range of new and used piano accordions in various
brand names and colors.
Our own ITALO-AMERICAN models, from yesterday and today, continue
to please. And, why not?
ITALO-AMERICAN accordions have always been state of the art in
design and performance. New accordions are constructed of top
quality materials in Castelfidardo, Italy and are carefully inspected
by our own accordion technicians before sale. Second-hand models
go through a meticulous inspection and are often times refurbished
with original materials in the fine tradition of the old craftsmen.
Whatever you decide, new or pre-owned, you will be glad you chose
ITALO-AMERICAN ACCORDION MANUFACTURING COMPANY!
The ITALO-AMERICAN ACCORDION
has what you need!
come in all sorts. The ones who have been playing for a while
have, most likely, honed themselves into a specific niche.
They know exactly what they want in an accordion from their
various experiences. We’ve talked to thousands of accordion-playing
customers who could remember the particular way an old POLYTONE
sounded when they played it forty-five years ago, and now
they want an accordion the SAME WAY! Others accordion players
have been away from the instrument for a while, and now, perhaps
with a little more time on their hands, want to rekindle that
love for the accordion by taking it up again. Still others
are just plain curious and want to learn what the accordion
is all about, but don’t want to break the bank in doing
so. All of these accordionists need something different. That’s
not even factoring in what their personal tastes are: what
kinds of music they enjoy listening to, what kinds of music
they enjoy playing, whether they want plain vanilla or glam.
With such a seemingly endless array of accordionists and their
respective personalities, our 90+ years of experience certainly
comes in handy.
Here, at the ITALO-AMERICAN ACCORDION MANUFACTURING COMPANY,
we have the accordion that FITS YOUR LIFESTYLE!
So, what kind of accordion player
are you, and what kind of accordion is best for you?
Here is a (very) general breakdown that may help you decide.
Our first category is aimed at those
novice accordionists, or those of you that are just getting started.
Buying your first accordion can be overwhelming. Almost anyone who
has ever touched, heard, or seen an accordion probably has an opinion.
Various “experts” can provide you with some good information,
but they can confuse you as well. ITALO-AMERICAN will do its best
to explain your options clearly. The difference in price of two
presumably “identical” accordions may hint towards a
much larger difference in overall quality. But, as a beginner, that
price savings may make more sense to you at this juncture, as you
feel your way into the accordion world. Luckily, the ITALO-AMERICAN
ACCORDION MANUFACTURING COMPANY has a wide array of choices for
you. Assuming you want a piano-style accordion in the $250-$500

accordions in a smaller frame.

| Of course,
if you don’t plan on upgrading in the future, and you
want to start with an accordion that you can trust through the
next decade, but, in the meantime, you don’t want to take
too big a hit in the pocketbook, we also have pre-owned Italian-made
accordions that are perfect for beginners or casual players.
These are normally referred to as “student” accordions,
and they usually feature a full range: 41 piano keys and 120

our pre-owned accordions, ensuring the accordions are in good,
Accordions like this range in price from $200 to $500, depending
on specific condition…
Our second category could be classified
as “intermediate” and is perfect for those looking to
upgrade their beginners’ accordions into something more substantial.
These accordions are and were originally built to hold up to
the standards of the regular accordion player, the amateur musician
that demands performance. Through the discerning eyes and ears
of our seasoned accordion technicians, these accordions have
been refined to meet those specifications.
The price range, usually from $600 to $1500, is indicative of
not only the original craftsmanship and materials, but also
the handiwork that we put into these boxes: that special
seal of approval that pledges satisfaction.
|We have plenty of brands to choose
from, both new and used. As an intermediate player, you know what
type of tuning you like, what kind of action from the keyboard
is necessary, what kind of reed configuration is right for you!
Let us know, so we can direct you to your new accordion!
Another category is aimed
specifically for you “downsizers,” you folks that have
been playing the same accordion for many years, but are starting to
notice that it is getting a little heavier! You want a responsive
accordion that will live up to your talent without having to go on
pain-relief medication. That’s understandable.
