Up for sale I have a Crucianelli III, 120 bass piano accordion. It has, 41 treble keys, 3 sets of treble reeds, and is octave tuned (LMM). The treble keyboard measures 18.75" ranging from F to A. It has a wrist coupler, changing between the two clarinet reeds (MM) and three sets of reeds (LMM). It is 5 sets of bass reeds.
The accordion, with its straps weighs 8.9kgs (19.6lbs).
This accordion is in good condition, for its age.
Both treble and bass reeds have been tuned to concert pitch (A = 440Hz). The treble clarinet reeds have been tuned to “swing tuning”, very little vibrato. The accordion is made by Crucianelli, Circa, 1930's, so it is art deco period, pre, second world war. It is a quality instrument, reeds are excellent (no rust) and compression is good. The treble keyboard has a fairly, fast action, but the pallets are a little bit noisy.
It has also been serviced with adjustments, replacements and cosmetic touches made where required. (Some waxing, some valves have been replaced, total re-tune etc.
It also comes with what looks like its original bass strap. I have replaced the shoulder straps with second hand ones. There is no case.
This is a good beginners accordion but I have got to say that it could be doing with a bit of an over hall with in the next ten years, depending on how it is looked after.
I have kept the price of all my accordions to the absolute minimum. Accordions, by nature, are very complex and have an extraordinary amount of moving parts (the bigger they are, the more work is involved) and therefore consume a vast amount of time in an overhaul to bring them up to a high standard of playability. Please bear this in mind when you consider buying one.
My name is Gordon and I am a professional accordion/Melodeon repairer, tuner and MIDI installer for Blue Line MIDI systems.
In addition to the above, I am offering 1 hour’s, free tuition valid for 1 month after the purchase of the accordion.
Unfortunately, I cannot discount from the accordion, the price of the lesson to anyone who cannot take up my offer of the hour’s free lesson.
If you are just looking for tuition, or maybe needing a repair to your accordion or melodeon, just give me a call on the above number, and I am sure I will be able to fit you in. I can convert double octave accordions into musette, or 2 voice, octave tuning into tremolo tuning at a very competitive price.
I teach both piano accordion and chromatic (5Row) C system accordions in many different styles, for all ages. I am now able to provide this service through Skype, so if you live in a remote area, providing you have a reliable internet service,
you can have lessons from the comfort of your home.
I also teach piano and music theory (up to grade 6), keyboards and bass guitar.
I am prepared to post this accordion at buyer’s own expense. I will give a weight of the accordion for postage purpose; where upon the buyer can arrange a courier to pick it up from my premises. I am prepared to pack the accordion free of charge, but I will not be liable for any damage that might occur in transportation. It is up to the individual whether they insure it or not.
Alternately, I can do the courier arrangements and packing for a flat rate of £20, not including insurance.
Sorry, no overseas postage.
Thank you for looking.
