Re: Victoria Poeta and other wooden instruments?

Having had my Poeta for a few years I bought a completely different Saltarelle Bourroche. Much smaller and lighter, totally different sounding boxes. Poeta =soft, fluffy, gentle but big, heavy Bourroche = punchy, bright, not nearly as bassy but small and light. I wanted a box I could carry about and...

Perhaps you'd like to upgrade to a lovely Poeta? Or even just add it to your collection? :tup:

Re: Southern England Chromatic Button Accordion Rally 7 October 2017

I'm up for this too. I don't frequent the forums as often as I'd like to but now I know this is on I'll check back more often. I can bring my Saltarelle Bourroche and my Victoria Poeta (which is 'kind of" for sale) for people to have a go on if they want. It's so frustrating not being able to try ne...

Re: Victoria Poeta and other wooden instruments?

Indeed it is that one. I'll be very sad to see it go, but don't really have room for it. Haven't given much thought to how much yet, open to offers really while I think on it. Perhaps I might make a few more vids and stick a for sale sign on the front ha ha

Re: Victoria Poeta and other wooden instruments?

I am thinking of selling my Poeta if anyone is interested. I bought a Saltarelle Bourroche instead as I often play out of the house in pubs and the Poeta was just a bit too bulky. The Bourroche is much lighter and smaller, though it doesn't have anything like the soft fluffy bass of the Poeta and th...

Music Room soft gig bag - 96 bass size For Sale

I'm pretty sure this is a 96 bass sized gig bag, I know I used to carry my 96 in it but I've bought a double cassotto CBA now and it's just a bit too deep to fit this bag. The dimensions are 18 inches wide, 14 inches tall at the front and 16.5 inches tall at the back, 9 inches deep (front to back). ...

Re: For Sale: Pigini 5 row C37 C System CBA free bass conver

I wouldn't say it was ruining it, every time one of you posts something it goes back to the top of the list - but then if you really want to help me out you could buy the Pidge?! hehe

Re: For Sale: Pigini 5 row C37 C System CBA free bass conver

My Poeta is about a day old by my reckoning since they told me they were going to ship it sometime today and it's literally just been finished! I will be the first person to play it - how exciting. It was made in Castelfidardo, Italy. I will post a video as soon as I've got it and the link on here. ...
