Re: Crucianelli

My morino n and morino d artiste are also really thick, hard for me to get used to. My Victoria and borsini are perfect, day and night in comparison. All are c system 120 bass. Morino does have more buttons

Re: PA with double keyboard

This perhaps is what makes the Italians Italian and many love them for it.

Re: House Brands but made by Italian or other European Makers

Guess it all comes down to the budget and access. The instruments differ just as much within the same brand as between brands And then there're size, age, level of maintenance, etc. Folks like me far away outside the center of the accordion universe with limited budget just have to pray hard when bu...

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

.... at a cost of course :lol: . Only if my wife could be more understanding like some lucky dudes here :? {} I'm sticking to c system for sure now! Slightly off topic, with all the rave reviews of the super 6 and guilietti 127, how do they stand up to the Jupiter/Bugari/Gola? Just love to hear from...

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

"in the end it is not really true that there is a lack of choice, but more that there is a lack of money...". So true :roll: :evil: :hb Yes, indeed. I found the Italians seem to know how to create colorful rich sound with the little reeds. It just never stop amazes me that with so many of these litt...

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

Thank you all again for your insight. I will check out the flips later tonight. I agree that the bayan has the double bass effect that is different from all other. The Italian sounds nicer and sweater. The c system Jupiter is quite expensive to my standard. I have to think hard about it

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

The Jupiter on eBay France seems to have lots of switches on the treble side but only one on the bass side, why is that? Also, Mr. de Bra, what is the main difference between AKKO and Jupiter based on your experience? Can you point to a couple YouTube clips that shows the difference in sound qualiti...

Re: Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

:hb :roll:
Just that the Russian are all B system, Jupiter, akko. They sound so different and interesting, clear strong and powerful. Alas, guess I'll just have to live without it.

Is it possible to play both C system and B system?

I'm with C system for a few years. Interested to know how hard to play the B system. Do you or someone you know play both systems? I remember saw this topic before but couldn't find it here. Thanks for your thoughts and insights :ch

Re: Victoria double tone chamber CBA vs Borsini K10 CBA

Would love to see somebody plays the Jupiter up close. It sounds very impressive in some of the YouTube clips. Morino was designed by Italian but in so many ways, it's different from the Italian ones. May have to do with the local preference?

Re: Victoria double tone chamber CBA vs Borsini K10 CBA

The Victoria is taller and a bit bulkier than Borsini K10, somewhat heavier as well. It's just as well made and feels as solid and smooth. The sound, though dry tuned, is dramatically different from K10. The Victoria sound is indeed velvet and musical while K10 is much more brass like and powerful. ...
