Re: Antonio Silvagni - 34 keys, 52 buttons

Hi Chris, Welcome to the forum. I'm a newbie here too but I know that you won't get any answers without a photo or 2, and you won't get a valuation because it's so subjective, reliant on condition and that's not really what this forum is about. If you think your accordion is "worth while" do the ren...

Re: A Paolo Soprani or not?

Thanks Soulsaver at least I know where to get the missing 'I' from. The only marks I can see are the stamped corner lines, mostly single but some triple, on the reed plates. I think the grille fits just too perfectly for it not to be the original, but what do I know? The grille on your Scandalli loo...

Re: Old newbie from sunny Cleethorpes

Thanks to Happy girl, TomBR, JerryPH and Soulsaver for your welcomes and please forgive the tardy reply, I took delivery of a new (refurb) laptop yesterday and I forgot what a nightmare they are to set up especially those that have been made since the turn of the century! The only one I have a pictu...

Re: A Paolo Soprani or not?

Thanks to Jim D and Geronimo for your replies. I know I'm not too smart with these things so if someone can tell me how to attach photos I will. I have checked out the google images and others I can find on the net. Unfortunately, the innards are a bit of a mess - most of the leathers are shot, some...

A Paolo Soprani or not?

I have a 41/120 piano accordion with the name PAOLO SOPRAN embossed vertically down the grille from the keyboard and round to the treble box. Sorry I don't know how to attach a photo. I have trawled through hundreds of photos of Paolos but have not seen another with the name perpendicular to the key...

Old newbie from sunny Cleethorpes

Hello, I have come to accordions late in life and, without boring you, they found me rather than the other way round. I am a total novice but keen to start playing as soon as I repair one of the 3 old wrecks I have acquired (I'm a sucker I know but they are so beautiful!)
All the best.
Percy
