Re: Scandalli ladies' size accordion worthy?

So Soulsaver you mean his accordion might be made in China? The owner didn't know when and where it was made, but I definitely trust Italian craft skill at that time more. Thanks again. :) Eh? I'm saying this accordion is definitely NOT made in China. Indeed maybe no Scandalli has been made in Chin...

Re: Scandalli ladies' size accordion worthy?

I`m not sure about accordion prices down under but $1000 Aud sounds high , even though the Scandalli name plate can command a bit more. However this one is pretty old (60+ yrs) and you have to assume the wax and valves are dried out with a good possibility that the accordion could be soon due for s...

Re: Scandalli ladies' size accordion worthy?

Hi Acon - Yep, the reeds are smaller but not a lot, you won't find it an unacceptable difference. I have a 1950s ladies Hohner in my collection and it sounds really great, lovely tone.

Re: Are my playing days over?

Shoulder injuries are tricky to self diagnose/treat - some require rest, some exercise, and maybe some of the latter, different exercise than others.
Easy in the UK, self refer to NHS physiotherapist via your GP's surgery & pray you get a good one - or research to find a good private one & pay....
