Re: Soprani bass coupler question

I you were in the US I would send you parts. Unfortunately postage to send you parts will be 10 times the value of the parts.

Re: Sticky bass button

I see you have read -- http://www.accordionrevival.com/ACCORDION_REPAIR_2.php#Disassembling_a_bass_machine-- But if you do not replace the pistons on the same original order - well read paragraphs 29 to 32 -- your in trouble.
