Made in the USA, this Excelsior is an exceptional instrument due to both its history and impeccable condition. The sound is pure Excelsior, rich and distinct. The Excelsior 'Tone Modulator' (grille mute) offers the player a full and harmonically rich sound when open or a warm and mellow sound when closed. The accordion was sold by petosa to its 2nd owner in 1962. The instrument has been very well taken care of and includes original amplification and original hardcase.
