Solid Walnut Keyboard
As the only modern accordion with a handmade solid-walnut keyboard, the AM-1100 takes the best from the 'Golden Era' of American production and embodies the best of tradition and combines state-of-the-art, contemporary materials and mechanics. The solid walnut fulcrum, as opposed to the industry standard brass (metal on metal), reduces friction and improves action and longevity. The walnut keyboard bed and felted guides create a silky smooth and responsive touch. The solid, hand forged aluminum key arms, waxed wood valves, dense felt & leather pads and lucite key tops result in the most efficient, precise and long-lasting keyboard ever produced.
