AM-1100 Jazz

Handmade by the finest craftsmen in the world, the AM-1100 Jazz is designed for the serious Jazz accordionist. Referred to by Frank Marocco himself as “The best accordion I’ve ever played”. The AM-1100 series is simply the finest acoustic accordion being produced today. The sound of two Bassoon reeds in unison is unequaled in an accordion of this quality. The Jazz model includes the petosa Mahogany Mute, making it the ultimate Jazz accordion; extremely powerful, resonant and warm. As with all AM-1100 models, the AM-1100 Jazz is forged from over a century of building the finest accordions in the world. Using only the highest quality materials available and the world’s most distinguished craftsmen, the AM-1100 belongs to a class of its own, setting the standard of excellence in the world. Uniquely and individually handcrafted from the highest quality materials through four generations of craftsmen, no accordion is as powerful in sound nor will endure the test of time like an AM-1100. Now featuring Voci Armoniche's BlueStar® reeds.
