Giulietti Patented Bass Machine
This is the first combination bassetti system accordion to use 3 reed blocks with reeds arranged in minor 3rds. Mr. Giulietti made a small number of these with the cutaway configuration to be fitted on to existing largebody instruments. This one has the number 4 etched inside.
The bassetti buttons are larger than the standard stradella buttons. This assists in orienting the hand.
The design and workmanship in this bass machine are some of the finest I have ever seen. The system plays very easily and the response is amazing.
This instrument is in superb condition. It shows very minor signs of use over its almost 50 years, but it has great compression and outstanding responsiveness throughout the range. Tonally, this instrument is extraordinarily clear and precise.
