Help in identification please

Post by ely333 » Sat Feb 03, 2018 7:04 pm

Would anyone know what model this is:
Frontalini accordion 41 key 120 Bass 7 voice
All it has etched into it is "Made in Italy Num 109/25"
I can't find a pic or listing for the same kind anywhere.
Thanks for your help in advance.

You have a Late 30's early 40's Frontalini accordion made in Italy. It was made for import to a US music dealer. Depending on the dealer, these were made to US spec's and the model badge's varied.
Most all were of mediocre quality with machine made reeds.

Oh;
I forgot to mention- these 30 to 40's old boxes in good shape are quite loud in volume and sought after by ethnic accordionist's
