- Excellent condition, very tight bellows compression, all reeds working and superb speech and tuning throughout.

- The instrument has been very well cared for, had light home use only, never gigged and always stored correctly.

Includes quality leather straps, back strap, back pad, hard case and soft gig bag.

Congratulations on making the switch to CBA to the point you can now sell you PA. The Bugari is a very good accordion. I would not hesitate to buy it had I not made the switch from PA to CBA myself about 12 years ago (and still learning...)

Thanks very much Paul. Yes I'm really enjoying the new organisation of notes on a Chromatic accordion. I play the piano already and a piano keyboard rotated by 90 degrees always felt a bit awkward!

That Bugari is an oldie but goodie. It still has real leather valves with metal booster springs for the lower notes. Later Bugari started using synthetic leather valves with plastic boosters, which are faster to glue to the reed plates (making assembly in the factory faster and thus cheaper) but which start sagging after years of storing the accordion on its feet. So your Bugari will stay good for longer than newer ones.

Thanks very much for all that detailed information. Accordion now sold to a great player who I know will make good use of it.
