Selected MIDI Accordions
Super Quattro Artist was
inspired by some legendary accordions like the 1960's Scandalli
Super VI and the 1980's Guerrini President as well as 60 years of
experience of Ivan Stanojlovic at Siwa & Figli and Guenadiy
Lazarov at Accordion Gallery.
The 6-row B-system chromatic model sets the quality standard
for the new chromatic Balkan accordions made today. If you play this
type of instrument we invite you to the Accordion Gallery to try one of
these special accordions. Chances are you will bring it home with
Siwa & Figli Super Quattro Chromatic Accordion

is a recognized talented musician, performing wide range of repertoire
spanning from jazz (Hammond B3 organ and piano) to polka and
fusion (accordion). He has been an Accordion Gallery friend and
customer for years. Recently I had the pleasure to work with Ron and
Siwa & Figli on the design of a custom-made
accordion suitable for all different polka styles from Slovenian
to Cleveland. The challenge was to select the right reed configuration
and tuning while keeping the instrument compact and ergonomic.
In Ron's words
Siwa Schumann custom made for me with the help of Guenadiy and the
Accordion Gallery captures everything I was looking for in a musette
instrument. The accordion is custom designed from the ground up
with a reed configuration of MMMM. The appearance, tuning, size,
and midi capabilities are as good, if not better than anyone can expect
out of a high end accordion in a compact design. The custom
musette tuning was exactly as I asked, and Guenadiy was more than happy
to help map out for me. The Schumann, on top of it being a power
house instrument, has the bonus of wireless midi built in. The
setup allows me to not only run built in sounds from the internal sound
card, but gives me the ability to WIRELESSLY run Mainstage at virtually
no latency. With a series of volume pedals, I'm able to mix my
acoustic accordion with not only multiple bass setups, but combine
those options with various synths all in real time and
again,... all wirelessly!
Thank you Siwa and Guenadiy!!
