2010 Irish Dancemaster Models and Reed Choices
The 2010 Irish Dancemaster 'Sarasota' has been upgraded w/ super premium reed choices. I have selected several of the best reeds that I feel will outperform the reeds used in most other production accordions. I am here to help my customers make the best choice, both in terms of the style/type of music and budget, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
The Dancemaster Tipo A Mano or 'hand-finished' reed is the top choice of experienced boxplayers worldwide; this particular type of Tipo A Mano reed I use has a pleasant, sweet tone, excellent volume, and best of all, an exceptionally fast response. The benefit to the experienced player is that it can easily handle the most complex ornamentation played at high speed, and for the beginner player whose technique is a bit sloppy it is a very forgiving reed. The Tipo A Mano is made of aircraft grade aluminum frame and steel tongue.
For the serious professional level player requiring the most responsive reed that is also most durable, I offer the A Mano 'hand-made' reeds in standard and 'bombate' versions, both made with the highest-grade steel tongue designed for maximum performance, response, and durability.
While the A Mano is the highest grade reed offered by most other accordion makers, I go one step beyond with the A Mano Supreme which also comes in both standard and bombate versions. The brass alloy frame enables superior resonance, response, and clarity; this one is for those who want the very best sounding accordion on earth, bar none.
Any of the above reeds can be installed as upgrade reeds for many of the popular accordions such as Castagnari, Saltarelle, Cairdin, Paolo Soprani, etc.
The Classic series reeds are specially designed to recreate the sound of vintage melodeons and accordions. The low octave reeds have a lighter tone and balance nicely with the mid and high octave reeds.

Thank you for your time.
