This is a nice starter accordion, but it does need some attention out of the box, and it helps if you are mechanically inclined. During shipment, it is possible that the bass buttons will fall down inside or stick. If so, that will require removing the bass compartment plate and carefully unsticking the mechanism. On mine, the keyboard needed some leveling to make the keys even. The most challenging thing is that some of the notes did not play. I had to open the accordion, remove the reed blocks, and check/free every reed to ensure it played. This is not hard, but it does require some attention to detail. I also had to tighten a few loose bolts and screws on this instrument. Yet, once I did all of these things, I found that it will indeed make a nice beginners accordion with a pretty, bright sound. Hope this helps some of you.

Bad Physical Quality

The external body isn't in the greatest shape. The rhinestones appear to be poorly super glued on and theres several spots where the body is missing a small bit of paint.

Sound quality is great, but physical quality not so much. I'd only recommend this as a starter instrument.

Comments about SofiaMari SM-2648, 26 Piano 48 Bass Accordion:

This little accordian has an acceptable tone, but the reeds for the tremelo started malfunctioning 6 months after I bought it. Most of the other reviews seem satisfactory,so puchasing this product may be a gamble.

Best Contender for the price.

Comments about SofiaMari SM-2648, 26 Piano 48 Bass Accordion:

I love this little Accordion!! It has that sweet, Classic Italian Tremello voice when the Master(center) coupler is selected, and a straight non-tremollo voice as the alternet. Its only about 12 pounds and is smaller and easier to play than larger models. It is Beautifully made, with sparkling Rhinestones, Pearloid finish and gold leaf lettering "SofiaMari" and the case and straps are both nicer than I expected. No need to upgrade !! Bottom Line: A very SWEET Accordion for an entry level price. In Fact Im going to go downstairs to my studio and play it now!! !!

Student Accordion

By Jennifer Hernandez

from Baton Rouge, LA

Comments about SofiaMari SM-2648, 26 Piano 48 Bass Accordion:

A
I decided to learn to play the accordion and bought this one to learn on since it is priced as a low-end student accordion. I have almost no experience with accordions so I have very little to compare it to. This accordion weighs about 16 lbs. I am a small middle-aged female and this is about as much weight as I can handle. I wish it were a little lighter but it is the lightest piano accordion I could find.

I have noticed that the air release button tend to stick and has to be pulled up from time to time. I do not use the button but it inadvertently will get depressed by the straps.

Also, I'm not sure if it is my ametuer abilities or a flaw with the accordion but the low C makes a burping sound when I have it depressed and change direction on the billows.

Other than those two problems, it plays fine and has a very nice sound.

Comments about SofiaMari SM-2648, 26 Piano 48 Bass Accordion:

For the last year or so I've been playing a 12-bass, made-in-China, beginniners accordion. It's been fun but I needed to expand. I tried playing my daughter's full-sized 60-bass accordion a few times but found it too large, heavy, and difficult to handle. This smaller 48-bass model seemed like a very happy medium. And it is! And though it is Chinese-made, it definitely has an improved sound and playability over my 12-bass. Though I must admit, I miss being able to play down to the lower G that I could on my old one. This one is patterned after the Honers that start on a B. The appearance is beautiful. I love looking at it and on stage it is an eye catcher.

    Comments about SofiaMari SM-2648, 26 Piano 48 Bass Accordion:

    I bought a larger Sofia Mari a year ago and liked the tone very much. This lighter smaller-sized has a similar good clear tone, but limited in lower tones, both in base and treble.

    Also, I have to be more conscious of the in and out of the bellows or it runs out of air.

    The Sofia Mari i purchased for my wife had zero instructions in the box. We have been looking for the key chart for the buttons (six rows / 8 buttons per row) and can't find one anywhere. Can someone send a chart to us?
