When I was a teenager, I used to play an accordion very similar to this one. Now, I'm 68 and retired and decided to take up the accordion again. I went on line and found my accordion - this one. It's a Hohner and it has 72 bass buttons, which is more than most people will ever need or use. It also had fewer piano keys so they are slightly wider than those on a full size accordion, which is helpful for somebody with big hands and fingers like me. And the sound quality is better than any electric keyboard I've ever heard. I highly recommend it to anyone.
