...WOW...   I was in SanAntone today and i went to hermes or guitar center today...They have a wall full of Cantabella's... I was talking to the guy who runs that dept.. i asked him if guitar center was going to continue selling Canta's...he said yes...THEN...i started playing some 3 switch fbe's and they sounded real nice...(like a gabbanelli to my ears)....i was impressed but not to impressed....then i got a hold of a 5 switch fbe canta... and man o man ...that accordion sounded sweet....i didnt know how sweet it was until i went across the street to sam ash to see if they had any gabby's.....well they did they had a 5 switch that i tried out to compare...thinking the gabby was gonna blow away the canta...but boy was i shocked....the canta sounded way better than the gabby...the gabby was quiet nd more muffled...the canta was clear and loud...i was shocked...ive always played honors...and always wanted a gabby....but after today i am kind of sad to say...that i will be buying a cantabella...ive always loved gabby's and will probably always want one...but after today theres probably no going back...canta will be my accordion of choice....

Im glad they will still be around, I just love my box to death. Im very very happy to hear that someone else thought it was good. Gabbanelli has some good accordions no doubt, some are better then others but I'll stick with the Bellas.

I think Cantabella is making a special promotion to open the marketing for its products,
in order to hunt new clients.
Therefore is the chance to take advantage of such bid,all those that need one.

Man I wish I can find a store that sold accordions here in South Florida.  The Sam Ash here doesn't carry accordions so that you could try them out before you buy them.  I would buy a new Gabbanelli or a Hohner on the spot if I could try it out first to see if I like it.  I guess the accordion isn't that popular down here.

   I was in San Antonio on June the 10th.I went by Hermes and after several hours of looking and trying the accordions,I bought a 5 switch red pearl (FBE).The price was fantastic ($1500 including tax).It's a little bit boxier than my gabby,but it sounds great.

Oigan, muchachos my personal opinion is if you guys are going spend that kinda of money on a box,,and not buy a Gabby...you guys are selling yourselves by not trying out the a Box by Beltrami or Baffetti.  Give Karlos Landin a call or look him up at Karlitoswayaccordions.com...you guys will thank me later...Jay Lopez

ive tried several of canta's too!!! adn i hve to say that the canta's are realli good accordions!!! but teh desings on tehm are alil tacky though. but design is not wat im lookin for. sound quality, durability, weight, and the right price. those are the things im intrested in. the GABBANELLI acccordions can do all but 1. price is way over my budget. but CANTABELLA is more for less the money as i would put it. in other words, its worth buyin. the sound is great, its durable, weight is something i can handle(no need to get a back strap for more support), and most important the price is reasonable.......but that's jus my preception of the accordions.

AUTO MAKER: FORD

Cola: COCA COLA

Bottled water: Ozarka

PEGASSO: el de emilio reyna

ACCordion: PURO GABBANELLI!!!

but doesnt mean ill never own a chevy or drink pepsi and sometimes DEJABLUE is cheaper and pollo estaban has some good songs too.  But we cant talk bad about accordions before trying them out.  I like the cantabella pero en sonido no le llega al Gabbanelli. Reeds sound a little funky to me. Now Baldoni and Brillington wouldnt mind having one of those. But rather spend a lil more on a Gabbanelli to get a better look than a baldoni and spend a little less than a brillington to get pretty much the same quality. Maybe its a thing of tradition. Pero OVERALL KEY MESSAGE lets all practice are scales and songs Asi hacemos garras cualquier accordion. Bien dicen que LO BUENO ES EL MONO!

oh and Dallas guitar centers are also carrying Canta bellas and a series of accordions by the name of DIAMANTE.

estoy de acuerdo con regiojuan lo que el dice es la neta del planeta mejor hay que hacernos garras practicando y asi hasta un yingie podemos hacer llorar.

Is this accordion made by Polverini in Italy or assembled in China?

I was at Guitar Center in McAllen, TX yesterday and they were having a sale on some of their Cantabellas.  I saw some no-switch models starting at $799.  I thought that was a pretty good price for a quality box.

Hi Mr. Pierluca I am looking to purchase a accordion but can not choose from so many. I seen that SofiaMari Elite and Cantabella are made by you and on your website you sell your Tex Mex name brand accordions.Which is best for Mexican music and can you sell my an accordion? And how much? If you can't were in California in U.S.A can I bye one. Thank you Mr. Pierluca.
