West Sussex Accordion Club Has Closed

Re: West Sussex Accordion Club, Cants Lane, Burgess Hill.

We have just heard via our friends at the Guildford Accordion Club that sadly, the West Sussex Accordion Club that started in September 2009 has closed forthwith.

Ron and Sue Bennett wish to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported the club during the past seven years.

I think a lot of people would like to thank Ron and Sue for running the club over that time.

Ranco Supervox 120 Bass Accordion now in stock!

We are pleased to be able to announce that we have just taken a top quality Ranco Supervox 120 bass accordion into stock. This stunning professional standard accordion is a full size 120 bass 41 treble key model, and is tuned to a four voice musette, making it ideal for the French and Scottish styles of playing.

One of the main things that attracts players to the Ranco Supervox, is the outstanding quality of the reeds, making this a very sought after accordion. Our particular example benefits from having just undergone a full restoration in our workshop. This Ranco Supervox is presented for sale in very good cosmetic condition for its age, and finished in a high gloss black, and features a very attractive full decoration.

The Ranco Supervox would make an ideal accordion for the professional player, or indeed, the discerning amateur, and would be the perfect ceilidh box. This classic accordion is reasonably priced at only £2,995, so why not visit us today and try it out for yourself!
