For sale: Frontalini BCC# 80 bass
« on: April 21, 2017, 01:25:39 PM »

For sale on behalf of a friend, a black Frontalini BCC#. 34 key treble, 3v MMM, no couplers. 80 bass, 4v, no couplers. Probably dates from the 1950s and hasn't been played in a long time. This instrument requires some work to be put into good playing condition, mainly the replacing of reed valves in both treble and bass, as can be seen from the photos. It has a nice low keyboard action. Comes with rather narrow shoulder straps. No case.

When put into reasonable playing condition this would make a good starter BCC# box, better than e.g. a Hohner Trichord.

Asking £200 o.n.o. plus carriage at cost. Located Largs, Ayrshire, Scotland.

looks a bargain for anyone wanting to try coming over to the dark side!  replacing valves is not a  massive job to do or have done

hmm tempting...  :D though by my calculation that is 102 reed plates on the treble side and 48 on the bass...which is a lot of reeds. I bet it sounds nice!
