Not knowing a thing about accordions, I decided to google "Petosa" to see what I could find out. The search immediately takes you to www.petosa.com. It only takes a year to make a Petosa Accordion. The wood used in making the instrument has to be aged 20 years before it is cut and shaped into accordion pieces. A Petosa accordion begins as a seasoned mahogany box which is covered with burnished celluloid and filled with 3800 handmade parts. 3800 handmade parts. The Petosa Factory is in Italy where they are painstakingly handcrafted and then shipped to the Seattle shop for fine tuning.
