The treble keyboard has 35 keys. But there is a difference here from other accordions that is worth pointing out. The lowest note on the keyboard is an extra note that is low D and it's there for an Irish musical reason. Not an F as you might assume by looking. Think of it as a 34 keyboard with a bonus note if you like.
The intricate details and quality are evident in the aesthetic of the finish. The keys are easy to play with light and fast action. The bellows move effortlessly and have subtle compression. Another striking point that is often overlooked in the accordion making business is the case. Saltarelle provides its own branded hard case at an extra cost. A quality case and worth the little bit extra.
People on the market for a lightweight accordion to play and travel will be very, very happy with this accordion.
The Clifden is available only in 60 basses.
The basses do away with the diminished row and run up to F# on the bass. There are no registers on the left hand, and the subtle arrangements of the reeds are suited to most tunes.
