Nello GabrielloniWe are continuing our journey among the manufacturing companies in Castelfidardo. Today we  visit the workroom of a very well know and esteemed among experts: Nello Gabrielloni describes the services of  his company, Agenzia Italia.

 

ACTIVITY OF AGENZIA ITALIA: we are pleased to inform  accordion lovers  about the development of the activity of our company. Apart from the construction of special accordions on request, which now continues with a new project for the realization of a particularly suitable instrument to the Balkan music  and the sale of accessories and specific components for various foreign manufacturers and a several customers, we would like to emphasize that in our opinion is the real corporate essence:  the restoration and regeneration of old instruments (standard or diatonic system) and/or parts of it.

 

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WEB AND RESTORATION: the possibility to restore musical instruments in disuse for some time and eager to be able to still express their  “voice” in the form of musical expression gratifies our daily work and repays all our efforts in this area.
 At the present time, characterized by a broad popular access to the computer, there are many instruments placed for sale on the various specialized websites. Sometimes we can see still valid  instruments, from an aesthetic mechanical and acoustic point of view, offered for sale by their owners, mostly professionals players, after being replaced by more modern instruments. Other times, instead, we see old instruments, typically to “study” and then abandoned after a few years, or more technically complete, left by died accordionists to their unwitting heirs.
In this sense, quite often receive emails or phone calls that we require a review about an actual value of standard accordions and diatonic instruments   in order to establish a selling price to these instruments, pulled out of some dusty attic or ragged enclosures and afflicted from the many evils of the time, especially caused by disuse and wetness.

 

RECOVERY AND DEVELOPMENT: to overcome these situations that bring together sellers and buyers, tied closely the actual miserable state of the instruments, we decided to conduct our work in the area  of restoration and regeneration.
To exemplify our business better so we are pleased to show you some pictures of instruments   that have undergone interventions making better and giving a new essence, also from the aesthetic side, but especially functional, with full reviews of the various mechanisms and the recovery of the acoustic part, bought cheaply on the various sites. Many of the restored / regenerated instruments are products purchased from stores specializing in selling them with a full featured but other times we have the chance to work on instruments purchased by amateurs who wish to have antique but functional products.
