Reeds of vibrant Swedish blue steel are hand-fitted, riveted on precision duraluminum plates and individually tuned for brilliant voicings. (All Victoria Accordion reeds are either fully hand-made or carefully hand-finished, depending on the model.)
Seasoned kidskin leathers, hand-cut, hand rolled, in graded thicknesses, conform exactly to the reeds’ size requirements for instant response.
Larger leathers are reinforced with spring steel boosters, carefully applied to eliminate any possible sluggishness due to size of leather.
Blocks for the treble reeds are firmly anchored for uniform tension over their entire length, retaining their original airtight seating for maximized compression and thus directing more air at the specific reed in use.
Reed blocks are multi-coated with varnish, polished to a lustrous finish, to eliminate warpage potential and enrich tonal quality much like a piano soundboard.
