Special Features
Treble Keyboard:
• Titano treble keyboards are custom fabricated for maximum responsiveness, exciting vitality and tonal performance.
• Precision-fitted guides are surfaced with a specially formulated, lubricated material selected for its non binding properties.
• A dual suspension key pinning system provides the critical balance needed for "velvet" response, swift action, and perfect alignment.
• Pin point weighting at the front of each key assures unprecedented balance over the entire keyboard.
• Rigid duraluminum "L" extrusion furnishes complete dimensional stability and absolute warp-resistance over the full length of the keyboard.
• Each key is made of hardwood covered with heavy prime celluloid, matched for uniformity of color and beauty.
• Resilient, air filled felt bumpers provide a thick cushion under each key to eliminate mechanical sounds.

• Titano reeds of vibrant Swedish blue steel are hand-fitted, riveted on precision duraluminum plates and individually tuned for brilliant voicing.
• Seasoned kidskin leathers, hand rolled and hand cut 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 and polished to a lustrous finish, much like a piano soundboard, to eliminate the potential for warping and to enrich tonal quality.

• Three-piece pad assembly is made of choice base material, carefully fitted with heavy felt and fine suede.
• Valves are individually fitted for perfect, self-gasketed seating, complete dependability, and sound-proofed performance.
• Rods are precision contoured and polished to resist corrosive elements and for reliable operation.
• Plates and slides are burnished to a chromed sleekness, which permits positive seal and surpasses self-lubrication for friction-free performance.

• Extra deep fold construction provides maximum uninterrupted air swirl and requires less exertion when playing.
• Rounded chromed steel corners are professional-type, selected for strength and long-term retention of highly polished beauty.
• All folds have heavy, textured tape reinforcement with cross-knit process for long-wearing quality.
• External hardwood frames are carefully fitted and adjusted on each instrument, to assure the absolute hermetic seal necessary for flawless compression.

Bass Machine:
• Piston thrust is instantaneous and set uniformly for free gliding operation, without any sluggishness.
• Precise registration of bass machine includes regulating of pin-play for immediate response and uniformity in all octaves, which will require less service.
• Curvature of upright pins is calculated to instantly activate bass response to slightest finger pressure.
• Chrome-polished duraluminum rods and friction free brass pins are selected for strength, corrosion-rejecting properties, and trouble-free performance.
• Thick felt of air-padded porosity silences all mechanical noise at contact points within bass machine.
• Multi-ply sound-proofed bass board is a patented formulation which permits fitting to micrometer tolerances for efficient and silent mechanical operation.

• The nearly 6,000 parts of a Titano are all of carefully selected materials, painstakingly crafted to produce a superb musical instrument and provide the greatest possible value in each model's price range.
• Fine, pre-cut woods are patiently stored for years under rigid temperature, humidity, and air current control for full seasoning cycle. After careful inspection prior to use, only the flawless woods are accepted for Titano production.
• An average of 300 square inches (750 square centimeters) of prime suede and kidskin is used for each instrument. Leathers are dated and ideally stored for additional aging before selection is made for use in a Titano accordion.
• Chrome hardware is of the finest quality with heavy plating for long-lasting beauty and durability.
• Celluloid, specially formulated to Titano's standards for extra heavy grade with deeper color pigmentation, permits the triple sanding and buffing required for the rich finish of these accordions. Celluloid, too, requires years of aging under ideal conditions to eliminate its tendency towards shrinkage.

Special Features:
• Titano's gravitational center suspension eliminates all swivel and bounce through scientific distribution of proportioned weight. Complete bellows control, without the handicap of weight, simplifies even intricate dynamics and makes a Titano feel even lighter than it is.
• Integrated keyboard back cover of luxurious material is textured for slip proof comfort against the body.
• Bellows-Guard patented feature protects bellows completely. No other guard provides this degree of freedom in bellowing.
