Deep heligon basses are typical for a diatonic accordion.

The cassotto is an interior space in the right hand, which is used only in larger four-voices accordions. Before the tone leaves the instrument,
it bounces off the cassotto walls several times, making the sound significantly softer. We offer cassotto in Chorál 120 CASSOTTO, or Carmen 96 CASSOTTO.

These are the largest and strongest basses that are ever put to an accordion and are the same size as the basses in a diatonis accordion. This makes the sound of the left hand very pronounced. Such an accordion has a wide range of music from folk music to Argentine tango. We use heligon bass from the Italian company Cagnoni. We put heligon basses into Carmen or Chorál, also into button accordions Sonorex 96 – 120.
