BELTUNA LEADER 5 PROFESSIONAL ACCORDION - DOUBLE TONE CHAMBER LEADER 5 WITH HELICON BASE OPTION, HAS BALKAN STAR GRILL UPGRADE WITH Q-LINK MIDI INSTALLED ACCORDION IS AS NEAR NEW AS YOU WILL FIND FOR A GENTLY PLAYED 10 YEAR OLD INSTRUMENT. There are no onboard electronic sounds so you must have your own expander module. I played by directly picking the sounds off my ketron SD3 module on the fly. I didn't have the brain power to memorize charts of numbers of sound addresses and I found I couldn't bend my neck to see the tiny displays located on some accordion grills, so this did me just find without messing up the beautiful grill.

The only distraction on this accordion can be seen in the photo of the basses. In the center of the bass strap, there is a small 1/4" chip in the celluloid which has been glued back to the bass cover, I don't know what caused this, probably caught on watch band.
