since more then 40 years he build and develop bandoneons. The major changes though he did in the last three years. He himself play the instrument, and therefor it was most important for him to improve the following:
1) Typical bandoneon-sound.
2) Responsiveness and attack (important in Tango music).
3) Wider dynamic range (Pianissimo more quiet and Fortissimo more louder).
4) Warmer sound.
5) No sound differences in open and close.
6) Airtight bellows.
To reach this high quality constantly for your satisfaction, he build the instruments by himself. He started building bandoneons in 1970, because nobody did worldwide.
