    I have been learning on an older accordion for just over a year and bought the romance 703 2 weeks ago. I find it plays extremely well and is easy to handle. The 5 rows on the treble hand make it a lot easier to play than the 3 row which I had previously.,Tha was a pleasant surprise as I had though t it might be even more confusing. The 5 registers give a good choice of sounds and I make a lot of use of them.They add versatility .
    It is an attractive instrument which seems to be well made, is very comfortable to play and has a very nice feel and sound. Altogether I am very happy with it and have found no problems

    Had excellent support from Free the Reed which added enjoyment to the whole experience of buying a new accordion
