A hot retro accordion! The Titano Tiger was developed in the 1960s by Ernest & Faithe Deffner along with Bill Palmer. They were modelled on the similarly color-reversed Vox Continental combo-organ that all the British invasion bands were playing at the time, and feature a "swept" angled keyboard "so that flying fingers could easily be seen by the audience," according to Faithe Deffner. They also have an unusual keyboard setting with a "5th reed," to allow playing in 5ths. They came in a choice of three Fiat car colors: fire, sun and blue moon, and had pickups installed to appeal to rock bands.
This is a 120-bass model in the "Fire" orange color, S/N 694. It has 3 treble reed banks and 4 bass reed banks, 7 treble switches (with Low switch repeated), 2 bass switches, passive pickup with volume & tone knobs, weighs 19.6 lbs and has an 18 1/8" keyboard.
