Dave Magliozzi tests a Siwa & Figli "Artist Model" accordion.

This accordion has LMMH reeds, dry tuned to A442 (all reeds tuned to A442 including the middle reed outside the tone chamber, which is tuned sharp 4 cents). So, it has the traditional registers associated with that reed combination:
L = low reed (16')
M = middle reed (8')
H = high reed (4')
(Bassoon and Clarinet are "cassotto" voices - those two reeds are inside the tone chamber)

Bassoon (L) = low reed "in cassotto" (inside the tone chamber)
Clarinet (M) = middle reed in cassotto
Flute (M) = middle reed outside the tone chamber
Piccolo (H) = high reed outside the tone chamber

All the other registers or "stops" are combinations of the reeds listed above.

Bandoneon (LM) = bassoon + clarinet, both cassotto
"Sax" (LM) = bassoon + flute (middle reed outside the tone chamber)
Organ (LH) = bassoon + piccolo
Harmonium (LMH) = bassoon + clarinet + piccolo
Accordion (LMM) - bassoon + clarinet + flute
Master (LMMH) - all reeds
Violin (MM) = clarinet + flute (M cassotto, M outside)
Oboe (MH) = clarinet + piccolo
