Product Description

Mint condition walnut wood Castagnari Dinn III in C#D for sale. Comes with original Castagnari hardshell case and one original strap. Perfectly in tune. This is a compact 3 voice LMM instrument with a stop for the low reeds. This instrument was made in Italy in 2008.

In some ways this is better than new as the bellows are worked in nicely and supple in use. The reeds have had a few years to settle in and I have just retuned all treble reeds. Rather than the standard Castagnari ‘dry’ tuning I have added a mild tremolo. It varies from 0.5 Hz on the lowest note to 4.2 Hz on the highest note with a gradation in between. I use Viennese tuning where rather than having one set of reeds on zero and the second set tuned ‘plus’ I have one set of reeds ‘minus’ and one ‘plus’ so the resulting blended sound is right on pitch. The third set of lower octave reeds are tuned right on pitch.
