Nice cherry wood Castagnari Tommy in DG for sale. Comes with original Castagnari hardshell case and one original strap. Recently tuned almost dry but not completely. This is a very compact 3 voice LMM instrument with a stop for the low reeds. The instrument weighs around 6 pounds. I’m guessing it was manufactured in the early to mid 1990’s based on the wood logo.
The wooden parts are in very good condition with no cracks or separations but there are some bumps and nicks from 20 years of use. Please see photos.
The bellows are worked in nicely and supple in use. The reeds have had a few years to settle in and I have tweaked the few that shifted slightly so all is in great tune.
A previous owner had converted this to left hand by adding a second air button on the back. I have returned it to normal. I have put a veneer of matching beechwood on the back to cover the additional slot. Because of this modification I have lowered the price compared to previous Tommys I’ve sold.
