Product Description

Mint condition cherry wood Castagnari Tommy in GC for sale. Comes with original Castagnari hardshell case and original straps. Perfectly in tune. This is a very compact 3 voice LMM instrument with a stop for the low reeds.

I have made one fully reversible modification. I felt the distance from the outer row of button to the edge of the keyboard was too short. I have carefully made a koa wood extension. The back edge was made with a convex profile to match the existing keyboard’s concave finger groove. The outer edge of the extension has a deeper concave surface and it is angled downward a bit like some of the older Hohner keyboards. The top of the extension is level with and coplanar with the top of the existing keyboard. I flared out the edges to give more length attempting to match the style. Please see photo. I used double sided foam tape between the instrument and the extension. The extension and tape can be removed if desired but I feel this is an improvement overall and am selling it in place.

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 tweaked the few that shifted slightly so all is in great tune. The MM reeds are tuned quite dry. I will put up a few pictures here but can forward higher resolution photos to anyone interested.
