Excellent condition Castagnari Rik accordion in ADG. This is a high end Italian instrument manufactured in 2013. The 33 button treble side has a stepped keyboard. It is in two voice LM configuration thus bandoneon voicing without tremolo. It features Voci Armanoniche reedplates. It is configured with 4th button ‘start’ and has both low notes and accidentals. A button chart is included in the photo section (revised/corrected 7/26/16).
The bass side has 12 basses and very nice 4 button registers that instantly switch between LOW NOTES IN/THIRDS IN; LOW NOTES OUT/THIRDS IN; LOW NOTES IN/THIRDS OUT; LOW NOTES OUT/THIRDS OUT. The walnut case is in great condition but has just a few bumps and scratches and a bit of ‘rash’ on the back where the strap buckle rested. I have changed the strap to a new Neotech strap with kinder plastic hardware (included).
The original bellows are super tight and no wear is showing on the tape. The original Castaganari hardshell case is provided.
This is a fine newer Castagnari Rik that currently retails for more than $4000.
