Nice black wood saltarelle Nuage in BC for sale. Comes with original hardshell case, gig bag and one original strap. Recently tuned with a tremolo beat frequency between 1.5 Hz (low notes) and 5 Hz (high notes). This is a compact 3 voice LMM instrument with 5 stops. 3 on the treble side allow M,M+,L,LM,LM+,MM+,LMM+ settings for a variety of sounds. It was purchased new in 1996 and has the butterfly logo badge.
The wooden parts are in very good condition with no cracks or separations but there are some very minor bumps and nicks from use. Please see photos. The bellows are worked in nicely and supple in use.
Since it has LMM+ reeds it is tuned with one middle reed on pitch and the other middle reed tuned higher. The low reeds are also tuned on pitch. First I brought the M and L reeds that had drifted back to zero. I then tuned the M+ reeds to provide a tremolo with a beat frequency of 1.5 Hz low notes to 5 Hz high notes. 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.
On the bass side there are two stops. One removes the third from all chords and the other removes the low bass notes.
