Sharon Shannon has been playing the stepped fingerboard version for over 20 years and now the company are making a flat fingerboard version in her honor.
The Sound is the very same as the Tommy and unbelievably light with a big melodeon sound on the 3 reeds.
I am guaranteeing these accordions for 5 years so treat yourself to a visit to our showroom and see the quality of craftmanship for yourself.
I GUARANTEE ALL MY CASTAGNARI ACCORDIONS FOR 3 YEARS
Castagnari have been making accordions for three generations and today the family still resist going down the mass-production line, they want to remain a cottage industry - family run etc.. This explains the delays experienced by retailers. However, the high quality of their workmanship and versatility of their instruments makes the wait worthwhile - ask Sharon Shannon!
With the exception of the ciacy, all about accordions guarantee these boxes have TAM reeds. They can all be ordered with A Mano Reeds if that is your preference and any tuning be ordered and can be ordered in cherry wood or walnut.
The Family in the last few years have invested in New lazor Tecnology and this can be seen as the highest quality accordions produced anywhere in the World
The consistency in their production is unbelievable and flawless.
