Super sweet. I often think, how many different sounds can there be for a Castagnari. The Jilly sounds unique and lovely.

Both versions are excellent, Pikey, but I much prefer the sound of the Jilly - strong, sweet, melodious and capable of great subtlety. I wish I could justify buying one, but I've just ordered a Streb and I would have to have a death wish to consider buying anything else in the next couple of years. Pity!

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.
