Organetto in D
« on: January 12, 2018, 11:38:05 PM »

Giuseppi Ianni et Figli Organetto in D, Model Art 210

This is an Italian-made 1.3 row, manufactured by a firm in Italy who have specialised in small organetti and diatonic instruments for over 100 years. This one was purchased new directly from a musician who worked in the Museum of the Accordion in Castelfidardo. It’s in absolutely new condition, and has mainly had light use at home. It’s very loud and has extremely wet tuning, but when I heard the Italian musician play it he could make it play with a lot of subtlety, as well as very fast when necessary. I’ve never been able to achieve either, but that’s my problem, not the instrument’s! I’ve tended to play this as a one-row with extra helper buttons, and it is fun to play...a new purchase means this one has to go. I'm looking for £600 +p&p in the UK.
