Castagnari keyboard layout - help please!!
« on: January 16, 2019, 04:45:03 PM »

Hey fellow accordion players,

Would anyone be able to shed some light on the very confusing keyboard layouts that castagnari have just sent me by email...

Rather than 'A', 'B', 'C', 'C#' etc in the circle (button) that I am familiar with, they have 'Mi', 'So', 'Do' 'Re'.
I'm sure is very simple, but am the moment I have no idea. Any help would be great!

Thank you very much.

Kr,

Phil

They use the Fixed do solf├Ęge system so Do is C and so on.

Here are a couple of keyboard layouts for D/G and G/C Castagnari 1914 boxes.
You should be able to extract what you need from these.
