Saltarelle Connemara 3 for sale
« on: August 11, 2011, 04:03:27 PM »

EDITED DUE TO YET ANOTHER TYPO IN LAYOUT AND THUS BAD INFO BELOW

Now I have my Pariselle 2.5 row I am offering my Connemara 3 for sale.

For the uninitiated the Connemara 3 is a two and half row box and has three voices/stops in the treble and stops for both low reeds and thirds in the bass. Mine has a slightly different layout on the chinmost buttons and the half row to the standard box. The layout is attached below, the chinmost buttons give a lower octave of G which I like so much I copied it for my Pariselle and is very like the layout that was popular on the recent "4th button start" thread. The half row gives such delights as a low D/E reversal, F in both directions high D reversal , push C etc.

Comes complete with hard case and two straps.

Looking for £1600 - £1000 less than the new price.

Should the Eb and the F not be the other way round?

Not necessarily,  its something I've seen either way round depending on waht and how you play.

But Lester mentions that it has F in both directions. On his layout diagram, there are two Fs, next to each other, in the same direction.

Well spotted Ollie - initial post updated. Blame it on finger trouble when doing the layout diagram  ???

They're that way round on my Pastourelle, though I was a bit disconcerted on playing a friend's Connemara to discover they were the wrong opposite way round.  I can't see the sense of having the F on the push when the F bass is on the pull.  But then Lester's box doesn't have an F bass......

Among others, Saltarelle Pastourelle II D/G; Hohner 4-stop 1-rows in C & G; Hohner 2915 C/F; Hohner Club II (declubbed) Bb/Eb; 3-voice German G/C of uncertain parentage; Hohner 4-bass 1-row currently in C but liable to modification...

It is now.   :P :D

In all seriousness though, had you but this up for sale about 4 months ago, I almost certainly would've purchased it. Hope it sells. It's a very good price.  (:)

I went down to sidmouth to look for a new box, I had previously thought about this very model. I'd heard that new ones Saltarelles are a bit hit and miss (some are awesome, some ... not). I ended up getting a Beltuna Alex 3, but had this come up before sidmouth, who knows :)

Are the topmost bass chord button is really A+/G+? That is, is the pull G+ bass chord paired with an E fundamental bass?

I assume this is sold now. So, if you missed it (Les?!), check Theo's site out for the Saltarelle Neuilly - it looks lovely and I'd be sorely tempted if I didn't already have a PastourelleIII. ;D
