Back     [Melodeon]





Here is a melodeon made by Giustozzi, Castelfidardo, Italy. It is in the key of A. It is in fantastic condition, with its original case. It is a three voice instrument, which is dry tuned (LMM). It has one stop to remove the low voice. It has 12 keys in total, the three on the second row are repeat notes in reverse, ie, on the pull instead of the push, and vice versa. Very handy for complicated runs. Also all three together on the pull give the arpeggio chord of A, handy to finish a tune with a full chord, when you’ve run out of air on the push!

It has two built in microphones, which work well (connecting cable included). The tuning is spot on, i know, i tuned it! I am the UK’s only maker of cajun accordions, and also offer tuning services to my customers. Note, the very first low note, (the one you don’t use!), does not have the low voice, it was made that way.

I could go on, i have been to the workshop in Castelfidardo twice, and all the accordions they make are excellent. If this is for you, you will not be disappointed. 

Overall, a fantastic playing melodeon, fast action, with a fat, loud sound for its small size.
