Castagnari or Saltarelle?

We have some evidence, however, that you may have to pay for the reeds.

Castagnari or Saltarelle?

Post by Luigi diatonic »

I want to buy a diatonic accordion, 18 bass and 3 rows, to play popular repertoire (tarantella, pizzica). Which do you recommend between: castagnari and saltarelle?
Thank you

Ciao Luigi.

I think a better place to ask this question would be on the melodeon.net forum. There are people interested in 18-bass accordions there. http://forum.melodeon.net/

Tell us something.: I'm an accordion player, I love playing Irish music. I also run a shop called Mudchutney selling folk music themed clothing, go take a look, I think it's brilliant! I'm registering because I love all things folky and music related so want to share the love, and read more and more about this kind of stuff. Is that enough? Feels weird writing like this...kind of like trying to be a real person, which obviously I am, but you don't know that.

It's all down to personal preference, it's like asking someone whether to buy a BMW or an Audi. Horses for courses.
I'd suggest trying both, and you'll know within seconds which one "feels" right.
And yes, try melodeon.net and you'll probably find about 50% of people recommend each brand! (I prefer Saltarelle for what it's worth)
