Advice on Choosing Melodeons

Choosing your Melodeon

What tuning should I get?

Firstly you need to know what style of music you will mainly want to play, the most popular styles are given below, and each calls for a different tuning. Apart from the style you prefer, you should consider what key your friends use, so you can join in and learn from them, and the pitch of your voice. We would always recommend you to start on a two row.

Castagnari: The leading Italian melodeon maker   View all Castagnari Melodeons   View all Castagnari Products

Castagnari is a small family workshop in Italy, which produces a superb range of craftsman made instruments for us, with attractive natural wood finish, open keyboard, delicately fretted wooden grille, and the very best in reed work. Attention is paid to every detail, you simply can't buy a better melodeon at any price.

All models have good Italian reeds, and the more expensive models have very powerful handmade reeds. We stock most models in a dry tuning (almost no tremolo), but swing, tremolo, and other variations are available to order, or we can modify stock items for you.

We offer most models from stock in D/G either with or without accidentals, and a selection in B/C, but any tuning can be supplied to order. All except the Mignon come in a deluxe hard case.

Most of the models are named after members of the Castagnari workforce and their families.

Castagnari Staff

A Castagnari Melodeon really is something special. We have tried melodeons by just about every maker in the world over the years, and we are not at all surprised that Castagnari have become recognised as the best. Right across their whole range we can unhesitatingly recommend each model.

Castagnari also produce a number of other models which we don't always keep in stock, but they can easily be ordered. Those which Castagnari make a lot of, for other markets, take three months or so to get, but there are some which they only seem to make once or twice a year, and these can take a long time to arrive. This is a full list of the models other than our regular stock items: Jean Pierre, Roma, Fazzy, Borgo 8 & 12, Alain 8 & 12, Korry, Sessy, Marc 8 & 12, Montmartre-Wielly, Handry 18, Miky, Matty & Jacky.
