Dino Baffetti Oakwood Binci III DG in excellent condition. This instrument was designed as a collaboration between Dino Baffetti in in Italy and Martyn Banks of Oakwood Instruments. The specification is 21 treble and 8 bass buttons. Three voice treble with a stop to control the low reed, and on the left end there is a stop to take out the thirds. Reeds are Binci Professional a mano with steel reeds on aluminium alloy plates. Swing tuning.
It’s only been lightly used. I don’t know it’s exact age, but this model has only been in production for about ten years, so its no older than that.
Comes with original case and straps.
This is how the maker describes it:
By collaborating with Dino Baffetti, Oakwood have taken the basic design of the Carnival III, redesigned the styling and grille, and fitted it out with top of the range accessories including Binci hand made reeds. The result is something like taking a Ferrari engine and putting it in a mini … it goes like the clappers!
The Baffetti Binci is small, light, responsive, incredibly loud when it needs to be and has become one of the first choices for session players and Morris musicians around the country. It features a stop to remove the thirds from the chords as standard. Simply a joy to play.
