What our concertinas look like?

Recommended Posts

I've really enjoyed looking at everyone else's instruments! One of my favorite pastimes is searching for pictures of beautiful squeezeboxes.

A member asked me some questions about my new Minstrel, so I thought I would post a few photos of it in case others were interested.

the mean green machine, wasn’t it that Geoff?

Indeed  that is  its name  Wolf.  This was taken at  a  New Year Ball  probably 2011.  The  concertina  is all original  except  for the bellows and straps, which are from  Wim Wakker.

I find the shiny (original) looks are reflecting the character of this (apparently not so much played) instrument. It has a well-balanced but distinct voice - not a screamer like my model 24 but very capable of fast playing in the treble range and adding „bass“ notes ad lib., maybe with potential for even more...

(I chose it over a slightly later model with more closed fretwork, with very lovely low notes but too muffled in the treble range to my taste)

After having denied the need and extra value of a TT to myself for years I‘m very happy to be able to expand my playing in this direction now - however switching back to the light, fast and „screaming“ 24 ET from time to time is nevertheless appealing to me, as well as perfectly manageable.
