Back-to-back video of both models playing a popular tune.  The Aeola is c 1909 with original 5-fold bellows and is in original old pitch.  The Model 5 from 1918 has a new set of bellows I made and installed recently.  It is in modern pitch.  I restored both instruments over the past 12 months.  The video is here:

Nice playing as always and nice job on the bellows.  I watched a couple of the other videos on the bellows construction, you've certainly put in a lot of work.  You are quite an all round concertina player and craftsman.
