Like the title says, looking for the big square Bastaria Hayden. I'm expanding my collection of Hayden/Wicki instruments. I have an Elise, a Beaumont, Stagi hex, searching for the right Wheatstone, and having a certain maker build me more...

This purchase is for my music education non-profit, so I'll be loaning the instrument out to musicians who can borrow it for gigs and recordings. I know these aren't the smoothest players, so I figure some of the folks who own them must have them mostly sitting in a closet doing nothing, so if that's you, rest assured I can put it to work getting played regularly and introducing novices to the world of concertinas. I'm based in Montreal, but also have an address in Paris I can have it sent to if you're in Europe, or Bogota if you're down south. Hope we can make a deal to get it out of the closet and playing!

IIRC from posts many years ago, only 10 of these were made (Inventor would know). Good luck with the search.

I've only been aware of two bouncing around this side of the puddle. One, I think, is on the west coast (at least it was 20 years ago when I lost track of it) and the other is owned by Mike Knudsen in Maine ("ragtimer" of this forum, although he hasn't posted in over 5 years). I don't know to what extent he's still playing it.

Member 'gwhlevy' in California has one - maybe the one David lost track of?

 

Again, he has not logged in for years although I did successfully PM him 3 years ago...

You also might try contacting Inventor offline.

That’s the one. I have no idea if Grant still has it.
