I'm new to this forum, but not the concertina. I purchased an instrument in 1995 from the Button Box. Inside, on the back of one of the keyboard ends it says "David J. Leese", 22/1/95, No. 71. There is no name or tag on the concertina. I think the Button Box said it might be a Jones or a Crabb. Does anyone know David, and know if he's still around? Thanks.

Dave Lees was/is trading as concertina-spares.com may well be one and the same and has done a repair in the past.

Sadly David died last year, but restored and repaired concertinas for many years, working with Chris Algar at Barleycorn Concertinas, amongst others. His Concertina Spares business is now run by Mark Lloyd-Adey.
