My English Concertina (stagi tenor treble 56 key) lost one of its metal buttons. The lower part broke. Is there any way out there to get a new one? Or is there hope, that the original button can be fixed?

I include a picture of the button and a picture of the action I finally managed to open, so you can see, what I need.

If everything fails I may use the button of a rarely used note to fill the gap… but of course, I would prefer it to be "really" fixed

Any hints?

 

PS: Don't buy this stagi model! Really badly made.

The ButtonBox would be my first call; they move a good number of these, and probably have a box of buttons.

They aren't difficult to fix. What part of the world are you in?

should be able to get one. But you can use a high quality tight fitting rubber tubbing slip over the bottom of the button allowing a hole to be cut either precut or peirced by the lever arm . The sort of tubbing used in barrel organs, medical pumps or small high quality fuel lines such as model aircraft etc . only need a small piece.Cant see the repair when reassembled.could experiment with other tubes.
