The Button Box
The Button Box is perhaps the "grand-daddy" of concertina and other squeezebox instruments in North America. They've been around a very long time, and their reputation is excellent. They also now manufacture and sell their very own line of highly regarded and affordable concertinas. Years ago I purchased my very first concertina (a Lachenal) from Rich, Doug and the guys, and they didn't steer me wrong, and service and support have always been excellent and affordable. Don't pass them up in your search for anything concertina or squeezebox related! Here is what they have to say about themselves: The Button Box specializes in new, used and vintage concertinas and accordions and stocks a wide selection of CDs, videos and books. They are also the makers of the well-respected R. Morse & Co concertinas and organizers of the annual Northeast Squeeze-In event held each September in Western Massachusetts.
Concertina Connection v.o.f.
Founded in 1993, the concertina connection started as a music publisher of concertina repertoire and restorer of high end vintage concertinas. They have restored some of the worlds most exclusive instruments over the years.
Owner of the Concertina Connection, Wim Wakker, is also the designer and owner of the successful Jackie, Jack and Rochelle entry level concertinas, as well as the new Clover anglo, a high end hybrid anglo.
The `Wakker` concertinas are exclusive hand made traditional concertinas (with ´real´ concertina reeds) made by Wim and Karen Wakker. The models include anglo, english, Hayden duet and Midi concertinas.
