  1. Hi Emily, if you don't know the difference between anglo and English or the different sorts of duet concertinas, there are several sites available for help, such as https://www.concertina.info/tina.faq/conc-typ.htm or you can ask on this forum. If you have some idea of what you want, but want help to understand makers, button layouts, etc., just speak up. Or PM me with questions, if you like.
  2. Hi emilyconcertina, Welcome to cnet. You don't say what you're willing to pay or what kind of concertina, but you might want to look at the Button Box in Sunderland MA, https://www.buttonbox.com/concertinas-in-stock.html They have a good range of used and new anglo, English and duet concertinas and a good reputation. (Disclaimer, I have no connection with them them.) Certainly much safer than buying on ebay, where they often can't tell whether an instrument is playable or not. Good luck and happy playing.
  3. I found a couple other versions of this in the same key, although they one show the first page: https://sheetmusic-free.com/hedwigs-theme-sheet-music-harry-potter/ https://www.sheetmusicdirect.com/se/ID_No/47996/Product.aspx They might give you some ideas. Just keep in mind that it's in E minor and try not to make it too "arty." Good luck!
  4. Oops, That's "playing" classical music.
  5. I've been paying classical music on anglo concertina for several years, and I've found that sheet music written for guitar works quite well since it's in roughly the same range. There are limitations of course; you can't do many bass runs because you don't have all the notes, and you don't always have the key combinations you want, but you can't let that stop you. And there's tons of material on the net, with IMSLP and free scores.com, Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, whatever. I also enjoy playing things like milongas, gatos and rancheras. Why isn't there more time? (rhetorical question, no need to reply.)
  6. This is the standard model, with all the options, an air lever instead of an air button, decorative papers, and metal buttons, as described here: https://wolvertonconcertinas.com/page/ Seller is open to offers. C'est beau, mon ami, bonne chance.
  7. Et, savez-vous, est-ce le model standard ou le model Advanced?
  8. Combien vous la vendiez? Merci
  9. What am I talking? You can play just about anything (theoretically). "One man's flat is another man's sharp." -- Anonymous

    Hi Jim, PM sent
  11. Just for the record (and not to nitpick) you could also play in F and B flat. What more could you want? Sounds like a nice 'tina!
  12. Sorry, Bob I didn't get a PM. Want to try my regular email? douknielson@comcast.net Thanks
  13. Hi Bob, Is the Clover 30 button anglo or the Tedrow baritone in Jeffries layout? And how wide is the latter, across the flats? Great photos, BTW. Thanks, Doug
  14. Thanks for the responses; I've now got a better idea of what's involved, i.e., I don't think I'll try to tackle switching back and forth (unless someone hands me a nice Wheatstone). And thanks, Ken, for the merge.
  15. Thanks, Jim It makes sense to me that switching between more different systems, i.e. Anglo and English, concertina and B/C accordion, would be easier, but I accept the fact that this ability differs widely from person to person, there being no way to predict how easily any individual might be able to do it, and that practice would increase the odds of pulling it off. Merging the two threads seems like a good idea, but I don't know how to go about it.
