  1. Thank you! Now I know those wrist strap are original 🙌
  2. wow! so close to this concertina! Yous appears to have been made on October 25, 1920. And it is a 56 keys tenor-treble right? It also shares the same description S.V and W.S. Do you know what those mean? thank you!
  3. Luckily I have a short video and I was able to measure the pitch of some notes with a digital tuner. It's in A452 just like you said. Is it a bad thing? I'm guessing it will be more trouble to change it to 440 maybe?
  4. Thank you so much for all of your replies! Yes! I forgot to mention that. thanks It is my attention to get a copy as soon as possible! thank you! This is one of my biggest concerns. I guess I will take the shot anyway since it is such a beautiful instrument. Thank you so much for your comments! Thank you! I'll go ahead then and try to ge it restored the best I can. Did you ever saw another one with 7 fold bellows?
  5. I got the rare opportunity to buy a Wheatstone Model 22 English Concertina here in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Thing is, I need some help since the concertina is not in good condition and there are not many people who can fix concertinas around here.Issues are the following:-It is not in A 440-Thumb straps are broken.-A couple keys don't sound when push or pullBellows are fine and look original to me. It has 7 fold bellows which is really interesting.Also, the original leather case is there.How much is worth in this condition? I would really appreciate your comments. I have added some pics below. Thank you so much! 🙌
  6. Hi There! Soy de Argentina. Toco Maccann Duet concertina. Si necesitas alguna ayuda podés escribirime y te oriento un poco.
  7. Acording to the Wheatstone ´s ledgers your concertina was made in 1966
  8. Thank you both for your comments! Papawemba thank you for the article. I´m sending you a message.
  9. I would really appreciate your opinions on this one. I´m looking to pick up the Anglo and I prefer vintage. 26 keys would be great since they usually are less expensive than 30 keys. Are the mahogany Lachenal steel reeds (pic) better than a Jones? Thank you!
  10. What are your opinions on this tina? https://www.ebay.com/itm/324612301446 is it a Maccann with added thumbstrap to play like english?
  11. Cerot thank you so much! Great review! Looks like the Rochelle 2 is a winner and big step up from the previous model. Great photos too!
  12. Hi Cerot! Have you received the new Rochelle 2? Please post some pics and give us your impressions. Thank you!
  13. Hi everyone! It´s been almost 4 or 5 years since my last post here! I´m picking up the concertina again. Last night I visited the concertina connection site and found that a Rochelle 2 is out now. There is only one picture and no videos and I haven't found any reviews here. Did anyone get one? it looks nice and considerably smaller than the old Rochelle. thanks!
  14. Hi Bill! I´m from Buenos Aires, Argentina. You will see a lot of tango and bandoneon here. There are many traditional irish folk groups here but sadly no concertina. I´m the only one playing duet concertina that I know. I can´t understand why no one plays concertina here. You can found people playing all kind of rare instruments here but never concertina.
  15. Thanks Don! I´m now hearing lots of Boden tunes on spotify UPDATE: I´ve made a playlist with all the Boden´s songs that includes concertina. Here is the link: https://open.spotify.com/user/11100042394/playlist/5UyXEomoAvtL0ZTZ46SWn3 Enjoy!
