  1. I suspect this discussion need to be in a different forum, however you may be interested to know that yesterday at SqueezEast Concertina Band Day in Stamford UK, I played my 12 button English as a piccolo in a Handel piece. There were three treble players with me who could read the ledger lines, as well. When I bought mine I thought I was buying a curio or a toy, but it has turned out to be a serious and useful instrument. I use it quite a bit in our concertina band, to play descant lines. If you go to the SqueezEast Concertinas website you can hear it on a number of the recordings. It is in The William Giles Quadrille on this page http://squeezeast.org.uk/sq18.php Mine, a metal ended, bone button, Wheatstone, has been fully serviced by Steve Dickinson, so is in tip top playing condition. I find it makes my hands ache if I play it for too long though. It has no thumb straps, so we attached a mobile phone wrist strap, just in case I were to drop it.
