    Wanted - Large Crane duet concertina

    Many thanks for your suggestions. I was beginning to think on these lines to see what could be done. As you suggest, a smaller e.g. 48 button instrument would be more manageable than my original thought of a ‘large’ Crane duet. I’ll look at this further. Many thanks Peter

    Wanted - Large Crane duet concertina

    Many thanks for your thoughts. I like playing hymns on my Crane concertina - hence my desire to have some lower buttons on the left hand side. The Salvation Army seemed to manage without those lower keys but I like the full depth of the base line! I completely agree with your suggestions about improvements to the Crane concertina but don’t know if anyone has done this. Thanks again.

    Wanted - Large Crane duet concertina

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have been unable to locate on the internet the variants to the 55 button that you suggest. Could you give me some direction? regards Peter

    Wanted - Large Crane duet concertina

    Many thanks for the suggestion. I was talking with the Box Place last week about this concertina. As RAc says the bottom end is only down to the C below middle C. I’m beginning to think that maybe I should start with this 55 button! Thanks for your help Peter

    Wanted - Large Crane duet concertina

    I am looking for a larger Crane duet concertina, probably 68 button. I have a 35 button but find its range rather limiting and am looking for a Crane/Triumph duet which goes down to the G one & a half octaves below middle C. If anyone has a larger Crane they are looking to sell, please contact me. I have seen the occasional large Maccann for sale but no large Crane concertinas. I’m new to concertina.net so am learning how it works. If you have difficulty contacting me on concertina.net, please e-mail me at psmith3087@aol.com. Thanks Peter
