  1. I see you're in the UK. I have two of my concertinas in a case, the same as this from the same Ebay seller. I added some high density foam to provide the correct support and division... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142818481322?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 It is very robust if a little on the heavy side, I but I'd rather have such a small (potential) inconvenience if it means protecting my "babies" to the max!
  2. Brilliant!! I first came across Simon in a session in a very strange pub in Poznan, Poland.... Lots of vodka and some great music.... brilliant then.... even more brilliant now!!
  3. Great Find! Excellent variety and new names to look out for...
  4. Hi Patrick, I have a Lachenal B/F# 27 button anglo, tuned A=440, newpads, valves... generally fettled (professionally) last year.... £800 if you are interested...? Gerry
  5. Roy, Dave Elliot (miraculously) fettled mine into playable condition.... it was in its original old (Philharmonic?) tuning and he retuned it to A=440, replaced valves, pads, .......• "The valves are all but original, replace all • The pads are totally unserviceable, replace all • The cross bushes are some missing other a bit tatty, change all • The long structural screws are wrong, they need possibly drilling out and replacing (one per end) • The innards need a good clean • The pad board has shrunk and needs packing/ gluing • There are a number of missing
  6. Hi Roy, I have a 27 key Lachenal (60792 ) (apparently originally a 26 key with a 27th added retrospectively) in B/F# which is its original key..... looks just like yours.... :)
  7. I currently have a Lachenal 20 button on ebay for spares or repair.... and among the other bits in the lot are two sets of reed pans one set with brass and one set wit steel reeds.... so that's a lot of Lachenal reeds...... just sayin' :) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193633978855
  8. This might be of some interest to those looking for historical/unusual/"concertinas with a story" .....

  9. Just an observation... I have two George Jones concertinas and a couple of Lachenals and have just discovered, (from Andrew Norman) that George Jones "accidental/incidental" (outer) rows had/have a slightly different layout to the standard Lachenal or Jeffries layout ie: Left hand: Jones (and early Lachenals) used E push/G# pull on the lowest button, later everyone went to E/F as the lowest button Right Hand: Jones used D#/C#push for 1A, G/G#push, Bb/c# push, the f/a (like the highest Lachenal button) then a high d#/and very high c on the push (Credit to Andrew Norman for this info as he

  11. https://www.cacornish.co.uk/musical-instruments/ does the whole range of concertina leather bits..... Gerry
  12. I recently bought a few trial pieces from here...... Thank you for your enquiry. We manufacture the leather bindings mentioned but in a softee hide leather not goatskin.

Please send your address and I can send samples. I look forward to your reply. Kind Regards Lynda Lynda Cornish C. A. CORNISH | 21 High Street | STREET | Somerset | BA16 0EF Tel: +44
  13. I recently purchased Jason O'Rourke's excellent CD " The Northern Concertina". I am completely blown away by the Mazurka "L'Aguilette". Does anyone have the music or ABC they can share..... It would make this "old man" very happy!
