  1. 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
  2. This might be of some interest to those looking for historical/unusual/"concertinas with a story" ..... (I'm an anglo player so I wouldn't know!!) https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/gorringes/catalogue-id-srgo10210/lot-d908d6f6-bdcf-44bd-b6c6-ac1300b4f5c4?utm_source=auction-alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=auction-alert&utm_content=lot-image-link "A 19th century Louis Lachenal Presentation cut brass inlaid thuya concertina, number 12378, with forty eight glass buttons, five-fold leather bellows, scroll fret-cut ends, one mounted with a silver plaque, inscribed "Presented to Rt. Carter of E. Division by E. Lachenal for his activity in bringing to justice two men for breaking and entering her warehouse Nov 9th 1868", in its thuya veneered hexagonal case, case lacking carrying handle"
  3. 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 is currently restoring my third George Jones (although keep an eye out as I will be selling at least one of them shortly to pay for the current restoration :) ) So a reflection on the button pattern might shed some light on whether it is a Jones?

  4. Did anyone ever get round to creating and publishing a concertina emjoi??
  5. https://www.cacornish.co.uk/musical-instruments/ does the whole range of concertina leather bits..... Gerry
  6. 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. If you would like to let me know the sizes required I can advise the cost. We either split thin at .2mm across the whole width or centre split to .6/.7mm with both edges bevelled. Please send your address and I can send samples. I look forward to your reply. Kind Regards Lynda Lynda Cornish C. A.

  7. 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!
  8. a "G" version is available here: (5th version of the collection) https://thesession.org/tunes/18
  9. Get Dave Elliot's Concertina Maintenance manual as a starter!
  10. I'm certainly NOT a teacher or instructor , just an enthusiastic anglo learner like yourself (using ABC), but I'm in Cumbernauld so if you fancy meeting up to see if we can learn a few tunes from each other... ?
  11. Good (wo?) man! I've ordered the Nervous man.... one down... one to go! Thanks! Gerry
  12. Hi Wolf what size/model of Pelican Case did you order??
  13. Too right Peter I know its a great CD but that has to be a world record!!! I'll happily buy a second hand copy if that's all that is available..... anyone want to part with their copy?
  14. Hi, I'm trying to track down a UK outlet for two Mícheál Ó Raghallaigh CDs, namely "The Nervous Man"(2002) & "Inside Out" (2008) Any clues anyone?? Ta! Gerry S
