  1. Couldn't get photos to load from my PC, but it's a straightforward Jackie. Comes with gig bag.
  2. Edit: found a trade locally, thanks for looking! Concertina Connection Jackie, impeccable condition. Thought I'd try my hand with an English, but we're not suited for one another. Looking to swap for a Wren, or, failing that, to sell for $300. Thanks for looking, happy weekend!
  3. Bill, that's tremendously helpful, thanks very much.
  4. Hi, folks! I'm about a month into playing concertinas, and I'm finding myself a bit out of my depth in trying to perform maintenance on a new purchase. I bought a Renelli on the cheap, and it looked as though it needed an orthodontist more than anything. The buttons have a lateral range of traverse that cause them to be uncomfortable / inconsistent to play. Whatever material was originally used to seat the buttons on their levers (levers still work great) has deteriorated and is allowing them to slide freely. Part of the appeal of this particular instrument was that, for $30, I wasn't afraid to crack it open and mess around with it. I'm leaning towards sections of a hand soap pump's tubing, but I'd love to hear any solutions that y'all may have encountered when affecting DIY repairs. Hi, folks!

Part of the appeal of this particular instrument was that, for $30, I wasn't afraid to crack it open and mess around with it. I'm leaning towards mounting the buttons on small sections of a hand soap pump's tubing, but I'd love to hear any solutions that y'all may have experimented with when affecting DIY repairs. Thanks very much, have a great week.
