  1. Hi Karl, the concertina is great. I love to play it. 😀 Thank you for it. BR Peter
  2. Hi Karl, I live in Mülheim, a city located in NRW near Düsseldorf. I will contact you via PM. BR Peter
  3. Hi Karl, is the Elise still for sale? And would you send it to Germany? Best regards Peter
  4. Not nice and a very sticky job but it works. The Concertina plays much better now. 🙂
  5. Hi all, first I want to thank all of you for your tips. You convinced me that I should give my clowncertina a chance So tomorrow I am going to buy some transparent elastic tape (fixomull) and try to fix the hole. Sorry no colored tape 😉 As I currently do not need the highest keys I will keep the challenge of opening the concertina and checking the reed for later. I fear I could damage some sealing. But not for long. I am quite interested what kind of reeds I will find inside, single ones or that kind where several reeds are placed on one plate. I am not quite good in my first steps on this instrument (alternating between left keys and right keys is really difficult to learn) but in my opinion this concertina has a nice sound. So thank you for your friendly welcome. I'll keep you informed. Peter
  6. Hi all, I'd like to start with the concertina. Currently I play the saxophone and harmonica (bluesharp). So I bought a used 48-key English Concertina for 200 Euro at eBay. The seller stated that the brand is Bastari and from my investigation this should be correct. All keys but the highest note on the left side are working on push and pull. The highest note on the left works only one direction. But I found that the concertina is not very airtight. The belly openes to its full length by its own weight within 15 seconds. After some investigation I found that the concertina is loosing air at some point between belly and the wooden end of the concertina. On pic 468 it is shown. Now my question is, do you think it is worth to keep and trying to repair the concertina by myself or should I sell it and seek for a used Jackie or Jack ? BR Peter
