  1. Edgley Heritage (#439) 30 buttons C/G Layout Wheatstone (purchased September 2020) like new! Also a Lachenal C/G 32 buttons Layout Wheatstone (purchased June 2022 at Barleycorn UK) -full refurbishment fitted with new pads, valves, straps, bellow and bushings; bought from Barleycorn UK . I’m from Montreal, Qc; we can meet in a session (Hurley’s, McKibbins…) if you’re coming in Montreal. I can also make a short video. No urgent sales on my side. Here are some pictures. *Private message for more informations.
  2. Hello! I'm really interested for the Thomas Concertina - #7 – 31-button, seven-fold bellows, small size, C/G – acquired 4-14-2010. I try to find a small one exactly like this! Thank you to answer me Linda-Lyle Aubry
  3. For my Edgley (in 2020) 450$ CAD deposit + 6627$ (includes the pelican case (450$); *Prices vary according to personal requests. Frank Edgley is an excellent facteur de concertina! He's really meticulous and competent. Still love my Heritage model. If I sell it (not sure yet), it’s because I just bought a Lachenal 32 keys; a different sound that I’ve been dreaming about for a long time.

  5. I will have an Heritage 30 Keys maple steel end/reeds (2020) Frank Edgley to sell ! À suivre!

  7. Bonjour, je recherche un anglo Lachenal 30 Keys CG restauré. "steel ends", steel reeds. En bon état, prêt à jouer. Je suis à Mtl, Qc, Canada. Merci Hello, I'm looking for a Lachenal 30 Keys CG Steel Ends, refurbishedin good condition. I'm in Montreal, Qc Canada. thank U
  8. Thank you, Dave for your opinions! As you tell here, I decide to not turning to a Lachenal (as I wanted first) because of what you say and also because I don't want (I couldn't do it by myself) open each years (or seasons) and, finally, prefer to buy a new one, but good one! Without having an exceptional play on the concertina, I have been training since 2006 on an Edgley Celtic Lion concertina that I love very much! However, I had the opportunity to play on the concertina of a friend who have a Lachenal and the sound was …"something else". I decide to turn again with an Edgley; this time the Heritage model; I had the opportunity to hear musicians play it on video and the sound seems to me to correspond perfectly to my expectations. Edgley is in Ontario near Québec. It's a good point, here, if I need to make repairs on it! Personally, I did not excel in the technical details of concertina “building” however, on Frank’s website, the details of the technique he developed to manufacture his latest models (Heritage) are very well explained; he created his own technique: see on his website: “…these concertinas are made in the traditional way, with separate hardwood reedpans. The reeds are top quality traditional concertina reeds with steel tongues and brass reed shoes and are very similar to the reeds used by Wheatstone in the late 1800s and early 1900s ---the Golden Age of Concertinas. These reeds are dovetailed into the reedpans in the traditional method. Each reedpan is laid out and cut by hand, with the reed chambers laid out in a radial pattern, a method known to produce a strong but mellow tone”. All those who have a Heritage concertina made "Frank Edgley" are unanimous: it is an exceptional concertina that has nothing to envy to the Lachenal, Jeffries of this world. Well, now, I’m waiting… until spring. But I’m sure that the wait is worth it!
  9. Thank you! I'm so looking forward to having in my hands the Heritage concertina that Frank Edgley is making right now, especially for me. He is a magician. He builds real little jewels! I have no doubt of the happiness that I will have to hold it between my fingers! And, of course, it will be a pleasure to give you my opinion when I'll spend a pm, in the spring, in Dublin, trying the typically Irish concertinas!
  10. Hello again, I was thinking about a new concertina purchase; I was hesitating between a Heritage Edgley or Vintage (Lachenal, for ex.)...Well after serious consideration, with your help, I decide to buy a second concertina from Frank Edgley (Ontario/Canada). I don't know Frank personally but friends of mine, yes. Everyone agrees that he builds concertinas like a true artist, an exceptionnel craftsman. I have complete confidence in him! I look forward to receiving it... in spring! Can't wait!!! I'll be for sure in Dublin, end of May; maybe I'm gonna sell the Celtic Lion I got (since 2006)! Never had problem with it. In excellent condition! I'll see!
  11. Well, thank you Hielandman! But, finally, after serious consideration, I decide to buy a second concertina from Frank Edgley (Ontario/Canada), but this time a Heritage model. I don't know Frank personally but friends of mine, yes. Everyone agrees that he builds concertinas like a true artist, an exceptionnel craftsman. I have complete confidence in him! I look forward to receiving it... in spring! Can't wait!!! I'll be for sure in Dublin, end of May; maybe I'm gonna sell the Celtic Lion I got (since 2006)! Never had problem with it. In excellent condition! I'll see!
  12. Yes! I just took a look! Kensington: really really nice. But 3500$ US, for me (CAD) around 5000$... a little bit less than an Edgley but, his from Ontario, Canada...no customs to pass. Thank you for trying to help me in my research, Bill!
  13. I won't do that (my own maintenance). But I know such great musicians here, in Mtl who can do that. But, they are accordion's player. Except a friend who was working at the Button Box in the pass, in USA... Anyway, when I read your comments (Bill, you), I'm not sure about purchase a Lachenal or others kind of vintage concertina. I don't want to open or repair it, each year. I have an Edgley here. I really like it. But, it was built with accordion reeds. And I'm looking now for one with the concertina reeds. With the "traditional sound", if I can say that. I send Frank an e-mail. He has now this model Heritage made with concertina's reeds. It's a little bit expensive but, I'll think about that. He's in Ontario, not so far Mtl, in case I need some repairs. I never had to do it for the one I have from him! Great construction and beautiful design. I'll see!
  14. Thank you for your feedback! I know several musicians here in Montreal, as well as the music sessions around them, but it is rare to see an Anglo concertina musician! Of course, there is the option of turning to a friend musician/almost a real accordion maker (there are several here). Thank you!
  15. Hello, I need this information before choosing between a new one or a vintage concertina: when you buy a vintage anglo concertina (e.g. Lachenal), is there usually a guarantee? Does anyone know where it can be repaired or restored when you live in Quebec, Montreal, Canada? Thank you!
  16. Hello Jim! I really appreciate your comment! It helps! I send an e-mail and a word on Messenger yesterday to Frank. I’m waiting for his answer. Thank you!
