    Great! I'll keep in-touch with you. I'd have to take some money out of my bank account to make this purchase, so I'll keep you posted on when I'm able to do so. :)

    I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this beautiful instrument!

    Good. The most reliable way to keep in touch with me is e-mail: gregor.markic@gmail.com. This mail is also my Pay-pal reference. This Swan concertina should suffice for a beginner for a year or two. Later an upgrade is sensible. An experienced player told me once: an instrument superior to your abilities will teach you a lot, if it is inferior you will learn nothing new. It took me some time to realise how right he was.

    Would you be willing to ship to the US? I would pay for shipping, but I would like to know how much that might end up being, if you have an estimation.

    Yes, I can ship it to the US. It's around 50€. Not much more than to EU.

  3. Discounted for further 100€ since I really don't want the beauty not to be played. Additionally I badly need money for a GD instrument. Extremly convenient price!!! Price for new 2000+ euros!

     

    Earlier this year I bought a concertina in this forum. It is less than one year old.

    It's a very well made fast player. This was my first quality concertina and after playing different cheap instrument I can tell it has an exquisite outstanding sound. State is like new.
    Featuring : 

    - Stainless steel end plates 
    - Action riveted
    - 6 fold leather bellows with decorative papers
    - Reeds Tipo A-Mano Voci Armonichie Italian made steel reeds
    - Wheatstone Layout
    - Solid box

     

    Concertina is sent from Slovenia, I am asking 1400 euros + sending costs (EU = approx. 40€)

    Hello, Joachim. My concertina is C/G and yes, I played Edelweiss. I'm flattered if you like my playing, I consider myself to be a beginner though. If you send me any musical ideas, it would be honour and pleasure for me to try and play it even more so if you learn something from my playing.

    "This was my first non-hybrid concertina..."

     

    I don't want to stomp on your thread, but your Herrington is indeed a hybrid (although a very high-quality one).  It uses superior accordion style reeds rather than individual, traditional concertina reeds.

     

    Still, a very nice instrument and a very fair price.

    I'm sorry to hear that. You see, I gave it reviewed to my friends in musical instruments workshop:

    https://www.melodija.si/servis

    ... and they told me the reeds were "single" not "double". Now I know not what to think (not having skills to open it and see for myself) I only know that the sound of this concertina is well above anything I've heard until today.

  7. Earlier this year I bought a concertina in this forum:

    It's a very well made fast player ...
    I am only selling it because I bought a far more expensive concertina.
    This was my first non-hybrid concertina and after playing different instruments I can tell it has an exquisite outstanding sound.

  8. I stumbled upon this instrument and I could not resist buying and trying playing it. It has obviously never been played, the leather straps are intact. Surprisingly all reeds are still well tuned. The sound is toy-ish, but interesting. The action of the buttons is better than modern day chinese 200€ (which was my entry level choice). I love it to have had this experience and I believe it would be a nice piece for a potential collector. Possibly a first instrument for a beginner. Will sell it for 300€.

  9. I believe it might recall a smile on some faces, even if one doesn't understand the language. The simple fact of multiple identical rhymes and the shere stupidity of the meaning of the song should suffice 🙂

  10. Hello, everybody. I stumbled upon this tutorial:

    https://www.instructables.com/Make-Your-MIDI-Accordion/

    And I had an idea which requires none construction skills, yet much more programming knowledge. My idea: why not use a much superior computer power than an Arduino- something like this:

    https://uedata.amazon.com/High-Tech-Place-MoreFine-M1-Finger/dp/B013MNTMYG

    to which two numerical keypads would be attached:

    https://www.amazon.com/Numeric-Jelly-Comb-Portable-Computer/dp/B01E8TTWZ2

     

    5 buttons 3 rows should be enough for the usual button layout

    while the bigger ENTER button should be good enough for the "air control" button.

     

    Do we have in this community an able programmer?
