  1. From the document and the other post, it seems like most confiscations are happening in the EU, so hopefully my Japan-America trips will be ok. The backpack would be a good shout. Do they sell them in Japan? I'm assuming that you left the 3 without the case, but do you think I could squeeze one hard case in there?
  2. Good to know about the word "concertina". One would hope that common sense would prevail in that situation, but I'll be sure to call it a small accordion.
  3. Hello. It looks like I'm going to have to make a couple long-haul trips by airplane in the next year, and I'll probably be away from home for a few months at a time. I'll probably be taking my brand new swallow concertina along for the ride, since the alternative is leaving it in a hot, humid, moldy tropical summer for a few months. Are there any special precautions I should be taking when travelling with a concertina by plane? I plan to treat it like any other piece of valuable luggage (take it as a carry on in a hard case, store it on the seat next to me, etc...), but should I be worried about stuff like the humidity in the dry airplane, or the regular bumps and jostles associated with putting something through airport security? As a new player, I don't quite have a handle on what kinds of treatment these instruments can handle.
