  1. I just recently received my first concertina, a Stagi 30 button. When I first tried it, I realized that it opened by itself more than what I would have hoped so. It plays in tune and has a great sound but, I find that a lot of air is required to play some notes, especially the lowest and the highest notes.
    I have analyzed the bellow and it is undamaged. Is there a way for me to check if it is natural or if needs a repair?
    I have noticed that when I stop playing and I am ready to compress it ( by pressing the air valve) to close it, it remains squeezed and then relaxes by letting air in, is this normal?
    Here were I am from, the instrument is unheard of, should I contact an accordion luthier and ask for help?

  2. I am not from the US, I have a friend there and I have asked him to bring me a concertina. I have talked to concertina connection and they have none till august. I am desperate to find one and importing one from other country is expensive. I have a small budget, if anyone knows about a good deal or has anyone intrested in selling one, please contact me. I am mainly looking for something like a Rochelle 2 or Wren.

  3. I have finally got the opportunity to buy a concertina, I will ship it to a family member that will them bring it to my country.

     

    I will be buying a Wren 2 Concertina. I have told him that the instrument comes with a hard case but it would be good if he could put it inside a hard case suitcase and in the middle, sorrounded by clothes.

     

    He will not be carrying the instrument with him, it will be in the cargo compartment. Should I take any action like telling him to put a tape in the AIR button so the concertina can breathe in and out the air as the pressure changes?.

     

    Has anyone had a similar experience? if so, has the concertina worked properly? Should I take any other measures or will the instrument be fine?
