  1. I think it's most likely what's sometimes called a "generic Chinese" or "cheap Chinese" concertina. Some of them are ok, but they are often poorly made and don't work properly. If you're looking for a new student/beginner Anglo, I would say you'd be better off with a Wren or a Rochelle.
  2. If you're definitely looking for a student/beginner Anglo, you might consider a Wren: https://mcneelamusic.com/the-wren-anglo-concertina-2/ . I haven't played one myself, but I've heard from people I trust that they play as well as a Rochelle but are a bit smaller.
  3. The Wren and the Rochelle are generally considered to be the best of the student/beginner Anglos.
  4. May he rest in peace. Here's a more detailed obituary from the Clare Echo: https://www.clareecho.ie/legendary-musician-chris-droney-dies-aged-95
  5. Very nice (both versions)! The Japanese video seems to gone from the Internet now (at any rate, I was unable to find it) so your version of their version may be the only one we've got now.
  6. I haven't seen one of these come up for sale in a while. Listing is https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTIQUE-Vintage-Wooden-Concertina-Squeeze-Box-Button-Accordion/353190897032 .
  7. There's one for sale on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nickys-Instructor-for-the-130-Key-Concertina-1979-Music-Accordion/402390132209 . This is an obscure system even within the Chemnitzer world. FYI, "130-key" means 65 buttons.
  8. New recordings on Lachenal (concertina reeds) vs. Morse (accordion reeds) by c.net member Jim Besser are here: .
  9. I mostly agree. (I play PA and piano in addition to Anglo and Crane concertina.) One correction: some free-bass PA's have a "stradella" left hand layout that's very similar to the left hand side of a standard PA and is not like a CBA layout.
  10. I hadn't seen one with this form of the name before. From https://www.ebay.com/itm/Concertino-Button-Box-Concertina/402367372759 .
  11. And here they are as links rather than embedded videos: https://www.facebook.com/mareka.naito/videos/3835247569824788/ andhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlqSV8skuLA .
  12. I had not been aware of this Anglo player (who also plays fiddle and harp) until I saw these videos, where she plays with the excellent guitarist Junji Shirota.
  13. She is Clémence Ricochon according to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnUqMi1dnT0 .
  14. This should work: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Anglo-International-Concertina-playing-around/dp/B000FILMN6
