  1. Well I have had a reply, and here's what they say:-

    We have been very busy with the move to Spain. And it is not completely



    Our intention is to retake the development of the concertina and other new

    kits, but first we need to put the new workshops at standard production

    rates and deliver all the accumulated orders.


    Please, feel free to pass this information.


    Kind regards

    So watch this space.




    Great. Let's hope they live up to their name! Now, what are they going to call their new model? The "Spanglo", perhaps? :rolleyes:


    Thanks all. That's further than I got. Appreciate the information and look forward to see what come of it. For now a curiosity, but like any itch it needs to be scratched to be satisfied.



  2. At least these Chinese scams are easy to spot.





    I'm thinking you're right, but only for now. I suspect they will become harder to spot as they get mad for getting caught so often. Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame one me, fool me three times I deserve it. I wonder how long it will take for them to get better at hiding their real intentions as time goes by. One of the best ways is to hide it in plain sight. They could even use this forum to critique their efforts to see how fast they are caught if at all. I suspect if one in ten gets through then it would still pay for a scammer to try for the reward is great (I wish I thought of it, but I don't lean in those directions, perhaps too trusting). If they're really out to get me, does that make me not paranoid?? Or I'm paranoid and they're out to get me. I don't remember which goes first. I'm glad I'm only new at this concertina hobby, passion, avocation, etc. and not born yesterday.

  3. I've emailed them. Will pass on any reply I get.




    Thanks: found the website ok, however concertina or even koncertina has a listing but is blanked out with no link behind the word. Lots of instrument kits, but no concertina. Guess I'll have to keep looking an you never know, something will creep up sooner or later to whet my appetite and cure my curiosity.

    (can't spiel good)

  4. Which would take longer - concertina or harpsichord?

    To build from a kit... or to build a kit? :unsure:


    Clarification to original post

    Would possibly build from a kit. Wish I had the resources to create a kit and offer it for sale, but I don't.


  5. Still new but obnoxiously curious about lots of subjects. I don't know of, nor can I find a previous topic on this through the net search. Does anybody know if there is offered an assembly kit for a concertina, versus building one from scratch with plans. I don't know if I have the patience to search out all the parts and raw material to build one, but I might be interested in an assembly and finish type kit similar to the ones for violin, guitar, and banjo available in the US from some woodworking supply places. Thanks in advance for anyones input or suggestions.


  6. I do remember the text of this recently, or am I mistaken. This could be an amusing game with the sellers similar to "hide and seek" , if it wasn't so costly to take it seriously. Maybe "how many cats are in the tree hidden picture would be a better analogy. I'm still learning but practice makes perfect, even in observation practices.




    Again I realy DO appreciate the expertise on this forum and the patience of the more senior people with their knowledge teaching newbies like me and bring us up to speed in some of the pitfalls (senior meaning here longer, not older, I'm getting a late start on the age thing myself)
