  1. Hello, Time to repost this. This is essentially a high-end best-period Lachenal MacCann Duet with a slightly modified (Chidley) layout so that the pattern is uniform throughout by consistently repeating in all octaves rather than shifting in the upper octave. The difference is minor overall, but wonderful if you appreciate a fully isomorphic layout as I do. A notation chart is in the PDF, herewith. The concertina is in excellent condition with original glass buttons. In Summary:Vintage Lachenal 65b MacCann Duet in modified Chidley layout Hexagonal Wood Ends Glass Buttons Cry Baby and Whistle Wood Handles Leather Wrist Straps The original case in poor, but serviceable, condition as one would expect. I really do want to send this along to someone else who will appreciate it. Post-op prognosis renders it surplus. Please see the PDF, herewith, for photos, evaluation and documentation of work performed by Wim Wakker, and the previously mentioned notation chart. I may be contacted directly using: danersen@gmail Best wishes to all for an enjoyable and meaningful holiday season. Dan Lachenal Chidley SM.pdf

    Seeking New Homes For Unique Duets

    Per requests, separate posting for individual instruments have been created with a PDF that includes a short summary, several photos, and a keyboard layout chart. The 58b And 62b Jeffries are now spoken for. Hopefully, the Lachenal Chidley will also appeal to someone. My thanks to all who have inquired.

    Seeking New Homes For Unique Duets

    Thank you to each and all of you for your kind words of encouragement. Both of the Jeffries have new homes - on opposite coasts. Hopefully, the Lachenal Chidley will also have new home to be appreciated, played, and their potential explored by another adventurous sort rather than sit here dormant until eventually ending up in a indiscriminate estate auction. Be Well, Dan
  9. UPDATE: Saturday, 24th September The 58b and 62b Jeffries are now spoken for. Still hoping for a new home for Lachenal Chidley Duet - listed separately My thanks to all who have inquired. Much appreciation for all of your encouraging messages. Be Well, Dan

    Wanted Wakker A-4/a-5

    Hello, again, Jay-Jay, I'm pleased to hear that your Suttner acquisition has been successful. Though (as you know) my Amboyna A-5 meets none of your geographic requirements, it is (still) available - per our prior correspondence. For your (and others') convenience, it is this very one on the Wakker-Concertinas website: http://www.wakker-concertinas.com/A-5.htm Very few A-5's like this have been made as I understand it. No interest in trading as I am in the process of downsizing. Be Well, Dan

    Midi Would Be A Game Changer

    There may be a mixture of merit and wishful thinking in this proposition. I remember being given a plastic Flutophone as a VERY young child, and I played it almost incessantly and took it everywhere I could. Over time, I graduated to better instruments - eventually becoming accomplished saxophonist. It's remarkable how well that piece of black and white plastic performed and the enjoyment, satisfaction, and inspiration that it provided. On the other hand, The first mandolin that I encountered wa a POS mandolin and I was so discouraged by it that it was years before I picked up another - a friend's. Fortunately that was a quality instrument, I bonded with it immediately, and I have since enjoyed many decades of mandolin playing. All of this to say that there is a level of quality to any instrument that will generate enthusiasm and encouragement or frustration and discouragement. Where that "break-point" is in a concertina, I don't know; but I do believe that it exists among all instruments including concertinas - especially for a child who is initially being introduced to it and is unlikely to have the perseverance to overcome the shortcomings of an instrument not knowing what pleasure could lie ahead with a finer one.

    Wanted Wakker A-4 Model

    Hello Jay-Jay, I have been toying with the notion of parting with my W-A5. As-new condition. Now, please understand that I am in the USA, so it will be a bit of an effort to get it to you in Ireland - and, thus, it will have to be a final sale which may be an unnerving proposition. Please advise if your interest is serious enough for me to upload photos. Be Well, Dan
  15. ... Or spinning that another way - One that is difficult to put down rather than difficult to play.
