  1. My new Wakker Parnassus Tenor-Treble. One mod is I substituted the D#3 for a Bb2 on the left side.
  2. I made a 1 row melodeon at a workshop conducted by Emmanuel Pariselle about 5 years ago. Emmanuel runs melodeon construction workshops in France and UK in which he guides the building of 1 row or 2.5 row melodeons. Well worth attending one of these courses if you'd like to know how to build a melodeon - and the resultant instruments are extremely good.
  3. Interesting thread - and thanks for posting. I'm custodian of 2 concertinas that once played in Astley's band, the Oldham Concertina Band - a Wheatstone bass and a Lachenal New Model 56 key baritone.
  4. Hi Richard Do tell us about the new Wakker when you receive it. I received my new Wakker Parnassus TT about 4 weeks ago - it's a terrific instrument.
  5. Thanks - I didn't have time to look up 1950s model numbers.

  8. I once had a set of bolts made, along with corresponding receiver plates, by Wim Wakker.
  9. Many years ago I needed an insurance valuation fairly quickly - I drove to Hobgoblin in Leeds to have this carried out. I rang ahead of time to ensure their concertina specialist would be available. I think they charged me a modest fee for the service.
  10. It appears it was bought by a leading concertina dealer.
  11. Take a look at this https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/arthur-johnson-and-sons-auctioneers/catalogue-id-ibart10799/lot-d1f56b86-294d-477c-9aec-ac3f010a7265?utm_source=auction-alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=auction-alert&utm_content=lot-image-link Looks like someone has grafted a 20 key Anglo onto much larger bellows. A useful idea

  13. Not concertina per-se, but this printer can be used for fabricating concertina parts, cutting fretwork, etc. I'm selling a brand new, unused, Snapmaker 2.0 A350 with enclosure and loads of accessories. Still sealed in original boxes. Some features: • Linear Modules • 3D Printing Module • Laser Cutting Module (1600mW, Built-in Camera) • CNC Carving Module (ER11 Collet) Here's a link to the manufacturers website.
