    I got my first concertina (Lachenal(Murdoch) anglo C/G) in 1999.Also interested in miniature anglo and finally got a Norman miniature in 2009 and Jones mini in 2016. I love Irish music played in old, relaxed style. Now I am halfway done with Japanese translation of Chris's concertina FAQ.

  1. The link above says (in the End Frets section) End Diameter: 401.5mm. It is about 15.8 inches. I'm not sure it is flat to flat or corner to corner though.
  2. I think this URL is newer https://www.concertineitalia.it/en/
  3. The musical priest, I suppose. https://www.irishtune.info/tune/1384/
  4. Is Sean Garvey of the Irish concertina Company the same person as the singer Sean Garvey (recently passed away)?
  5. Yet another one came up on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/334421058254
  6. I have one of them, probably, purchased in 1999 at Custy's. I remember hearing that John O'Connor or Pat O'Connor made it, but I could be wrong.
  7. Thank you Stephen for letting me know. I contacted Hobgoblin. As it turns out, the New Sherwood is a completely different model made by a different manufacturer under the same brand name.
  8. Have you heard of Duckling Concertinas? If 20 buttons are enough, GBP150 is just USD200. From what I have heard he uses a single washable paper for the bellows. https://www.flyingduckconcertinas.co.uk/ducklings.html
  9. Thank you Stephen for letting me know. I'm curious if there are any differences other than the reeds being made in the Czech Republic compared to the Sherwood with Italian reeds that once existed, especially in the action mechanism.
  10. Thank you Stephen for letting me know! Bellows and straps look decent. I am curious about action mechanisms.
  11. As I mentioned in the Current makes of concertina thread, it looks like Hobgoblin will be selling concertinas under the Sherwood name. https://hobgoblin.com/sherwood-black-end-30-key-c-g-anglo-concertina https://hobgoblin.com/sherwood-metal-end-30-key-c-g-anglo-concertina https://hobgoblin.com/sherwood-wood-end-30-key-c-g-anglo-concertina If I remember correctly, the Sherwood that used to exist was designed for Pete McClelland (of Hobgoblin) and was based on the Norman (successor to Ashdown). But I think these new Sherwoods are much cheaper and different. Does anyone have any information on them?
  12. I just noticed that Hobgoblin lists 3 Sherwood models on their website. https://hobgoblin.com/sherwood-black-end-30-key-c-g-anglo-concertina https://hobgoblin.com/sherwood-metal-end-30-key-c-g-anglo-concertina https://hobgoblin.com/sherwood-wood-end-30-key-c-g-anglo-concertina However, I believe that these are different from the Sherwood that once existed. They are cheaper than the Sherwood that once existed.
  13. Here is an explanation clip by Japanese Bandneon player (in Japanese though). Auto translation might work.
