    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. 30 button version of Wizard Anglo came up on ebay : https://www.ebay.com/itm/126082122733
  2. I play Irish music in a melodic style, but I don't note down finger numbers. Basically, I place my fingers in the C row and use the G row and accidental row as needed. However, this depends on the player's playing style; for example, according to a recent book by Dan Worrall and James Branch, the late Chris Droney basically played in the G row.
  3. Michael, according to your profile, your website is McNeela music. If this profile is true, I suppose this thread is not for advertising your own products.
  4. One from 1:05:40 looks like 7 mount (smaller model?) to me. By the way I cannot find the 4th player (resulted in the 1st position in the competition) playing in the video. I only see him leaving the stage near 38:20. Am I missing something?
  5. I learnt this tune over two decades ago, but I don't know the title. Could someone please enlighten me on this?
  6. By the way, I too own Connor with salvaged Lachenal reeds. It is not so fast/responsive but bellows and mechanisms are reliable. And I like the mellow tone of typical Lachenal, so overall I like mine.
  7. Somewhat off topic but... In the Kevin Costello's website http://www.concertinatuningrepair.com/about.html It says So I am not sure to what extent Ralf focuses on the German market.
  8. I was a member of the forum pre-2003 so it was a natural migration. I believe that the old (pre-2003) concertina.net was easily found by searching the Internet at that time.
  9. If you are familiar with abc notation, Michael Eskin's abctools has transpose feature. http://michaeleskin.com/abctools/abctools.html
  10. ConcertinaConnection used to sell them. https://web.archive.org/web/20170103035417/http://concertinaconnection.com/neck_cord.htm You can ask if they still stock it, or you may be able to make your own.
  11. The book "The Anglo Concertina Handbook of tunes and methods For Irish Traditional Music" written by Frank Edgley in 2001 has several pages devoted to ornaments (he called embellishments). It may be of interest to you.
  12. If I remember correctly, the early Lachenal anglo had slightly larger diameter bone buttons, is there any reference to that anywhere? (actual diameter and serial number of the change point)
  13. Thank you Stephen as always. The owner confirmed that there is not a leading 1, so it was 63990.
  14. Can I have an year estimate of anglo number (1)63990 ? It's not mine but currently in Japan. Rosewood ends, 30+2novelty bone buttons, C/G, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows. I am not sure there is leading 1 to 63990. Thank you in advance.
