    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.

    Prayer (classical feel)

    I found a photo of the concertina on his website. http://akira-kita.tumblr.com/use
  7. I once heard that many vintage Ab/Eb concertinas were tuned down to G/D (I own one). I, too, am curious if it had negative effect, including retuning from old pitch to modern pitch.

    Bellows Card Depth

    I cannot measure actual card size from outside of the bellows, but Frank Edgley instrument has deeper bellows than Lachenals here.

    Concertina motif accessories

    I asked that company about overseas shipping. Unfortunately it is not possible at now. But they said they had similar inquires and they are considering, so maybe in the future...
  10. Japanese company "Jabara Party" sells concertina motif accessories . Double scroll fretwork seems to be based on Jones one. I recall Alex Holden made beautiful metal earrings in the past. These Japanese ones are made from acrylic.

    C# within 20 button CG Anglo.

    This is slightly off-topic but Red Cow Music now lists 24 button Lachenal on sale. If this is in C/G it must have c# on the extra button.

    Perspex reedpans

    Found this on ebay. It says " The reedpans are made of Perspex " and " Perspex reedpans will not warp in fluctuating weather or humid conditions. " Perspex is a kind of acrylic. Is it good for readpan material ? Did anyone try this except for the late Koot Brits? Edited to add: I searched this forum with the word "Perspex", I understand that Willie Van Wyk also made Perspex reedpans.

    Raised end shape

    Just found this one on ebay. Raised portion is rectangular shape and it is new to me. Is it normal for Jones instruments ?
