  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.
  14. I think it is the ex-Salvation Army model made by Lachenal. You can see an additional screw hole on the left side end to hold a Band Lyre(music sheet holder). I have an instrument with the exact same fretwork pattern, and if the tuning is the same, it is originally Ab/Eb (and lowered to G/D). You may find the reed shoe shaped "English Make" trademark engraved on the right palm rest.
  15. Congratulations Gary. Fortunately I own the original CD-ROM and have a drive to read it, but are there any contents updates from the first CD-ROM to this book?
  16. Congratulations Gary. It must be the smallest. Not a concertina but even smaller than Alex Holden's Bellpush. Compared to this rectangular one my miniature anglo (2.75 in across the flats) looks far bigger.
  17. Appeared on ebay again. https://www.ebay.com/itm/334320809589
  18. I am amazed at that short waiting times. According to the archive.org, 10 years ago the waiting time was 4 years.
  19. Unfortunately I have not found any retail stores. As you may know, here's a few recording of her. https://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/music/live/crotty_kelly_T105-2.htm And one track from that CD: https://soundcloud.com/clare-county-library/the-stranger-or-pol-hapenny-1/s-buYga?in=clare-county-library/sets/all-music//s-pdsXF
  20. Pictures of the reedpans were posted on instagram. https://www.instagram.com/p/CZ2fGObI_Fj/
  21. If you refer to Randall Merris's article in PICA vol. 9, you will find examples of 8 buttons, but all hexagonal. I have never seen a rectangular miniature.
  22. Interesting to see two different shapes of hooked action in the 4th photo of the listing. And we can see no air release, so English or Duet ?
