    Let me get back to you on this, but many and varied around music, flight, motorcycles, Islay Scotch and once I start the list it could ramble on for quite a bit ... except for many of the current governments of the world.

    The meaning of the term concertina “size”

    Of course, we could also discuss the size of Chamnitzers .... 52 buttons, 12" across the flats, 16" side to side ....

    The meaning of the term concertina “size”

    Depends. My 69-button Crabb was 9 3/4" across the flats and, I believe, 10 1/4" side to side. I'd wager the 72+ Maccans are bigger. Thanks Captain Obvious.

    Wanted - Large Crane duet concertina

    That was what my 69-key Crabb had. But didn't Paul McCann have a 55 that went down to that G, or below? A Connor, or a Crabb variant?

    Cowboy Concertina - New Book?

    Is there any chance that Baxter Black has anything in the book, Gary?

    Pirate Songs for Concertina - new book!

    Having just bought a Herrington Anglo and needing learning material, I bought this book along with Gary's "Easy Anglo 1-2-3" and "Anglo Concertina in the Harmonic Style". I think that I had as much fun playing the Pirate songs on my Crane! These are the good ones, though I'd love to see "She's a Liverpool Packet" ... though I can probably make that up by myself. Thank you Gary ... I'm looking forward to your Western Songs book!

    For sale: Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet Concertina

    You know, Little John, I remember seeing that. Obviously a Chris Algar picture. I wonder where the mini went?

    Pirate Songs for Concertina - new book!

    Since I've just dipped my big toe into the Anglo world, I'll certainly get the updated version!

    For sale: Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet Concertina

    I'd be interested in seeing a mini Crabb Crane duet, if such an animal exists.

    If anyone is interested, there is a Chromatiphon that is in allgedly playable condition in Jessen, Germany. Here is the link: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/gut-erhaltenes-bandoneon/871250946-74-2366 He is asking 250 Euro. I ended up working a deal with danersen for his Bandoneon and since Stark is not true C-system, I'm deciding to pass on the Chromatiphon. Kind regards, Rod

    Dan or Ceemonster, did either of you come up with a layout for a Chromatiphone? I might have a line on one. Kind regards, Rod

    Wanted: Small Wheatstone Crane

    Hello, I'm looking for a small Wheatstone Crane. 35-key is fine, brass reeds are fine, hard case would be a plus. Kind regards, Rod
