  1. Hello Tom Louw. You should contact "https://boeremusiekgilde.co.za/ " They could put you in touch with concertina players in your area. The website is being updated but there is an e-mail address for the secretary. They apparently have a branch in Pietersburg/Polokwane. "Beste geluk." Zak.
  2. There is a concertina playing in this band...........
  3. Hello Faf. I have mailed you a note. Hello Jim. Thank you for your kind words. I hope you are well. Cheers. Zak.
  4. Hi. https://www.fabbricaconcertine.com/eng/index.html#header5-3 This is the factory and they invite e-mail queries. The bellows are described as leather. Cheers, Zak.

  6. That is a photo of the Wheatstone "Mayfair" reed board. Discussion here....
  7. https://www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/ Try this. Good luck.
  8. Hello Jake. Thank you. Half of this recording was played on a concertina with a perspex reed pan and the other half on a concertina with a traditional wood reed pan. For comparison............ and a bit of guesswork required? Cheers, Zak.
  9. Your choice................one part played on perspex reed pan concertina ,the other on wooden reed pan concertina. Hope this works OK. Cheers, Zak.
  10. Very sad news, Ben. Condolences to the family. Sad Koot Brits concertina owner. Sakkie.
  11. Sold for £2900. Plus 19%. Tuning supposed to be Bb - F. IMO, needed some restoration.
  12. Lot 655 (shakespeare?) sold for £2600. Lot 656 Jeffries sold for £3200. Plus 24% buyers premium inc. vat. The shakespeare needed a big restoration. (IMO). The jeffries was in reasonable condition. (IMO) Lot 657 Wheatstone no. 19017 sold for £600.
  13. Morning, Another guess.........The letters predominately appear next to the word gauze.............perhaps the colour or type of gauze? Cheers, Zak.
  14. Hello Mr. Day. Quite a few on U tube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53gbVVmefVY Cheers, Zak.

  17. Only just returned from Bradfield weekend and wandering around the Dales. Many thanks to Mark and Joan for their hospitality and organisation at the weekend. As first-timers we would like to thank everyone for their wonderful singing and playing and friendly welcome. Thank you all, Zak and Linda.
  18. I too had the pleasure of hearing and seeing this lovely lady, Miyuki play english concertina at Lewes yesterday. I echo Valmai`s comments. Miyuki`s playing of variations of "Greensleeves" being especially delightful. Thanks to Jeremy. Zak.
  19. Attractively slow and sounds v familiar but can't nail it 'under..' 'Over the waters'? tks Leo When you are in love, Its the loveliest night of the year Stars twinkle above You almost can touch them from here...............etc. Mario Lanza. Originally: Over the Waves- 1888
  20. Hello Marcus, Look on U-tube for Japie Laubscher playing "Die ou Waenhuis". He was the composer of the tune. Unfortunately boeremusiek tunes were rarely scripted - just played and remembered. It is played in the key of Bb. Perhaps someone can transcribe it for you? Cheers, Zak.
  21. After comparing the quoted measurements of these buttons with my existing buttons, I found them practically identical. I purchased some to replace existing ones which had broken. I have now fitted some and find them A,OK. So much so that I am replacing all the old buttons with these new ones. At a £1 each, thats less than half the price I`ve been quoted elsewhere. (1953 Wheatstone Anglo 40 button). Cheers, Zak.
