  1. Sold at $179.00 Just a note for anyone interested. I've seen this concertina and heard Delbert play it. Its in very good condition and sounds nice as well.
  2. Greetings! My Stagi A-18 is going up for sale on Ebay today, April 18th 09. I will set it for 'No Reserve' to see how it does. It is in good shape, with hard case, all buttons and straps in good order. It is the brown model. The Bb (left hand) will occasionally 'flutter' and stick. I have done a gentle disassembly and check on it. Can do so again if it needs this. The file attached to this posting indicates where the 18 buttons fit in the English 48 button pattern layout. Regards, Del Stagi_A18_button_layout.bmp
  3. All FYI - going to eBay under my Delbert_wb account there. Thanks Del
  4. Chris, If I recall from past postings, the herrington is one of the square models, like Jim Besser also owns. Correct?
  5. Could you provide a little history, ie repairs, how long have you had it, who had it before you, any other particulars you'd care to share. Howdy, Happy, This is not my instrument, simply my notification. Elderly Instruments is a music store in Lansing, Michigan in the US with an emphasis in mail-order sales. They are a reputable company, but mau not be especially knowledgeable on concertinas. I would suggest that you call them or send an e-mail to ask them about it. Regards Del
  6. All, These are complex arrangements, multi-part in PDF, with MP3 to listen. This looks very promising. http://www.musicado.de/musicado/html/noten-download.html I would ask that someone record one of these tunes, and post for us to hear it - on a concertina Regards Del
  7. All, Just to close the circle, the Herrington Anglo I posted here and on eBay has sold for $1,075. I put it on eBay to ensure the world had a fair opportunity to bid. In the end it was won by my friend Cary Kuminecz, who lives approximately 20 miles from me. How interesting that it should sell this way. Cary has offered visitation and (occasional) playing rights. Regards, Del
