  1. I've heard from the good people at Concertina Music - US Concertina Association. They are indeed active.
  2. Thanks. I value your opinion on this instrument. I ordered the CD of the German music played on the Carlsfelder. I have posted pictures of this concertina as well as the keyboard layout at this link: https://picasaweb.google.com/107234593005015077115/MyConcertinaELA1920s?authkey=Gv1sRgCOvM6t_Pl5L58wE# If you would like to take a look at the keyboard layout I've created directly from the instrument. Once on this website you can right click on the image and download to desktop. Then print it out. Thanks so much
  3. I've been told several different things about this instrument. I thought the general concenses was that it's a chemnitzer. Can you tell me what it is?
  4. Well, I did attached a keychart but I don't see it on the posting. If anyone would like to have it just let me know and I can email it to you.
  5. I have just purchased my ELA chemnitzer concertina - 51 buttons. I am looking for a recommended book to help a beginner get started. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I have created and attached a keychart for this model in case others would like to have it. It's tuned in the key of C.
  6. I was directed to the ConcertinaMusic.com website and liked it. So, using Paypal I registered and paid the required $15 annual membership fee. I was sent login information by email. I have been unable to login and when you try to ask a question on the website you can't do that either. Is this a legitimate website or is it defunct?
  7. I have a lot to learn. See pictures here https://picasaweb.google.com/107234593005015077115/MyConcertinaELA1920s?authkey=Gv1sRgCOvM6t_Pl5L58wE# [That's not an Anglo. It might be a Chemnitzer. Can you post some pictures?]
  8. Ok. I've purchased what appears to be a nice 1920s 51-button ELA Anglo concertina. I'm a life-long keyboard player so I know music, but I don't have a clue how to start to play this new instrument. Where do I go from here? Larry
  9. John: When one learns on the 20-button Anglo and then moves to the bandoneon are you speaking of all bandoneons or particular ones? I am just getting started and wondering if all bandoneons have the same 20-button pattern. <<So if you friend wants a training instrument, I'd suggest a 20-button Anglo. She'll get the hang of the push-pull scales, but she won't have to unlearn anything when she moves to the Bandoneon proper. Hope this helps, Cheers, John >>
