"chipping" Concertinas ?!?!
Noel Ways posted a topic in General Concertina DiscussionI just read another stolen concertina story. I imagine we all are pained and even perhaps feel the loss when we hear of such incidents. I know I do. I have been thinking about something for quite some time now and suppose that it is worth putting on the table at this point. But the technology for identifying things has grown enormously. We "chip" our cats and dogs. We attach "tiles" to out key rings. There are now GPS units to track almost everything. And I am sure that there are other technologies that I am not aware of. AND, in most cases, these can be hidden or are at least unobtrusive. Has anyone ever thought of or tried using such a system with their concertina. For example a "chip" or tile or something else hidden inside the bellows, or under the inside lining of a concertina case? I was looking at one type of unit by the company: https://store.thetrackr.com/ Here, if you lose something, EVERYONE on who has the system will be alerted if it should come in close proximity to their iPhone etc. if they have the app. It is their unit, “bravo”; and as part of the bundle, there is a system for alerting the owner. I once had an incident where a student of mine lost their iPhone, and we went to a computer in the next room and followed the phone down the highways, into the streets, and into a home. We knew the city, street, and house into which unit went (thankfully, here, it was an innocent mistake and everything worked out just fine). There must be a cost-effective way of tracking lost concertinas !! Any thoughts?? And, thanks in advance.
Stolen C/g Edgley Concertina
CZ in AZ posted a topic in Buy & SellHi everyone, I am very sad to report that my Edgley C/G concertina has been stolen. I have filed a police report and called all the local Tucson shops. I am checking ebay regularly, but is there anything else I can do? This was my spare concertina, since I got my Carrol, so I did not play it all that frequently, but I still loved it and am really really sad about it. If you see this instrument, please let me know? It was a Wheatstone layout, modified to have C#'s as followed (rt outside row) Push/Pull: C#/C# C#/D# G#/G high-C#/high-D# high-A/high-F Thank you for any ideas on how to look for it!

Gospone posted a topic in General Concertina DiscussionHi - i am not sure if this is the right forum, but I had my concertina stolen in Zvolen, Slovakia on 1st August when visiting family, and I want to circulate the details to as many people as possible in case it makes its way back to the UK market. I am very attached to it! Any ideas? I have contacted several main dealers and the International Concertina Association. It is a 1928 Wheatstone English treble concertina, hexagonal with rosewood ends and the registration number is 29331. Please let me know if this is not the correct forum. Debbie
