TANZBAR player concertina for sale w/40 music rolls
Jere R. posted a topic in Buy & SellNew arrival now for sale - a fine condition TANZBAR automatic player concertina. These were made in Leipzig, Germany with most dating between 1900 & the 1930's. This instrument takes some musical & muscular coordination to get the best results, but it's loads of fun once you get the hang of it. And, its just in time for it to be a fabulous Holiday gift for your 'loved' one. Plus, this one comes with 40 original paper music rolls & a newly made roll rewind crank. Price - $1200.- plus shipping, which can be estimated if you forward me your address & zip. Shipment would be made immediately after payment is received (Paypal) &/or cleared if by CK. Our contact - amltd-at-voicenet.com Take a look at the video made today: https://youtu.be/MmPBhKPG8GM Thanks, Jere R.
Behind the Bellows
Bruce McCaskey posted a topic in Concertina Videos & MusicAlthough this is primarily accordion focused, the concertina has a brief presence. I've included this video here not so much for its limited concertina content as for the fascinating window it provides into the world of bellows driven free reed instruments and some perspective on their many forms. It's dated 2009, somehow I missed it then but Martin Donohoe of Cavan (Ireland) recently posted a link to it elsewhere that brought it to my attention today. Behind the Bellows
Salterelle “Bouebe” B/C Button Box SOLD
David Levine posted a topic in Buy & SellSOLD... I thought I’d have another go on the button accordion, having played one about 30 years ago. But I stopped playing the box to focus on playing the concertina (I also play flute and fiddle). I bought the Bouebe with high hopes but I have some shoulder issues that are making it too painful to continue. So I am moving this along. This is a practically brand new Saltarelle "Bouebe" 23 key/8 bass, Irish button accordion in B/C, with backpack style gig bag. It was purchased brand new last month, from Martin Quinn’s accordion store in Kiltgan, Co. Wicklow Ireland, and hand-carried to the US. Martin is a professional accordion player, repairman and dealer. He did a complete setup on this Bouebe, including tuning the reeds, setting the button action and changing the bass buttons to the "modern" style. It plays beautifully. I am reluctant to sell it but it’s too painful to continue to play it. It comes with new backpack style gig bag and two Saltarelle leather shoulder straps. This is an opportunity to get a fully set up, brand-new box at a reduced price. I will be happy to send more pictures. The Button Box sells these (when they can get a B/C) for $2300.00. Shipping Internationally, buyer to pay shipping and insurance fees. It looks just like this: https://www.eaglemusicshop.com/prod/but ... bouebe.htm
Caitlín Nic Gabhann posted a topic in Teaching and LearningHi all, My first time posting here! My name is Caitlín Nic Gabhann and I'm a concertina player from Ireland. I came on here because I've just launched a new website for learning the concertina online and I wanted to let you all know about it! There's a complete Starter Course on the website now - you can take the lessons any time you want, in your own home. Each lesson features: -- A video, and audio (both of which you can 'loop' a section for repeating - very handy for when you want to just repeat a particular phrase. Also - these are slow-downable) -- Staff and ABC notation (which you can download and print) -- Tips on technique from me (eg: which high D' to use) -- Notes on the Story behind the tune and more... There are also many other features on the website, such as suggested listening, tips if buying a concertina and. a free sample lesson. Here is the website so you can check it out: www.IrishConcertinaLessons.com - I recommend trying the free lesson to see if it's for you. I plan on adding an Improvers Course and an Advanced Course in 2019. Let me know what you think, Kindest regards, Caitlín
