Info on an ELA Bandoneon
Mandagh posted a topic in Concertina HistoryI inherited two Bandoneon from my grandfather. Both were brought over from Germany pre WWII. The “newer” of the two is an Arnold obtained by my grandfather around 1924. The other is older and is an ELA. I know they went out of business in 1910. I was hoping someone might know a bit more about these ELA bandoneon. Like approx how old it might be and maybe a value. The two are going into a museum exhibit next month and the museum would like to know how much they are worth. I can find info on the “newer” one but not the ELA.
For Sale: Wheatstone Aeola
lyn posted a topic in Buy & SellUnique Wheatstone Aeola 48 button Pre-WWI English Concertina in the Key of C Treble range (from G below middle C, to C three octaves above middle C). Falling within the "dear years" and "lost years" period of the Wheatstone company, this Ebony ended concertina has unique fretwork detail, and has a full rich tone. The instrument shows only very minor cosmetic blemishes and is in superior playing condition. The bellows are in excellent shape and all buttons are responsive. Concertina was completely looked over and serviced by the Button Box in 2013. Instrument was part of the collection at Barleycorn Concertinas until 2010, at which time it was imported to the United States. For a demo of the instrument, see the following YouTube video: https://youtu.be/DgymVJ-buSo Available for Skype calls for interested parties. $3600
