This was my great-grandpa's old concertina, it was given to him by his uncle, so I'm not quite sure when it was made. A couple of my relatives have been trying to fix it up so it's ready to play. I haven't personally seen it yet, but apparently, it is missing a couple of keys, or possibly a couple of them are broken. We've been looking for someone to repair it, so if anyone knows a repair shop around Michigan, that would be a huge help. Does anyone know what kind of concertina it is? I'm like 90% sure it's a Chemnitzer, but it could be a Bandoneon, I'm just not sure what the distinction between them is. Also, does anyone know what the clarinet button and the bandon button do? Does it make the instrument sound like a clarinet? I've never seen buttons like that on a concertina. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Calling all you experts, please. Recently rebuilt an old girl from no doubt the late 1800's. No makers mark and the buyer thought perhaps it was a Nickolds. It has a riveted action, arms are round and flattened at the pivot point. Air pad is large and round. Reeds are steel in brass frames and they look the same as any Lachenal or like. The only mark is the number stamped in the frame work of 0045. Pitch is high 447? I left it that way and its got a great old sound. hope you all can shed some light..
