  1. I put this instrument up ten years ago. It's still sitting in my cupboard. I don't know what it is and I don't know what to do with it. It's a rosewood-ended Lachenal, serial number 72000-odd. 28 buttons, all on one end, only a flat wooded panel on the other. 12-fold bellows, about 7 3/4" across the flats. Most likely a one-off instrument, I can only surmise what it may have been made for ... perhaps an amputee soldier returning after the Boer (?) War, or perhaps a vaudevillian who could play concertina with one hand while doing something else with the other? Dating this one could be an important clue, because it might add weight to the returning soldier theory, but when does 72000 date from?
  2. Hi Just got a new/ used concertina.It,s great & having lots of fun trying to play it.Now the serious part, can anyone help, What is it exactly ? I bought it from an auction site so no information or history came with it.It has a Louis Lachelnal makers name & No; 10104, 48 buttons english, pretty inlay on the wooden fret work. I,m assuming it,s an older model,maybe an inimatable?. Thank you for any help on this.I,ve not attached pics. as the max is only 3.91mb. sorry.
  3. Hey guys, Many thanks in advance for the help as I am a complete layman when it comes to concertinas. I was just wondering whether anyone could tell me anything about this concertina I have attached pictures of. Helpfully it isn't marked anywhere with a maker but to my eye it is nice quality. The only thing I think I know about it is that its an Anglo-German set up and made from rosewood veneer. If anyone knows anything about this instrument then I'd love to hear it, Google has failed me!

  4. Here's a 38-key anglo made to look a bit like a Jeffries. It's 6.25" across the flats, so a little larger than Jeffries. The fretwork is like Jeffries but a bit coarser in execution. The layout of the buttons, levers and reedpan are the same as Jeffries, except that a few reeds are mortised into the reedpan instead of being screwed on. There's no serial number, but possibly a batch number and no maker's name. The most distinguishing features are (1) the air button, where an s-shaped piece of wire presses on a spring-loaded trapdoor and (2) the riveted action, which looks like a Jones action to my untrained eye. Any thoughts?
  5. Sorry for having to ask, but this concertina on E-bay isn't familiar to me. I don't think it is any of the better makes like Wheatstone, Crabb, or Lachenal, but it doesn't look like your typical Scholer, Bastari/Stagi/Brunner, or cheap Chinese. It does have a mother-of-toilet seat finish. It's here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/36-Button-Anglo-Concertina-/161050185760pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item257f56d020#ht_159wt_1255 Terrence
