  1. My English Concertina (stagi tenor treble 56 key) lost one of its metal buttons. The lower part broke. Is there any way out there to get a new one? Or is there hope, that the original button can be fixed? I include a picture of the button and a picture of the action I finally managed to open, so you can see, what I need. If everything fails I may use the button of a rarely used note to fill the gap… but of course, I would prefer it to be "really" fixed Any hints? PS: Don't buy this stagi model! Really badly made.

    Stagi Anglo 30 Key Dualtone

    Want to sell this concertina bought 20 years ago. Not used very much, but a scratch in the leather where the bellow is attached (see photo). Perfect condition. Hardcase included. I am living in Denmark. Price 200 euro + shipping.
  3. I am selling my Stagi W-15-MS which I have had for a few years. Right now it's in great playing condition and tune. When I first obtained it, there were the usual complaints...sticky buttons, some duff notes, etc. I gave it a make-over which included renewing the button retainers, taper-reaming the button holes to smooth and insure easy button travel, replaced the silvery grill 'cloth' with a fabric material, and did a thorough retune and re-set of reeds. I also lowered the button action a bit and enlarged the air button vent. This model features each reed plate being fastened by a screw, rather than waxed in. The instrument is now quite enjoyable to play, has a sweet tone, and has been my travel companion on many trips. . Compression is excellent, has the typical leather covered bellows, all intact, no leaks. Comes with a rather pedestrian, but clean and serviceable hard case. Would be a good instrument for a starter, or a good travel box. I will also offer a limited approval time (TBD), if not satisfied, buyer to pay for return shipping. Asking US$350.00 + shipping. Contact me via PM, and ask for a quote on shipping, or any other questions you may have. I live in the Northwest USA. Donation to the site will be made if sold through this medium.............................................................................................................................................. See photos attached, and sound sample (video link). Reason for selling: I have reached a stage in life where I am compelled to simplify and reduce my herd of instruments significantly. To this end, I have been slowly parting with some melodeons, stringed instruments, and now the Stagi. I also have a very fine hand-made Tedrow that I will retain as my sole concertina.

  4. I've picked up my mini EC lately....so cute....the 18-button Stagi. Today I discovered that the song Wildwood Flower (folk song) fits nicely, played in the key of F, and I can easily add a harmony to it. What else could I play, with an added harmony? Any ideas? Doesn't have to be a folk song.... I've been playing a cha cha thing on my piano accordion, in fact, and that's got me hooked, though I just don't think a cha cha will work out on the mini EC, ha ha.... I love that the mini Stagi is so nice and loud, for being such a small thing.
  5. It's a Stagi English A 48 S Tenor without decorations, it has a stagi bag with it. The bag cost about 60 USD(but I paid in SEK, so it's approximately), the concertina itself cost 653 USD(paid both in SEK ofc) It's barely played and I think it had decent quality, but I can't say since I do not know much about these. Been in it's bag for most of the year. The reason for selling it is not due to any disappointments with the product but because I can't play it very well at all. I am a keyboardist and I'm not very experienced in that area yet either. So I'm probably going to buy a melodica to "replace" it, being a portable free reed instrument as well, difference being that I know how to play keys and have had experience with playing melodicas before. If anyone has any other idea of where I could ask on the net about the price, I'd be happy to receive a link to the place. EDIT: The title was cut off, this thread is asking about what price I should sell it at.
  6. This is a stock C/G Stagi W-15 LN that was "Turboed" by Bob Tedrow of Homewood Music. He put brass bushings and brass buttons on the stock concertina as the plastic ones were prone to stick. I'm not sure, but I seem to remember reading that he did something to make the action work smoother also. I never played a stock Stagi, so I have nothing to compare it to. I sent it to the Button Box to refurbish the bellows at which time they put leather patches where needed (see pictures and video). Takes 10 full seconds to expand from fully compressed with no buttons pressed. The screen between the grill and the reeds on the right hand side is pushed in a little, but does not affect the sound or function of the concertina. I've played it for 8 years and have upgraded to an Edgley Professional (love it, by the way!) This is a great beginner/intermediate instrument for a good price. New W-15 LN goes for $900 at the Button Box. I'm asking $500 or best offer before I put it on eBay. See pics and YouTube video HERE A few tunes HERE
  7. I have a Stagi where the finish has a milky white blush: Has anyone else experienced this? Do you have a fix for it? From reading up on the Internet it seems that this is probably caused by excessive moisture trapped in the finish and that sometimes it can be removed by rubbing the surface with whatever was used as the reducing agent (aka. thinner) in the original finish. Interesting to note that the handrails have not gone milky so presumably these were sprayed on a different occasion. I have not tried this yet as I don't like messing with solvents inside the house and it has been too damn cold to work outside. I am also not sure what solvent to use. I am trying avoid sanding off the finish as the layer of veneer is really very thin. Don.
  8. Hello, I just bought some concertina bellows for my stagi concertina and unfortunately they don't fit. The with across the sides are the same but it has an extra lip. That is problem number one. The next problem is that holes are too big on the new bellows. Thank you for looking, Badok88

    48-Button Stagi English Concertina For Sale

    So, this concertina has a lovely tone. I had purchased it, thinking that it would be my thing, but instead fell in love with the piano accordion, meaning that this little beastie has been sitting in it's case, having only ever had a few tunes played on it. It needs a more loving home! Technical info on it: It is a 48-button Stagi, Model A48-S English Concertina Treble Range (it's not super high and squeaky like a lot of them--it's got a nice, rich tone to it). 6-fold Leather Bellows Steel Reeds Weighs a little over three pounds Six sided Made in Italy Mahogany colored wood, with a herringbone edge Leather thumb straps Metal finger braces Highest note is C, lowest is G Like I mentioned, this instrument really hasn't ever been played, so the all of it, bellows included will last a good long time. I'm asking $750 for it. It comes with a black hard case with a handle, which is also brand new. I've put up a Craigslist posting for this, so that you can have a look at the photos, since my file sizes are too large to load here. Here's the link! http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/msg/4152374121.html
  10. I picked up this concertina on Ebay. It seems to have been made by Stagi for Matusewitch Associates, New York. Is anyone familiar with these instruments? It seems to be higher quality construction than the 1970-80's Stagi that I've seen. The box appears to have been stored in a basement and will need some restoration. The hardware is corroded but most of the reeds are in good shape. I'm trying to estimate how much I should put into it. I purchased it for $179. Thanks

    Stagi Concertina C/g For Sale - Uk

    30 button C/G Stagi Concertina for sale Faithful Stagi for sale, my starter instrument. Sale includes standard concertina case. Works well and in very good condition. Has some of the usual Stagi vices, eg: bellows not finished very nicely, not 100% air tight (but close to 95%), action on some buttons not perfect. I have moved on to a Norman, but this will do a good job of getting someone else going with the Anglo. Sale from Peterborough UK. £275 ONO seem reasonable?, roughly double this new.
