What our concertinas look like?

Recommended Posts

My latest.. picked up in a trade for my Anglo Norman..

48b 50s Wheatstone 3E.it is like new. But, as mentioned in another thread has a serious cigarette smoke smell. It sounds good. It plays well. But it is a TON slower than the 22.

Thought I'd share my concertinas, nearly 20 years worth of collecting! The Leggett just arrived yesterday.
Left to right, left shelf: Custom AC Norman C/G mini 13 button made in 2009, David Leggett C/G mini 16 button made in 2009, German G/D mini 20 button restored by AC Norman in 2007 or so, German unrestored Eb/Bb 20 button
Left to right, right shelf: Unknown restored Bb/F 26 button from Barleycorn, Edgley C/G 30 button made in 2003, custom Dipper almost-mini C/G 34 button made in 2009.
Feel free to ask questions about them!

For some reason it won't let me upload a photo of my concertina. It's a mahogany ended 'The Gremin' English 30 key. Am I correct in thinking that 'The Gremin' was originally made by Stagi? Many thanks. 

Gremlin was a Hobgoblin trademark.  Some of them were made by Stagi/Bastari but not all.  Details at https://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?/topic/4522-gremlinnorman/&do=findComment&comment=44802

I’m not going to post a photo of my one and only concertina. I am a total newbie. I was gifted an older Hohner 20 button ages ago and am just now getting around to trying to learn it. From what I have gleaned from my research, my concertina is probably the worst one out there but it’s what I have for now. Saving my pennies for a better one in the future.


Everybody’s instruments are so beautiful. Mine is gaudy red pearloid. 😛
