griffinga Posted February 2, 2013 Share Posted February 2, 2013 First of all - I'm not an experienced player and have only held three concertinas in my life. That said - this question is about a late-model Wheatstone (1950s) - wooden ends (30b anglo). It makes a very smooth and pleasant sound and I enjoy playing it. However, the handle on the right side interferes with my ability to strike the air button. Rather than being a bit off to one side of the end of the handnrest, the air button is about 1/2inch inwards from the end of the handrest and relatively close to it. Makes it awkward when playing on the lowerst (G) row. Is this arrangement common on Wheatstones in general, only on later models, or maybe only on this particular model?
