Tidder Concertinas, Any One Know Anything About Tidders?

Recommended Posts

A 20 button George Jones that has good pictures of the reed-pan, with what are clearly broad brass reeds similar to those in my Tidder. If anyone out there has any further information on these reeds and their manufacture, please feel free to share. http://www.ebay.com/itm/G-JONES-20K-BRASS-REED-ANGLO-CONCERTINA-RENOVATED-TUNED-CG-CONCERT-PITCH-/282292750506?hash=item41b9f588aa:g:5BsAAOSw241YUv0T

Broad brass or steel reeds were very much the norm in Jones' concertinas, especially his Anglos, and his advertising slogan was that they "Never wear out. Never go out of tune". :rolleyes:

 

But I'd say they were wider than any that I've seen in a Tidder...

Another e-bay listing with some similarities to other Tidders that I have seen. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/English-Concertina-for-Restoration-Old-/112440561486?hash=item1a2dfacf4e:g:W6oAAOSw-89ZPrQ2

 

Of note are:

1) the tan/brown valves

2) Mahogany ends with detailed fret work

3) soft wood action board

4) left side serial number-as noted in another post, the right hand action board stamp 'R' on Tidders has unique features.

5) brass reeds, broad, non-tapered type, similar to my Tidder anglo- as Stephen mentioned, not as wide as Jones' broad reeds

The stamping and general characteristics do remind me of the 'Tidder' that I have

I suspect that this offering is, indeed, a 'Tidder', though not certain without pictures of the internals. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Antique-30-Key-Anglo-Concertina-Probably-By-Lachenal-C1870/173713164481?hash=item28721c88c1:g:1k0AAOSwVcVcJ358:rk:4:pf:0

 

The one you linked to has the Lachenal trademark on it, so I would guess that it's a Lachenal:s-l1600.jpg
