English Concertina -- Heatwhole 48 Key


Recommended Posts

If memory serves, Oliver Heatwole (no 'h' after the 'w') was the original U.S. importer of Bastari concertinas. Later, the Bastari brand was renamed Stagi.


The pics on eBay show a Bastari/Stagi.


The Concertina FAQ lists Oliver Heatwole as the author of an English Concertina tutor that was (at the time the FAQ was written) available from the House of Musical Traditions:


"English Concertina & an Introduction to Music - Oliver Heatwole,

63 pp, includes useful fingering charts and reed diagrams for

48 key Italian made instruments in treble, tenor, and baritone

ranges $4.00"
