nicx66 Posted March 24, 2015 Share Posted March 24, 2015 New Member here. i just purchased my first concertina and brought it in for repairs. it is a 30 button c/g anglo, unknown english made, 5 fold bellows, brass reeds in a radial reed pan, lachenal-type action. built 1901. the technician informed me that the instrument is, on average, 70 cents sharp and to get it back to c/g, he would have to remove more material from the reeds than he is comfortable with. i know very little about theory, however i asked if it was possible to tune up to c#/g#, so as not to be somewhere in between and he said that he could do that comfortably and keep it at A=440. I am curious as to any problems this could pose. any thoughts or input would be welcomed. my first instrument is a penny whistle and i have a c# whistle. my primary whistle (high d) sounds the c sharp with all holes open. if anyone is interested in pictures, i posted them in another forum, concertina history, titled Tidder Concertinas, Any One Know Anything About Tidders?
