Wee German Concertina.

Recommended Posts

Someone brought along this little 20 key German Concertina to the Session last night for us to have a look at.

 

Obviously cheap & cheerful & designed for either a child or a complete beginner, with a flimsy cardboard case.

 

Does anyone have any more info. on this model?

 

Cheers,

Dick

No info, but curiosity. You say "wee", but what's the actual size?

Standard Lachenal size Jim, the wee was to do with only 20 keys.

 

It was as light as a feather though & like most cheap instruments, these things probably discouraged more people from playing than they ever helped.

 

Little better than an ornament, I'd say.

 

Stephen Chambers has suggested that it was a Klingenthal product & having looked at photos of some of their Melodeons, I'd say he's hit the nail on the head, although this thing wouldn't be as well made even, as most of the other cheap German Concertinas I've seen. :)

 

Cheers,

Dick
