I attached an video and two screen shots. Please have a look to upper left images. There are two cigarrette packet size , concertina buttoned , mouth wind powered instruments.

 

Can anyone tell me the name of these wonderful instruments ?  1161200891_concertinamouth.thumb.png.adbfea7765a77c22e711113cdc365524.png1161200891_concertinamouth.thumb.png.adbfea7765a77c22e711113cdc365524.png. I can try to buy and construct with one with bandoneon reeds , if there is a reed or reeds..

 

Thank you,

That is a symphonium, which Charles Wheatstone developed prior to the English concertina.  They are not common.

More symphoniums can be found on the  Concertina Museum website. The photos on the right hand side will scroll if you put your mouse pointer over them, and you can see the insides.
