Morice3 Posted February 21, 2019 Share Posted February 21, 2019 (edited) Hi all, I'd like to start with the concertina. Currently I play the saxophone and harmonica (bluesharp). So I bought a used 48-key English Concertina for 200 Euro at eBay. The seller stated that the brand is Bastari and from my investigation this should be correct. All keys but the highest note on the left side are working on push and pull. The highest note on the left works only one direction. But I found that the concertina is not very airtight. The belly openes to its full length by its own weight within 15 seconds. After some investigation I found that the concertina is loosing air at some point between belly and the wooden end of the concertina. On pic 468 it is shown. Now my question is, do you think it is worth to keep and trying to repair the concertina by myself or should I sell it and seek for a used Jackie or Jack ?
