Looking for a Replacement Button

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My son is trying to find a replacement button for his great grandfather's Rigoletto Concertina.

 

Have done lots of searching on the internet - have come up empty.

 

Looking for some help.

 

See photos.

Are you certain the button is not inside?

Can’t hurt to ask at the Button Box (buttonbox.com), although they might not have it.

 

I have sent them an inquiry.  Thanks.

Maybe you could make one fairly easily from some wood dowel of the right diameter and and a few coats of white appliance paint.

 

If you cannot make a good aesthetic match then use the air release button for the missing note button and put the mismatch on the air release, maybe even paint it black so that it looks deliberately different.

Yes -- this is a good backup plan -- if we cannot find a replacement button.

 

Thanks.

Hi. (First time post). I have what appears to be an identical concertina. It is missing an entire reed block, but all the buttons are there. They may be slightly yellowed.  I’d be happy to pass it on to you for parts. (I’m in Portland.)
