Gaucho Concertina?


Recommended Posts

Probably the most useless layout ever devised, with a very limited piano layout (on which you can't even use your thumbs to play because of the hand straps)...

 

It looks like it was made in Germany, possibly by Andreas Koch because they used similar quatrefoil holes in the grilles of some of their accordions.

Well, someone thought it was what they wanted----it shows as "Sold"


Yeah, that was me... that’ll teach me to lowball an offer. 😒
 

Through some weird and amazing post office quirk, it arrived today, and I really do quite like it, weird layout and all.

Do I recall right there's some kind of online "museum" of concertina variant photos? Any way to get this info over there for the record?

Have you visited this page? There is a vast archive of documentation on many types of concertinas, including extensive photos of the inner workings of each. Search "Jedcertina" with Ctrl +F and you'll find a concertina just like the aforementioned.

I did find the museum, but didn’t come across the page you linked; thanks! 
 

I have to say this one’s awfully simple to play!
