My new concertina (a quart in a pint pot)


Recommended Posts

Here it is, then, Alex Holden's number 10! It's everything you would expect from Alex: beautifully crafted, gorgeous to look at and wonderful to play. He's just posted a blog about making it, which includes a video compilation of some tunes and an explanation of the layout. You can see it here.

what's it measure across the flats?

 

It's 6 1/4" AF. The size reference in the title alludes to its having the note range of a 48 button English baritone in a box the size of a standard treble.

As a thirty-five year EC player I learned a lot about the duet from your great video!

 

That's good to hear! I started on the English about 40 years ago before I'd heard of duets. The Crane is similar in some respects to the English which made it the natural choice when I changed over.
