Listings tend to describe ALL large square concertinas as Bandonions/Bandoneons, but they usually aren't, and this one isn't.


Neither is it a Chemnitzer, but it may well be a Carlsfelder...



Looks likely to be a Carlsfelder to me too, and from a good maker (ELA).  Not many people play Carlsfelders anymore.  You can hear examples of Carlsfelder playing at https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/detail/-/art/Various-Artists-Die-Konzertina-in-Franken/hnum/5715990 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x7gZUGfshE and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdgZxLqz6BM , etc.

wow thank you David, amazing playing on this vid !!! Two brains is needed to play like this.

I was sure Bach would sound good on this 😎


Only the one in the video is an octave-tuned tango Bandonion with a large 142-note (71-key) range, whilst the one on eBay is a Carlsfelder with a more-limited one of 102-notes (51-keys) .


Here's another Carlsfelder/Karlsfelder concertina in action:
