Looking for a concertina to learn


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking for anyone in the Massachusetts or southern New Hampshire area who has a concertina they are looking to give up or sell. I want to learn duet, but I will use whatever is available. I would like to get one from an actual person because I would like to be able to feel it first.

 

Thanks

The above link takes you to the current listing, and the contact email is in there.

 

from my going back and forth him. I get the feeling he’d prefer to deal with people direct over email than to set up a “store” and deal with answering tons of question from people that have no intention of buying.

 

My understanding is that he is not a broker or dealer. He is guy that is trying to sell these off for the previous owner’s widow.

 

I may be way off here. But, that was my take on it. 
 

if you are in mass, he is in scotia NY. @ 2 hr drive. He was very open to having people come and check out in person.

I have one McCann that I've never got very far with, so I'm not in the market for any of those, but I am fascinated by why David had so many of them. Metal or wooden ends for different sound, and more or fewer buttons for versatility versus lighter weight, would make a total of four. Why so many more than that?

 

I will be interested to see what the Anglos are, when those are listed.

 

Meanwhile, back to the OP, can we assume that his need has been sufficiently addressed?

I would hazard a guess as to “concertina acquisition syndrome”..

 

it is a pretty common affliction among the members here..

Indeed! I have a mild case myself, but nowhere near David's; seven Anglos, one English and one Duet.

I think the clinical term for this is “Da Nile”..
