Before Stagi acquired Bastari, Bastari made 46-button Hayden concertinas. See picture, below, on the right:

Stagi started making 46-button Haydens, but the proportions were all wrong, because they didn’t have the original specifications, only working from a picture:

I believe there would be a considerable market for an instrument like the original Bastari 46-button Hayden. Mine (in the first picture, above) is 30+ years old and despite the bellows patches and replaced wood veneer still plays very nicely.

 

Any chance?

Thanks for showing the photo comparison !

The Bastari looks less bulky and the buttons seem smaller. Will be interesting to see what develops.

Hi !!!  We have been taking over the concertina company since 2019.
I honestly didn't know that the hayden sizes were smaller.
We will see if in the future, something can be achieved.
thanks for the important information! Best  Regards!!!

Hello

 

It's interesting to see some pictures inside your workshop on Instagam. When I bought my Hayden 46 in 2021 I couldn't find any. I suggest you put some on the website for us older folk who don't use Instagram ;)
 

Please note that the link to the Hayden 46 on this page is wrong

The instrument is here:

It is not the size of the instrument that is wrong.  The serious problem is the orientation and spacing of the buttons.  Brian Hayden provided specifications which Bastari followed but Stagi ignored for some reason.

Yes, a smaller box would be nice, but that is probably a complete redesign whereas I hope that correcting the button orientation would only involve modifying the ends and the positioning of the action mechanism.

 

Added as an afterthought:

 

If you also have the designs and tooling from the original Bastari Hayden 46 button then please consider reviving that model exactly as it was made by Bastari.

Hi !!!!  Recanati is a small city, but very beautiful and interesting !!! We are near the sea and near the mountains  :D !!!

 

 

One of the prettiest places we've stayed in Italy, and away from the tourist mobs. We also drove into Castelfidardo and toured the Dino Baffetti factory.  We'll be back someday!

Oh, lovely, I have owned my Stagi ( once under Hohner name) for plus 23 years now..  and although there are small technical issues here and there, occassionally ( which happens to us all over time).. I like the strong tonal big sound of it.

The steel reeds, wooden veneered mahogany casing...

I shall keep a note of that new address details of new owner for reference that's for sure!

I am not certain what model number; but I believe they are still produced. It has thin metal face plate, mahogany veneered edges, and brown leather bellows. ( Steel reeds). You can see me using it on all my videos featured on this site ( which link to my youtube channel).

I briefly looked for your videos, but couldn’t find them. Could you give me a date or YouTube name ? Thanks
