I am a retailer of Stagi concertinas and can say that the quality is second to none. Long gone are the out of tune cluncky instruments, now just high concertinas that play beautifully.

The video is excellent and helps to show the real word "Handmade".

Well done to the filmmaker !

If so, then the company has a considerable image problem to get past. I still remember Rich Morse’s comments in these forums about The Button Box needing to overhaul and tune all their Stagi instruments before offering them for sale. One would think Mrs. Simona and company might do better to drop the “Stagi” moniker and rebrand.

There have been discussions about changing the brand name.

The one I recently bought was stamped 14 July 2023 inside. I had to return it, due to problems with notes not sounding, or intermittently failing. After taking it back to the retailer twice for adjustments, I felt that my confidence in the build quality was too reduced for me to feel comfortable keeping it. In other respects, I quite liked it, and I sincerely hope my experience was an exception to the norm.
