Martin Essery Posted November 24, 2022 Share Posted November 24, 2022 I have been browsing second hand reconditioned concertinas at places such as Barleycorn, as you do, and notice something which intrigued me. While many have repaired or replaced bellow, pads, action, reeds and such, some of them have very scruffy ends. Why? Sometimes it is on pretty expensive instruments. Surely it does not take much to tidy the ends up while you have it apart, refinish wood or polish metal? Do people like tatty ends because it shows their age, or do the repairers save the cost so the customer can clean it up if they want?
