Chris Ghent Posted January 14 Share Posted January 14 The concertina I asked for help identifying is clearly a Jones. I have a couple of questions I hope someone can answer. 1) Was it common or indeed did it ever happen at all that a Jones 20 key would have bushed buttons? 2) How good were Jones reeds? I know this might be hard to answer without a reference point but perhaps the answer to this question might suffice; how does a Jones 20 key concertina compare to an equivalent Lachenal? Would they be as loud or as fast, or more so? There are reasons for these questions In a few weeks I am giving a short exposition on the subject of a 19th century Australian concertina maker. Deciding what is his work and what is someone else's is tricky..! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
