smeef Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 hello everyone, new user here. i'm also relatively new to concertinas but i have been practicing with an anglo for about a month and i can play one semi-intermediate difficulty song currently. anyways i recently got a rochelle 2 and i think i would do better with a duet than anglo so after a bit of research i settled on getting a stagi hayden duet 46 instead of trading in the rochelle and paying the same for a troubadour which has fewer buttons. in my research i heard that stagi used to be pretty hit and miss, but after the company was taken over by new owners, quality control got better and they're more consistent now. i had been emailing will wakker about how the trade in thing works before deciding not to trade up and told him i decided to go with a stagi instead because of more buttons for the same price and he informed me that because of how stagi actions are constructed, they need to be serviced more often, and that i should procure some replacement "rubber action connectors" so i'm prepared when something breaks to be able to fix it, and that stagi uses an action design he referred to as "rubber band action". i can't find any descriptions online about this or even pictures or diagrams of the actions and which parts he's referring to. i can open the instrument and look at it when it gets here but in the mean time i'd like to do as much research as i can on the matter. the only image i can find anywhere online of a stagi action is a picture in this thread where i can't make out which part is supposed to be the rubber action connectors. i don't know if it matters that the thread is about an english, while mine is a duet. do they use different mechanisms? i also don't know where i would get a set of these parts. he suggested that i ask the retailer i got it from, which is red cow music, but i don't see anything on their site about any replacement parts.
