joyinlinden Posted July 15, 2005 Share Posted July 15, 2005 Hello, I have discovered this Tanzbar Player Concertina instrument in my Grandmother's attic. I found little information on this. I do not know how to play it although I found it does work. The unit consists of a concertina with reeds. The instrument is operated by perforated paper rolls measuring 4 3|8" wide. 15 rolls alltoghther. Measures 15X9X11" 38X23X28 cm. I would say the condition is fair. The box it came in is very fragle, as it sat in the attic for years. Still closes fine. I am thinking it was made in 1920. Make with Walnut inlaid sections.

The paper lable has been removed. Any offers or information would be greatly apprieciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
