New free reed instrument maker.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm making this post here because I have no better place.


          I'm only 15 years old, but one of my two main ambitions in my life is that I would like to make and start my own free reed instruments business. Since I discovered bass concertina 5 years ago I have started building and or designed projects before (single action 29 button G-bass concertina, Basse aux peids, 24 button anglo concertina and a few more.) but never got super far for no clear reason, just dwindling determination, or motivation, or lack of tools I suppose. But over the last half of my life I have been studying the intricacies of these instruments and have gathered a decent amount of knowledge about them. I noticed that there is a large lack of affordable bass concertinas so I am in the process of designing a rectangular 36 button single action C bass concertina using harmonium reeds for about 750 USD, I"m posting to see the kind of interest there might be in such an instrument.     


         I do plan to eventually expand my selection far beyond just that in the near future, but for now that it. 


Thanks for reading, Kane Fahl.

Looking at the standard note layout of instruments from Harry Geuns, if the low C is the cello low C, that would be an excellent match, dovetailing with the low end of both my C core and D core boxes......😊

Any specific layout you would like? How low would you like this instrument to go? If you are Interested PM me and we will discuss it further.


Thanks, Kane.
