Square Bastari

Recommended Posts

Right now on ebay there is a square bastari with 40 buttons.

What is it? I did a search on square bastaris and found a reference

to a square bastari that was a hayden duet? Is it a hayden?

If so, the seller says that the buttons give a different note on

the push and draw. Is it just severly out of tune? Can the reeds

become so outo tune between the push and draw that they sound like

different notes?

Going around the room in turn at a certain concertina club meet at the weekend, two of the makers/menders were commenting on accordion reeded concertinas, especially Bastari. The next person whose turn it was to play, put her concertina back in the box. Guess what the poor woman was playing?.
