This beautiful English concertina is for sale. It was previously owned by a gentleman who was a collector more than a player. He has, unfortunately, passed on and his widow has it up for sale. Please contact me for details. It is in pristine condition.
Here is the curly maple #355 I mentioned in my previous post. It has been "studio tuned", and is ready to go. The bellows is very supple, and it plays with smooth and easy action. Please contact me if you want more details.
This concertina was SOLD the day it appeared on this blog.
Here is an excellent opportunity to get one of our Professional Model instruments with almost no waiting and at a good price. It is a C/G Wheatstone and has the Edgley "angled reedpans." It plays extremely well with a very airtight bellows. It was made from one of the most highly figured curly maple wood I have ever been able to acquire. It comes with a basic padded Storm case. I received it in trade for a new Heritage instrument yesterday. Please contact me at 519-991-3100 for more details. Photos to come soon.
I have been asked by the widow of a concertina collector to sell these instruments:
-English System by Holmwood. I believe these instruments were made in the late 20th century. The previous owner did not play this concertina as he was just a collector. A beautifully made instrument!
-Stagi English system. This appears to be a typical Stagi Concertina.....good for a budget conscious beginner.
- Lachenal anglo, rosewood with 20 bone buttons.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to have more information on any of these instruments. I can forward a photo if you are interested, and a price can be negotiated. email@example.com .
is the latest from Edgley Concertinas. This jatoba with ebony trim and natural wood handles
speaks for itself. It is available immediately, as it has been tuned and
gone through "road testing." Please contact us by e-mail if you are
interested. Free shipping to locations in Canada or the lower 48 states.
I started being serious about music in my teens after several forays into piano and clarinet. This was with the Highland bagpipe. I played for a number of years and became Pipe Major of the Scottish Society of Windsor Pipe Band. We won numerous prizes, including Canadian Championship, US Championship, Interprovincial, North American Championship and Champion Supreme. Concertina playing began to interest me around 1978. I began to repair vintage concertinas in the 80's, and did so until retirement from teaching elementary school. I have also qualified and played in the All-Ireland senior concertina competitions three times. Harold Herrington, of Dallas, a good friend and concertina maker suggested I start making concertinas and helped me get started. As of January 2015 I have made around 450 concertinas and shipped them to customers around the world.
