NEW CUSTOMER FEEDBACK
Edgley #590 arrived several days ago in good shape. I’ve spent quite a bit of time playing it since then and I have been very very pleased.
The sound, to my ears, is outstanding—very balanced, wonderful tone and can be played quietly but is still able to get good volume when enough pressure is applied to the bellows. The reeds seem to be very responsive and sound quickly. The bellows are also the most supple of any of the new concertinas I have played. Lastly, I think your cabinet work on the body is excellent.
Thanks to you and your team for building such a fine instrument. It was well worth the wait.

Heritage Concertina for Sale
This is a new post for one of my Heritage concertinas - #403. A former customer contacted me recently about selling his Heritage Concertina # 403. When I received it, I was very pleased! it plays extremely well with a good, solid "concertina tone." To be completely honest with you, I really considered keeping it for myself and buying it without posting it, here. It is ebony with bloodwood trim, and has a seven deep fold very airtight bellows. However, I do have a personal Heritage instrument of my own. I'm supposed to be a maker, not a collector. To be very honest with you, I would put this instrument up against any other maker's instrument, it plays and sounds that good! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or call me at 519-991-3100.
I am pleased to announce that this concertina has found a new home!

Heritage Concertina for Sale
I have a Heritage Concertina for sale. It was made in my shop a couple of years ago. The present owner, a former employee, has decided his heart is not in it and has decided to sell. It has hardly been played. It will be tuned and checked over before shipping. Ebony with rosewood trim. For more information, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .

All the Way from Australia
The following is a testimonial from someone in Australia who just received his instrument. he specifically asked that we publish his comments:
It is now a week since my new Professional model concertina was delivered, thank you. It is a magnificent instrument, it has exceeded my expectations. Your workmanship is superb, it is beautiful to look at and an absolute joy to play and has a wonderful warm tone.
My first thought was, "I am not worthy of this instrument, but there is no way I will give it back! The reeds speak so easily, it is incredibly responsive, the action is light and fast. I have noticed an immediate improvement in my playing. I will own this instrument until the day I die!

I thought I'd publish this testimonial that I got from a customer named John A, which was sent to me a while back. It also mentioned an Italian make as well as a well-known maker of instruments which use English-style reeds, like I do with my Heritage model. I have blocked out the latter's name as I don't want to have any bad feelings between us.
