Did You Know?

Frank Edgley Concertinas have the deepest fold of any known contemporary concertinas, with a designed depth of 35 mm. With this depth and seven folds, they are capable of superior extension. Edgley concertinas are finished with the best quality goat hide. Goat has been known to be the best, and hardest-wearing of materials for bellows. Owners of Frank Edgley Concertinas should be able to pass their concertinas on to their children and/or grandchildren.
