The New Heritage

I have completed two more Heritage Model Concertinas. These instruments will not disappoint their new owners..... Good strong tone capability, without harshness or stridency, and also capable of being played very softly, offering a full range of dynamics.
Having had thirteen years of experience making concertinas with Italian-style reeds, and over thirty years of experience repairing and restoring antique vintage instruments with "concertina reeds," I know what sound I am looking for and what makes a good concertina, and have the skills, tools, and knowledge to do so.
These two concertinas will soon be off to their new owners on the west coast of the US, as soon as tuning is completed, and the cases made for them. Pictures to follow soon.....

Customer Information Needed

I was contacted on my mobile phone (cell) a few days ago while I was driving in my car. (Don't worry. I have bluetooth in my car.) The person who contacted me asked whether I had received his order form. I wasn't sure at the moment, but since I had printed a few orders the day before, I assumed that I had. When I arrived at the workshop I realised that I had not, and I can't find anything in my "Received Messages" on my e-mail. If you are the person who called me around Christmas, please send me another e-mail, so I know your contact information.
