More Pictures

This is Heritage number 408.....a little bit fancier, with Mexican bocote wood body and handles, both capped with ebony. As with all Heritage Concertinas, it was made using steel concertina reeds with brass reed shoes dovetailed into a hardwood reed pan. This one went to a player in Toronto. I am currently working on another Heritage which has an ebony body with bocote trim. It should be ready for sale in a few months. Contact me at .

New Heritage Model Available Immediately

This kind of situation occurs from time to time due to the economy. I was about a week from completing one of my concertina-reeded instruments when the customer notified me that due to financial pressures he was unable to take delivery on that instrument. It is now available right away. It is solid ebony, with a solid hardwood reedpan, steel concertina reeds in brass frames, early 20th century design grill etc. I recently took it to the Squeeze-in in Massachusetts where it got very good reviews from knowledgable players. Please send me an e-mail at if you would like more details, or call me at 519-991-3100.
