Title: Knackered Stagi, Gremlin and/or Bastari Concertinas
Post by: malcolmbebb on December 14, 2013, 10:00:45 PM
A bit of a long shot.

There is a variety of concertinas made under these names. Those that I have seen are generally better than many generic Chinese boxes, with one major exception - the actions are made out of "rubbish metal" aluminium alloy. They quickly wear out, with buttons falling out and wobbling all over the place making the boxes very hard to play.
Newer ones may be better, I don't know.

Anyway, if anyone has one of these fellows - as described above, W15 and W15N are two model numbers, that has passed it use-by date but they don't want to just throw out, I would be happy to provide a home for them.

A couple of future projects  (:)
