Bandonion History & Collection

August 24, 2014

I started buying old bandonions and German Konzertinas one by one, and soon it became a small collection.

At the moment I have about 90 instruments ranging from the earlier bandonion types (uni-sonoric, and bi-sonoric), to concertinas and related
hybrids, from about the1850`s till the 1950`s.

I try to reconstruct  the history of bandonion and German Konzertina production and their hybrids, made during their hay days. I am especially interested in the different lay outs produced in order to get an oversight of their history.
