The Concertina Maintenance Manual

The Concertina Maintenance Manual (aka the CMM) is now in its second and much expanded edition. The first edition was produced with three objectives:

1. to share experience by providing detailed instructions for common tasks

2. to make self help possible

3. to raise money for a local folk music charity

As a result of the charitable objective, the first edition was published on a shoe string budget.

Outcomes from the first edition included masses of feed back, and then the opportunity for me to work on a wider range of concertina types, as my experience grew and it became time for this more professionally produced and expanded second edition.
