I currently play a lovely C/G 31 button concertina, a very early Crabb that was overhauled by Greg Jowaisas, with beautiful new bellows and tuned in 1/5 comma meantone. I love the concertina, but as luck would have it, I have another long awaited C/G from a contemporary maker coming my way this spring. Since I don't have a need for two C/G anglos, I thought I'd put the feelers out there:

 

What I'm looking for is a really nice Bb/F concertina. I'd prefer a Jeffries, but I would consider others in the same class. I'm not interested in anything with more than 39 buttons, and tend to prefer a standard 31 button. I would offer the Crabb as a trade, but could also sell the Crabb separately for a cash deal.

 

I'm in no rush, but I thought it'd be good to see if anyone is out there. If I can save one Bb/F from getting converted to C/G, I'd be happy. I'll be in Ireland in May, and probably in England for a day or two as well. 

 

Here's a few photos of the Crabb

Hi there.......I did email you with any possible leads that I turned up ( there were none that met your specifics) but the email was bounced back.

Cheers.....Robin

I've uploaded some better photos, the others were a bit blurry. 

 

Thanks
