In my time playing, I've come across two different 26 button wooden ended Jeffries in C/G. In both cases, the owners loved them, and I was very impressed with the sound. I'm well set for my C/G concertina, but I've been lusting after a Bb/F and an A/E (or Ab/Eb) for quite some time. 

 

Has anyone ever come across one of those older 26 button wooden Jeffries boxes in Bb/F? I've never seen one myself, maybe they don't exist. But if they are out there, I will be on the hunt! I've heard of one in Ab/Eb (Greg Jowaisas had one) but wasn't looking at the time. 

 

Thanks!

I have played a Jeffries wooden ended 20 key in Bf/F and also a 26 key one which had been Bf/F but then a nice job had been done of bringing it up to C/G. Both were gorgeous but the 20 key in particular had stunning reeds.

I have a Jeffries/ Crabb 26 button in B / F# and has a lovely tone. 

 

 

 

It could be for sale.

So one at least did exist.
