Hello all,

 

Following my recent acquisition of a Jeffries I am selling this Wheatstone I purchased from Ben in Toronto (via Ebay) a couple of years ago.  It is in excellent condition as when I received it, in tune, with all the reeds sounding perfectly.  The bellows are in mint condition. The rosewood ends give it a lovely tone which I have used for both Irish tunes and song accompaniment.  It has been described by Chris Algar as an excellent example of the early post-WWII Wheatstone Anglo. 

 

I may add a sound file and/or take photos of the reedpans if anybody is interested.

 

Asking price EUR2250, £2000 or equivalent.

I'd be interested in reed pan photos and a sound file (though mainly out of curiosity).

Interesting mix with clamped and crimped reeds - perhaps a transitional instrument using up old reed stock?

Thanks for posting the pics and sound file!  It has a nice sound.

Possibly, but even the clamped reeds have aluminum frames, and Wheatstone continued to use clamped aluminum-frame reeds in higher-end models for many years after this one was made.  But I don't have an alternative theory for the mix.

Rather than hijack this for sale thread with some observations I've started a new topic in instrument construction:  http://www.concertin...showtopic=20077

Are these reed just held down flat on the reed pan, no dovetail slots?
