Hello All,

I am offering for sale three Anglo Concertinas, as follows:

 

20 Button Rosewood ended Lachenal, Se. #1722xx, steel reeds, Fancy Rosewood ends, five fold bellows, All new pads, valves, hand straps, and tuned to modern concert pitch, all work done by, and just in from North America's favorite concertina repairman!  Key of C/G, $750.00 USD

 

20 Button Rosewood ended Tidder, (don't know the S. #, maybe I'll open it later to see) Fancy Rosewood ends, SIX fold bellows, steel reeds, new pads, valves, hand straps, and tuned to modern concert pitch, all work done by, and just in from, North America's Favorite and Foremost Concertina Repair man!  Key of C/G, $800.00 USD

 

30 Button Mahogany Ended Lachenal, Brass Reeds, Original SEVEN fold Bellows, in rough shape, as found condition!  In the key of Ab/Eb!  This would be a great concertina for a singer, (once restored)  I bought this several years ago at auction, but have too  much going on to restore it myself at the present, this is a great project for someone wanting a 30 button instrument, but not wanting to pay full price!  And, you get the benefit of the experience of working on a vintage, classic concertina!  $500.00 USD

 

The usual donations will be promptly made to the site should these sell here, thank you all!

Don

The 30 button Ab/Eb has been sold, and the requisite donation to the site has been made, thank you, C-Net!  I still have two beautiful Rosewood 20 button instruments, have at'em!

Take care,

Don

Any chance you might be bringing these to NESI?

Hello, I'm very sorry, but I won't be attending NESI this year I am booked at the Shamrock House in East Durham New York that weekend(not paying attention to what is/was, going on around me!)  The 30 button Ab/Eb is gone, but I still have the other two(I've made no other attempt to sell them).  I don't know where you are, or are coming from, but I am in Sullivan County NY most weekends, and northern NJ during the week most weeks, so, if you are so inclined, I would be happy to show them to you and let you try them out.  Take care, 

Don

Thanks Don,
Unfortunately I am quite far away in far Nortern Maine. Say I probably won't be able to see them and try them out.

I just looked at  mapquest to see how far apart E.Durham and Becket are, and it is an hour and a half.  We could probably run over in the daytime on Saturday, I have done that before(back in the '90's, when NESI was at Bucksteep Manor ).  When that week comes, if you are still interested, let me know and I will bring them with me.  Take care, 

Don

I am currently in NJ working, when I get up to NY on the weekend(where the concertinas are), I'll take some pictures and get them up on here or get them to you somehow.

Thank you,
I am not really sure what I really want. I think a want a 30 button Anglo. But part of the reason I am going to the Squeeze In is to try out instruments. I will just be playing to entertain myself so I can do whatever I please. This is the first time I have played any instrument and I feel I belong in freereed space.

Well, 

you are in the right place, as there is no instrument as user friendly as an Anglo Concertina, so good luck in your quest!

Depends on the user... says this user who has always found the English to be more friendly to myself.  :)

That's true Jim, I do know others who find the English more user friendly than the Anglo, and, since I find the Anglo user friendly,  I occasionally forget that !

Here are some pictures of the Lachenal I finally got around to taking and uploading(and then downloading, I guess).  It is a very nice concertina!

Here are some pictures of the Tidder.  Notice the dark wood of the action board, the non-staple pass thru pivots(as opposed to Lachenal staple pivots), and the stamped, low , serial number.....also notice the large headed endbolts!  It also has a six fold bellows, even though it is a C/G intrument(as I'm told all Tidders were)

The 20 Key Lachenal is now on Ebay!  Also,  I have to apologize for my first description of this instrument, when taking the ends off, I discovered that although all  of the valves were replaced, only the pads that needed to be replaced were, so there are some older ones in there.  I'm sorry for that, I assumed!! 

 

And, as always, if someone from this site purchases the instrument off of the Ebay listing, I will still make the recommended donation to the site.  Take care, 

Don

The Tidder is  now on Ebay. The Lachenal sold, but not to someone on this site, sorry!  If the Tidder sells to someone on this site, the recommended donation will be made.  Thanks and take care, 

Don
