May I inquire why you think it should cost 25% more than a new one straight from

the source? I might be interested in investing in concertina's too  :blink:

Perhaps you should...

 

I don't believe that a given customer would be able to acquire a new one straight from the source without having to wait (or having waited already) for quite a while.

Being an instrument maker myself I have had this sort of thing happen and it is just a case of supply and demand. It can, however, be annoying when a customer turns around a new instrument within a very short period and makes a fat profit . :o

Investing in a Hang (assuming you can get chosen by PANart to buy one) would probably be more of an 'investment'. The last time I looked PANart were selling them for $2,000, but the last one I saw on ebay fetched nearer $6,000. This has apparently annoyed the makers so much, that any prospective buyer is now obliged to sign a contact, promising never to sell it for more than you bought it for. Obviously the contact would only be a minor dissuasion in an international sale, but committing the ultimate crime of selling one would probably exclude you from ever being chosen to buy a second...

Perhaps that's the way forward Geoff :D
