Hi All,

So several months ago I made the switch from English to the Duet.  I purchased a flawless used Peacock Special ($2900 new) from the Button Box in November- It is in excellent condition and plays wonderfully, but I miss my Baritone English.  The Hayden system is fantastic for playing pretty straightforward tunes and easily lets me accompany groups, but I miss all of the accidentals and lower bass notes.

 

For Sale is a Concertina Connection Peacock Duet Special.  Below are the Specs from Wim Wakker's site.  FYI Wim will accept this instrument in the trade-up program- it goes with the instrument, not the owner. Comes with a hard case.  $2500.  Will split shipping.

 

 

The Peacock is a 42 key hybrid Wicky (Hayden without the keyboard slant) duet concertina designed and developed by the Concertina Connection® Inc..  
The instruments measures 7 inch across the flats. The Standard and Special models are available with ebonized (black) or natural finished ends
.The custom is available in a variety of harwoods.
