    Early Wheatstone anglo on Ebay uk

    This item is not made by Wheatstone; it is a Jones, there are several identifying aspects in the photos and still the seller is claiming it as a Wheatstone . Caveat Emptor! Mike😟

    48 key Wheatstone for sale

    Hello, A lot of reeds appear to have solder on the tips which may mean that the pitch may be lower than a standard treble. can you tell me what the lowest note is on the right hand end. Many thanks . Mike

    Wanted 48key Wheatstone or Lachenal english

    Hello, I may have a concertina or two in your price range , they are not advertised anywhere, so they should be should still be here. I live about 40 miles from Cambridge so we are not too far away. You can either mail me or phone 01728 768128 when you arrive over here. Best regards. Mike Acott
  12. Hello Geoff, the Aeolas are not for sale but I will do some photos and mail them to you if you let me have yor mail address. Best regards. Mike
  13. All the talk of the Wheatstone labels is probably a red herring, I have three Eaolas with tortoiseshell ends from three years in the 1920's with this style and the fourth one has the Lozenge style. I think the person making these boxes used what they at the time. Regards. Mike
