    Bass Anglo

Tuned to concert pitch, it is pedestrian in playing speed but is in pristine condition. Photos can be provided and any one wishing to can come and play it before buying. Mike. Mail me or phone 01728 768128

    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
  4. 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
  5. 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

    Suggestion For Experiment

    I have had two Aeolas with brass reeds, they were for export for the tropics. One was ebony ended the other metal. They were both excellent concertinas , so good that experienced players were deceived by trying to guess what the reed material was. Regards. Mike Acott
