    Dubious eBay listings

    This is someone hacking individual ebay accounts. They list hundreds of high quality items, often including conertinas, and they always instruct you not to bid but to contact them outside of ebay for a buy it now. They also always use the same pictures over and over. They hit me once about a year ago.

    Colin Dipper Instrument #47 C/g Anglo

    This is a lovely instrument that this gentleman is selling. He accidentally mentioned the word "ivory" instead of bone buttons in the listing. eBay contacted him, telling him that ivory was a banned substance and that the listing would need to be closed. Great opportunity to buy a beautiful instrument.

    Tunning Brass

    Thank you for the sound advice. I have taken it and found a different concertina. You've likely saved me a lot of time and expense. I'll definitely check here first when puzzled by my next project.

    Tunning Brass

    Thank you so much. I'm retinking my project. I'm leaning towards mostly reshuffling positions in another, steel reed 30 button and purchasing the additional reeds needed to covert to G/D. That way I can label, preserve and keep the original C/G available. (I hope)

    Tunning Brass

    I have aquired a lachenal, C/G, mahogany with brass reeds. Its currently tuned in old pitch about(433). I do have a couple of other, nicer C/G concertinas. My question is, is it worth the effort to retune to 440? And secondly, would it be possible to retune, (with a good deal of "shuffling,") to G/D? I have some limited experience with reed tunning with mixed, improving results. But I have the impression that brass is more difficult to work with than steel. Thank you, I would appreciate any input. JH
  15. This is a fine discussion, but I only have one question. How difficult is it today to buy a single, antique, rosewood ended instrument in the UK and have it shipped to me for personal use in the US?
