  1. These guys pop up every so often. They offer 1930s Gibson and 1950s fender guitars for pennies on the dollar. High end bicycles and tools, along with hundreds of other items. They hacked me a couple of years ago and used my account name to list 6 or 7 hundred items. They also instruct you not to bid but to contact them for a buy it now on all of the listings. The scam is easy to spot because they always use the same photos. I report them to ebay as soon as the same old pictures of concertinas and guitars show up.

  3. Have to admit, I've been waiting quietly to see what anglo you may have available?
  4. Recognising overlooked inherent worth is a talent. No, "added value," necessary.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I saw a 30 button C/G Suttner on,"done deal", yesterday.
  8. Hi. Would it be possible to see the reed pan?
  9. Would love to hear what you may have available.
  10. If you find a decent sourse for vellum please let me know.
  11. 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.
  12. Hello very interested in the 30. Could you pm me?
  13. 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)
  14. 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?
  16. Hi Mike. I sent you a PM Also. Didn't see one on this end. JH
  17. Hi. Could you describe post a picture?
