  1. Ah, ok - I messaged them via their website asking what the reason for the switch was, so hopefully will hear back from them soon!
  2. Good suggestion to email the maker - I'll do that and and let ye know if they reply and what they say. I wonder if it might have anything to do with supply chain issues given how much those are impacting so many different things right now?
  3. A few years back I had a lovely Tedrow 30 button Anglo concertina but had to sell it as I was lightening the load and raising funds for a transatlantic move back home to Ireland. Now that the move has happened I'm hoping to have enough money to replace it in a couple months time - I'm going to keep me eyes peeled for something second hand, but was also checking out the Irish Concertina Company website - I noticed that they previously listed their Walnut Clare model as having "professional accordion reeds" and their Cherry wood Clare as having "brass accordion reeds", but now there's a note saying that as of 2021 all Clare models will be built with brass accordion reeds - would that steer you away from a new Clare model or would it be much of a muchness in a hybrid Anglo?
  4. SOLD via Reverb, buyer happy with the purchase! Donation made to c-net as the buyer may have seen it here first prior to the Reverb purchase.
  5. Yes, shipped off to the buyer yesterday, though he does get the 7 day approval period as per Reverb's recommendation.
  6. Just a heads up as well - I have this concertina listed on Reverb in the Folk>accordion category, which opens up the payment options to include credit cards, or Affirm financing. Price is slightly higher on Reverb due to the cut they take if it sells, but I'm also open to reasonable offers.
  7. Have been trying to hang onto this but now it really and truly has to go as I'm trying to get funds for a custom build. 30 button Anglo concertina built in 2008 by Bob Tedrow, Jeffries layout. In great shape barring some finish wear from playing, nothing extreme. All notes sound, no sticky buttons, no air leaks. Was recently tuned and new pads installed by the folks at the Button Box. Comes with great hardshell case made by Fallon Cases in Michigan. If you're in the SF Bay Area I can meet up with you easily. $1600 shipped to the lower 48, PayPal OK, but if you're local and I don't have to ship I can knock a bit off the price.
  8. If your instructor accepts PayPal you can - I've done online lessons and paid via PayPal credit in the past. I've also purchased stuff from private sellers and used it as well.
  9. Great stuff! Really enjoyed the review section as the addition of audio files accompanying the writing gave the opportunity to highlight the particular talking points in a manner that just the written word alone might not.
  10. As someone who's only recently joined the site a few months ago it's been interesting to read this thread - I'm a longtime member over at the Mandolin Cafe, and I guess online purchasing between private parties is more common in the mandolin world (as is a sometimes obsessive compulsion to "catch and release" mandolins: buying with the intent of playing it for awhile and then moving it on to buy one by a different maker or a different style). I've both bought and sold many mandolins, all online, and a few tenor banjos too, all instruments with values between $1200-$3500. The arrangement has always been payment via PayPal , with the purchaser getting 48 hour approval period starting upon receiving the instrument. When it's an instrument I've sold I never remove the funds from my PayPal account until after the approval period is complete. Once I know the buyer is satisfied only then will I transfer the $$ into my bank account. It's definitely nerve-wracking packing up a nice instrument and hoping that it survives the handling of whatever method of shipment I've chosen (generally UPS or USPS). Touch wood I've never packed an instrument up and had the buyer receive it damaged. I did once have a guy from England ship a banjo to me in Ireland and it arrived at my rural local post office without a case or box of any kind, simply wrapped in brown paper! Amazingly it was all in one piece!
  11. FYI this concertina is in great working order - no sticking buttons, all notes sound clearly, no air leaks in bellows. Price drop to $1850 including shipping, need to sell asap.
  12. Reluctantly selling my Tedrow C/G 30 button Anglo concertina. Accordion reeds, 7 fold bellows, Jeffries layout. I emailed Bob to try to get an idea of when it was made and he reckons it was one of his more recent ones. Purchased this from the Button Box last year, they replaced all the pads and gave it a tune up. Comes with great Fallon hard case. Money too tight right now to be able to hang on to this so my loss is someone else's gain. Looking for $1950, PayPal ok, will ship to the lower 48, not entertaining overseas buyers, sorry. Will drop the price a little for local buyers who can pick it up (SF Bay Area). **Original owner tells me that this is a 2008 built instrument. Price drop to $1850 including shipping
  13. Wonderful stuff there. Nice to hear her version of "The Few Bob" in that first youtube clip as well!
  14. I was under the impression (from info I'd read over at the Mandolin Cafe site) that CITES regulations apply to the import/export of instruments for sale, and not for the carrying in or out of personally owned instruments? Also, from an observer's standpoint (foreign national residing in the US and planning to leave before the end of the year) it appears that your new government is eliminating regulations for just about everything so perhaps CITES will be in their sights (crap pun, sorry, couldn't resist) as well.......
  15. "Misinformed"? Is that aimed at me? How am I misinformed by merely stating that the Edgley concertina in question was not made by a child? Good luck with your search. nope. was aimed at myself. thankyou for the goodluck. Ah, thanks for the clarification!

  17. Well that's odd - Borin1982 appears to have edited the post that my above reply was aimed at, where he commented about not being interested in a concertina made by a kid/child? Just commenting to add context because otherwise my above post seems a little odd!
  18. Um, I don't think that Edgley Professional was "made by a kid" - Frank Edgley is an older guy, so the concertina would have been made by his adult son in 2006....
  19. Someone just posted an Edgley Professional 30 button C/G with Wheatstone layout here a few posts below yours for $1695 I think - I'd be all over that one!
  20. Check out the videos over at The Button Box website, pretty sure they have some there that are G/D as well as C/G.
  21. Well I checked the buttons and all of them are sounding a note on the draw. I then took the ends off the Tedrow and checked for loose pads and all (to my novice eyes anyway) appears well. Last night (prior to my opening it up) I noticed that it just feels tough in general now to work the bellows, whether on the push or the draw. I've emailed the shop that did the work but know that they're closed at the weekend so don't expect a reply until Monday.
  22. Great, thanks Patrick, I'll give that a go!! You've all been so helpful I really appreciate it!
