  1. Thanks Conzertino and Dowright for the responses. Conzertino thanks for the great tip, I'll consider that. Dowright, good luck selling your collection. Best, Greg
  2. Dowright, Thanks for the info, that is great to know more about the instrument. I would not have been able to decode the N.P. hex part from the Wheatstone ledger. Knowing that you have two Wheatstone miniature duet , I would like to have your opinion about the pricing of my miniature Maccann duet. You are very knowledgeable and a collector apparently, I don't know what condition are yours and how much you paid fo them, but you must have an idea about the value of such an instrument. It is truly in a great condition. I know it's a hard question because it's mostly a question of opinion and pricing is always about supply and demand, but i'm interested in your opinion. Best, Greg
  3. Thanks Dowright, I'll provide it tonight. And to respond to your question about how I classified it as a Maccan Duet, I have to be honest, I believed Chris Algard who sold it to me as a Maccan Duet. I didn't even know the existence of the Maccan duet system when I bought it. You seem very knowledgeable, you might confirm or give me more info when I provide the keys layout.
  4. I would much appreciate a key diagram.

    Thanks for considering my request.

  5. Hello concertina lovers, I am selling my Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet Concertina. I have a listing on ebay, check it out if you are interested. https://www.ebay.com/itm/302791718981?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 It is an amazing 12 keys Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet Concertina, serial number: 32154. From the serial number, we can estimate that it was made around 1929. It is in an incredible condition. All actions, pads, metal buttons, steel reeds and 8-fold bellows are impeccable. The metal ends are beautifully sculpted. It is "concert pitch" tuned and it sounds great. It is surprisingly powerful for the size (4.5 inches / 3 inches). I bought it from Chris Algar at Barleycorn Concertinas. It will come in the original box which is also in an amazing condition. If you have any questions or would like additional photos, don't hesitate to ask me.
  6. I just relisted the concertina and reduced the price greatly. Hope It will make someone happy! I love it but just really need the money!
  7. Great conzertino, thanks for your response. If I see one of those, I'll make sure to let you know. Good luck!

  10. Thanks! I will definitely look into that. I am not sure what wood it is. It seems almost impossible to know for sure with all the different kinds of wood. But I'll try. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
