Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Price drop to 2100 euros. (Bought a new box with concertina reeds which suits me better)
  2. Nice idea James ! I did a quick math...Kensington is sold second hand for about 3000$, VAT will also apply (but can eventually declare a lower price...) but all together it will be about the same price that ordering from UK. For about the same final price, I favor a concertina coming from Barleycorn :-) So I have decide to buy the one from Barleycorn ! It is a huge financial stretch but I am pretty sure I will be happy for a loooong time !! I actually have a Morse (awesome concertina) but the accordion reed doesn't strike me as much as concertina reeds.
  3. Thank you ! Unfortunately Barleycorn is not an option...since Brexit, I will pay around 600 euros of Vat and taxes 😕 but it gives me an idea of price... if sold from person to person (even outside eu), an arrangement can be done, but not if sold by a shop ( I asked Chris if a solution could be found). Anyway thank you pointing it out 😉
  4. All in the title 🙂 (Looking for C/G tuning) Please let me know ! Thank you
  5. Sale cancelled as Barleycorn can take it back. Great service and concertina.
  6. Will consider trade (or partial) for a 20b Lachenal with brass reed.
  7. A G/D in Jeffries Layout, curious if you can find one !
  8. Hello Everyone, Selling this nice concertina from « Irish Concertina Company », The Clare. It is like new, still 4 years warranty I believe. Jeffries Layout C#/D# on first and D#/C# on second button (Push/pull). Have to say, I really like it ! But it is a little too small for my (big) hand, having little trouble reaching third row. I really like the sound of it and the overall quality, it is pretty sweet sound, not harsh at all. Selling for 1800 euros, sending from Belgium anywhere. Thank you Nicolas
  9. Hello Everyone, Now selling a beautiful black finish Morse Céilí. It is number 1417, from 2018 so almost new. Barely used, still a smell of leather, handle and bellows are in great shape. It is a Jeffries Layout. With Tipo a mano option. What can I say more about the Morse that hasn't been said already ! : Super light and robust, super fast player, big volume and great sound ! I am asking 2100 2200 euros (EU), sending from Belgium anywhere. (It cost around 2900 euros in EU or UK) Cheers
  10. ha ha thank Tiposx pointing to my concertina 😉 As a beginner, I am not qualified to really answer your question... But as I understand, there are reeds but also all the inside mechanic that matters. There aren't really a "better" one between Jones and Lachenal (for same category of course) but a matter of taste. As I understand, Jones have broad reeds which make a softer tone. Lachenal are more strident. And Jones have bushed buttons which prevent hearing the clicking sound. The problem with vintage is that they are all somehow different depending of years of construction, if played a lot and all...The best way is to try it but of course it is not always possible 😉 Maybe this article about Jones can help you a bit: http://www.concertina.com/butler/butler-story-of-george-jones.pdf Good luck !
  11. Just find out I forgot to put pictures 🙂 Nicolas
  12. I forgot to mention a trade is possible, trade = not loosing money 🙂 I am looking for a Hybrid concertina in Jeffries layout, a trade is possible for a concertina of same value.
