  1. After 5 month, I didn't used it much at the end (working on other project) So the sale is open again !
  2. Thank you Wes ! Yes not an easy instrument but a lot of fun when one can play a tune with expression. Indeed, I had some good friends comment about how it sound !
  3. Concertina on hold...by me 🙂 Took it out of the box for fun yesterday and really love the sound, feeling and all. I played it in a room with some echo...a very interesting experience 👍 Best
  4. Lol thank you for your advice ! But I didn't mention any sound volume problem ha ha. The volume is enough for my need... Besides that, I am selling it because my effort goes to melodeon at the moment... (also far cheaper instrument) But concertina is really fun, feel like the sound is produced by the tip of fingers 🙂 Best !
  5. Nice playing Timv ! You have been very patient with your previous concertina seeing how well you play 🙂 Ha ok I understand...Yes maybe ! Best
  6. Hey thank you TImv giving your impression on the Swan ! By curiosity, is the sound more on the harsh side or warm ? Responsiveness and good balance is already a great point ! Concerning the thread you mention, not sure what you mean by "leather under the metal end", is that an expression ? 🙂 (it's not metal end lol) Best
  7. I am selling my beautiful George Jones 20 buttons in G/C. It took me ages to learn 2 tunes that I can't even play properly and concertina is an expensive instrument so I can't “afford” to keep it. It is a fun instrument but I decide to put all my effort on the melodeon. - Rosewood end - Bushed button - Play well from top to bottom (no reeds are hard to speak) - Airtight/compression is very good - Sweet and warm tone - Steel reeds - Bottom left button of G row is low A - soft case included Please find a video of me playing to have an idea of the sound with smartphone (I didn't try my best 😉 https://youtu.be/Zjud-sTBbrQ Bought from Chris Algar (Barleycorn) a few month ago for 650 euros, looking for 550 euros (sent from Belgium). He said it is a nice one. Best Nicolas
  8. Hello, I just bought this concertina from Sunbeamer (great person to deal with). Bought it out of curiosity as my first quality Hybrid ! But I prefer the sound of those vintage concertina (I have a super sweet sounding Jones). So no problem at all with this concertina, just doesn't fit my needs (the search is endless 😉) Letting it go for £950 + shipping (bargain 😎) Travel concertina, great for practice when you’re away or just a good basic instrument for day to day use. its small (5”) but plays just like a normal size anglo , the extra button C#/ Eb makes a massive difference to the normal 20 button Anglo. 7 fold bellows + recently tuned & serviced by Marcus . In tune , in good condition , sweetheart concertina, with Marcus travel bag check the Marcus music web site for more info. Pictures and record in attachment. best Marcus 1.mp3 Marcus 2.mp3
  9. Wow nice !! After a few weeks, it's crazy (nice version of Monk's March) we can feel you have fun playing this tune. Really enjoying this, keep them coming 😉 Nicolas
  10. Thanks Wolf, great idea in the future ! (For my current problem, I know the reed is intact). I'll keep this idea in my archive ! Best
  11. I have the exact same problem but A drawn (not a Ceili) just about one week ago. I have told by seller (Algar) the reason could be humidity (like Noel Ways said). But I am still looking for a solution ! In my case, reed and reed frame is good so it is probably reed frame placement or valve (like Frank Edgley said) or... I am a total newbie in maintenance and I find it so complex to find the reason... Nicolas
  12. As a beginner view, yes that's what I meant ! Keeping finger on the low A and playing other notes around, and the G on push, lot's of fun.
  13. Totally agree with low A :-) And can be used as a fun drone note
