  1. Wow! indeed and that's just the tip of his superb iceberg of talent, so to speak!
  2. Theo Gibb has Ab/Eb 38 button Lachenal theboxplace.co.uk/product/lachenal-38-abeb/ Any help?
  3. As others say, I have 44 and a 50 key Jeffries Brothers anglos, (1 being ex Fred Kilroy G/D). Lovely instruments all!
  4. I've had details - a full programme from Friday lunch to Sunday tea. I've booked.
  5. Hello Deidre, I don't think the owner would want to sell outside the UK, but I will ask, of course. Thanks for your message. I'll get back to you in due course.
  6. I'm selling this instrument on behalf of a friend who bought it from Colin Dipper, intending to learn to play upon her retirement. Having now found family and 'life' have left her no time, she has asked me to sell it. It has 30 buttons for C/G playing, plus a 'bird-call' and a 'cry-baby' . The layout seems to be standard 'Wheatstone' style and the condition is largely good and is as sold to her several years ago by Colin - I was with her when she bought it. It seems to be in tune (modern pitch) and has been re-padded on the left side, although the right-hand side appears untouched as p
  7. If only I played English!!!! So boooooootiful!!!! This must have been someone's prized possession - wonder what the back-story is?
  8. Thanks, David for your prompt reply. in case anyone is looking, I'm not buying - wish i could, though!.
  9. Many thanks, Both. I know your joint knowledge is based on massive experience, so I'm happy to leave this thread at this point and put the idea aside as impractical for me to take forward. Thanks for taking the time to respond, it was a thought I had for a future plan which I'm content to forget. Regards, Tony
  10. Can anyone tell me if it is a simple swop to change the reeds of a 38 key C/G Jeffries and put them into a 38 key Bb/F Jeffries and vice-versa? In other words, are the slots for the reed shoes pretty much 'standard' between similar instruments in similar button positions - I'm not currently in a position to check sizes, so this is just a general query in principal. I'm guessing that slots are not so specific as to make this impossible. Any thoughts, please? Regards, Tony.
  11. Just to update the discussion, there are currently 3 responders interested in my Dipper Baritone, for which I am very grateful. I am discussing with David Levine, as he was the first to answer my posting, and I will let the other 2 c.netters know any outcome. I will use the PM service and email as each requests. Thanks once again to all. If sold, a donation will be made to the site.
  12. I have a Dipper C/G in baritone tuning (octave below). It's a 30 key, metal ends/buttons with the usual gold banding, it has a Dipper leather-covered hard case.. One of the nice points is that the buttons are proportionately large in diameter, so it retains the appearance of a 'normal' sized 30 key when viewed without other concertinas for reference. It's in almost unplayed condition, but in fairness i'd say it is certainly not as fast as a regular C/G. I'm not a player of ITM, so wouldn't like to attest to it's suitability, but Colin's instruments are very good as you'll undoubtedly know.
  13. It's that man again! Bude Festival are hosting a workshop from Cohen on 'Traditional Tunes on Melodeon and Anglo Concertina'. Venue will be The Falcon Hotel (Festival main venue) at 10am on Saturday 25th May. If you are anywhere in the area, don't miss it and if you have to travel, then there's good, level camping at the Festival Campsite (The Rugby Club) just a few minutes walk/cycle along the edge of the canal. Of course, the best plan is to be a Festival goer for the weekend - it's small, very friendly with all the added joy of a Cornish holiday in a lovely, little seaside town. Add in s
