Dear Silbersee, I can only confirm what I wrote about them some time ago.They are good instruments , very reliable ,the Clare has a nice sound and plays very easy.About the service:last winter a reed went flat , I had a a new one from Garvey in about one week.,after I sent ihm an email. If you go to Siegen (Suttner) come to Münster and I can show you them.
I was impressed with the name and ordered one - the Vintage with concertina reeds ( I guess they come from Suttner) I had to wait only 8-10 weeks - I was really satisfied with the price and the instrument - a mellow tone and good playability - untill then I have played "only" Lachenal and the Vintage was at once my favourite- I was (am) so satisfied that a little time läter I bought also the hybrid - also great tone and playability - that was one year ago - now I have also some Jeffries and Wheatstone but still I like to play the Vintage they are modern, reliable instruments co
if still unsold , I would buy it . I live in Germany.
