    Mayfair-Type Action

    I received an email from Doug Creighton with Button Box ("the seller" mentioned in my post above). He sent me a photo of a Mayfair model (1) and a photo of the Edley in question (2). One can see their actions are of the same type. For contrast, he also sent a photo of the riveted action in a Minstrel (3). I appreciate his quick response.

    Mayfair-Type Action

    Thanks again, Bill. I'm also considering a pre-own Edgley Professional, and am glad to hear more endorsement from people who know what they are talking about. I sent email messages to the seller asking for the model of the item in the ad (I guess it's not a Professional, otherwise the ad would state so) and what they meant by "Mayfair-action," but haven't heard from them. My background: I play a bit of accordion (CBA), but am trying to learn something less heavy and more portable.

    Mayfair-Type Action

    Thanks, Bill. But I guess this is not the case. The seller is a very popular concertina store, also a concertina maker. I searched for "Mayfair concertina" and essentially found the same info as in your post. I didn't find anything as "Mayfair action." I am particularly interested because I'm about to buy an Edgley (not necessarily the one in the ad).
  5. I'm new to Anglo concertina. I've seen an ad for a 30B Edgley with "Mayfair-type action." What is it and is it better or worse than other types of action? Thanks.
