    Fs - Dipper Anglo C/g

    This Concertina has now found a new home. Sorry that I did not post this sooner. Thanks to all that looked and be assured that it is going to a good home where it will be played and not wholesaled. Paul, I won't forget to make a contribution to c.net.

    Fs - Dipper Anglo C/g

    To the best of my knowledge, I am the second and fourth owner of this concertina. Anglo in C/G, black wooden ends done in Celtic knotting, 34 brass buttons, 7 fold bellows, modified Jeffries note layout (see pics for full note layout). Celtic dogs done in brass on each end above the hand rests and a brass medallion (right hand side below hand rest) marked; "R. Scard Maker - Dipper Concertinas - Heytesbury". Comes in a C&R Dipper box w/two securing latches, a handle on the top with an oval placard on the under side of lid that states, "C&R Dipper Concertinas - Innovators - Manufacturers and Exporters". As you can see in the pictures provided below, this instrument is in very good condition. No cracks whatsoever on the action board or reed pan. Note that there is a heart drawn on the bottom side of the right action board with R+P inside and the year 1992 etched below it. My Credentials and credibility are as follows: I have offered for sale and sold many high quality concertinas on the buy and sell forum on C.net over the last 10 plus years which included a metal ended Jeffries, 3 Suttners( 1 of which ended up going back to Ireland with Noel Hill for one of his students), a wooden ended Dipper County Clare to a c.net member in Japan, a wooden ended Carroll and one Wheatstone 48 keyed English and this Dipper which went to (now deceased) C.net member Bill Hamilton and then back to me. I have done business with Chris Algar on more than one occasion, Have purchased two concertinas from Jurgen Suttner, I sent a Lachenal to be hot rodded by Paul Groff, after he moved from Boston to Florida, and then sold that to a Wisconsin friend and fellow concertina player that went to the mid-west NHICS classes with me for 3 years and I also purchased, the above mentioned County Clare, from a C.net member from Louisiana that advertised here, in which we had, now deceased, Button Box Guru Rich Morse broker the transaction for us. Previous quoted prices are void. This will be my last attempt to sell this concertina in this venue. Please, PM if seriously interested in purchasing this high end, high quality Dipper Concertina.
  3. Make No Mistake, This is a concertina that any advanced player would appreciate having under his/her fingers. Price is $7,900 USD with free shipping to any buyer in the North American Continent. It is well worth every penny at this price. I am downsizing my stock of veried instruments. No time to play all of the them and want to downsize as my wife and I will be moving across the pond as soon as our daughter graduates in 2015. I am the second owner of this instrument. It did spend sometime in Columbus, Ohio at a fellow concertina players house, Bill Hamilton, who was a member of this site until he died a few years back. His sister sent it back to me. He was a great guy and a serious lover of the concertina and Irish music. He kept very good care of it and I did not have any problems with it upon its return, except a loose reed from shipping.

    Marc, What NHICS were you at (City, State and Country)? What Country and/or state were you from at that time? If you answer these two simple questions then, I can vouch for you. Steve Maurice

    Hi David, I am feeling well. Arthritis is in 85% remission lately so starting to play a little again. Hope you are doing well. What do you have to replace your Wally with and what are you asking for it? Steve

    David, Is this a Jeffries or Lachenal layout and what is the layout for the RH accidental row? Steve
  10. Was your County Clare the Small wooden ended 30b model? Mine has already sold but I have to admit that if it was older that 2007, it had never been played. Looked brand new and stiff like new.

    Thank you for looking out for the c.net members. It's a good thing.

    Dipper County Clare FS

    Item is sold. This is a nice little 'tina with good volume while still retaining a warm tone. Competes well for its place in a session with other instruments. I am the second owner and obtained it in late fall of 2008. Original owner says he took delivery in December of 2007. Production # is 393 for those who can date a Dipper by that. Price: $8,600.00 USD. Obviously, this sale is for serious buyers that do not want to wait so please, keep any conversation about pricing in a separate thread. If you are interested, please contact me through the messenger. Steve
