  1. Hi all, Considering purchasing a 26 button Jeffries anglo if I ever come across one again. I have been told that they are not just a 30 button with the low E and A removed on left hand and right hand equivalent. Does a chart exist that explains the layout? Are they standard across these instruments? Best, Tim
  2. Sorry Jeremy thanks for your reply, instrument has been sold, outside of the realms of concertina.net. Thanks all.
  3. Hi Mary have sent you a message. Thanks
  4. Hi all, I had this for sale before but couldn't go through with it so here I am again having to be disciplined and brutal. https://www.donedeal.ie/brassandwind-for-sale/charles-jeffries-concertina-in-c-g/32157961 All the best, Tim
  5. Hi all, You may or may not remember I had a Jeffries 32 button with black bellows for sale here in early 2021. After I invested in the instrument I found I was not liking it as much as I could. It had a "drier" sound than I had imagined. I also considered that I hadn't played enough concertinas and had possibly been in a rush to get one so should have shopped around more. However at the time, there was only a couple of places to go due to lockdowns etc. I eventually took it down and decided to wait until I had played it with others a lot. While I found it cut through the sound of the session very well compared to my old Crabb, I still am not totally enamoured with it as I feel I should be. I have now compared it with a couple of other Jeffries and the buttons on mine are not as instantly responsive and sensitive or yielding. It is still a spectacular concertina but it just isn't 100% what I am looking for. However I would like to ask those with experience if this is something that comes with time. It had had some refurbishment and new bellows by the time it came to me. Will the springs loosen and the bellows unstiffen a bit with lots of play? Could it be a bad mistake to part with it? My mind is in two places: begin a journey to sell, trade or upscale it in search of a superior Jeffries or to shop around and think of other concertinas. Any input appreciated and sorry to be repeating myself to some extent. Best, Tim
  6. https://www.gumtree.com/p/other-instruments/english-concertina-for-quick-sale-in-north-london-/1419381104 Hi folks, please see link above and attached pics. Open to offers from my fellow concertina enthusiasts on this site. I bought this instrument some time ago but have only made it over to London to my brother who has been minding it for me since receiving it in the post. To be honest this was a lockdown purchase and am going home to Ireland on Sunday morning and have decided I am better off focusing on the anglo. However it has a really good sound and is a robust instrument and the case is beautiful. If I could sell it before then, that would be great, and if not, my brother can facilitate the sale in the Camden Town area to anyone who might be keen.
  7. Hi again all, sorry to bump this topic but here are a few pictures of the inside of this crabb
  8. Hi, would you have any videos or sound files of the Hohner, and would you ship to Ireland? If not, I have someone in the UK who can accept it. Thanks. Tim
  9. Daniel, I will open it up today and get back to you. Thanks for the response.
