  1. And don't forget the import duties and VAT you'll pay when importing from US.
  2. The ledger states the model is a 6E A look at this link http://www.concertina.com/pricelists/wheat...t-All-c1956.pdf will reveal that a 6E is indeed a 48 key tenor-treble. Steve
  3. Google worked just fine. Thanks all. Steve
  4. and God Jul och Gott Nytt År!! Steve
  5. Does anyone have any experience of importing used concertinas made in England? I'd like to know what the import duty & VAT implications are on effectively re-importation of a 'tina. Having looked at the HMRC regulations: Antiques over 100 years old have reduced VAT Collectables (must be of historical significance) have reduced VAT (both of the above must have documentary evidence) Items less than 100 years VAT at full rate (17.5%) The value used for VAT calculation is the amount paid. If I re-import an old 'tina from US, one that's less than 100 years old (according to the ledgers), I'm wondering what VAT rate may apply - I'll speak to HMRC and check. But wondered if anyone else had any experience. Steve
  6. Search does not allow search terms of less than 3 characters as I discovered when I tried a search on Eb. Eb-tuned 'tinas do exist - any chance that in the context of this forum search terms like Eb could be permitted. Steve

  8. Did anyone notice the zero feedback from this seller? Possible scam? Steve
  9. Hej Jim Trevligt att det finns flera haer som gillar skandinavisk folkmusik. I used to live in Lund (I was at university there many years ago) - I guess the sessions have changed since then - at the time I used to play a little with Skaanes Spelmansfoerbund (Scanian Fiddlers Association) and really developed my deep interest in Scandi music. Slaengpolskas are particularly great on concertina. I usually meet up here with some very enthusiastic musicians playing fiddle, nyckelharpa, clarinet, cello (and I'm also dabbling with Swedish chord zither (cittra) and I play EC) - but sadly we all live too far apart to meet up on a weekly basis. I'd like to come along to the Scandi Squeeze-in - I met Pontus once many years ago and had a few tunes with him, but I think my friend Rickard from Stockholm usually attends (Anglo, Eken Morris). Now about that thread...... Steve
  10. I play mostly in isolation - my main interest is Scandinavian folk music and I usually participate in social gatherings several times each year. This usually means a lot of playing in a social context in sessions and for dance. However playing in isolation gives me plenty of scope to learn more complex tunes, practice and perfect the ornamentation, learn new songs, and generally research the music I play ready for the next social get-together. I spent most of last night trawling the Internet for some great Swedish polskas and a Finnish humpa - now I've just got to sit down and start learning them BTW is anyone else interested in Scandinavian music on concertina? (subject for another thread?) Steve
  11. Have you listed the baritone on eBay? I couldn't see it? maybe you could provide a link. Thanks, Steve
  12. I'm looking to buy a tenor-treble concertina: Wheatstone Aeola (or Lachenal New Model / Edeophone) 56 B Wooden ends Any condition (even if repairs are required). Steve
  13. I have a model 5A from 1919 S/N 28103 with frets cut between the buttons. Steve
  14. All Does anyone have any pictures of Steve's and Colin's concertinas? Steve
  15. Does anyone know of a concertina case maker in UK? I'm after a strong custom-made concertina flight case capable of taking two concertinas, plus pockets/comparments for other odds & ends, and protect them snuggly in-flight (it's a pain carrying on 2 concertinas) as well as from the damage they might receive from being chucked around by baggage handlers. If the case is big enough it'll also function as a seat for jams at festivals. I've seen flight cases available for fiddles that I believe do a good job of protecting expensive instruments. Thanks Steve
