  1. Price update. Offers around C$1000 for a quick sale. Please PM me.
  2. To those who are UK based, this is about 660 pounds - depending on exchange rate fluctuations.
  3. This is a rosewood-ended concertina I'm selling on behalf of the owner. It is a 46-button instrument with metal buttons, 6-fold bellows in what appears to be excellent condition (some loss of black stain through wear in places but no leaks). Date of manufacture was November 1921 - prime period. It has been tuned to modern concert pitch at some time. Comes with a very nice fitted modern case. He is looking for offers around C$1200.
  4. I think the answer is that you keep the instrument in a humidified room in the winter. Short outings aren't enough to cause major issues.
  5. Having sent this instrument to Europe to a buyer who then decided it was not what he was after, it is available for sale in the UK for the next 2weeks. It is a mahogany- ended Lachenal, restored, steel reeds, Original 5-fold bellows, patched but airtight. It plays well.
  6. Hey John, Sorry to hear this. It may be worth putting on Facebook too. I can do it if you like Paul
  7. Does anyone know if these guys make their own reeds or are they the ones from the Czech republic (or Slovakia, not sure which) that others are using?
  8. It would be interesting to see the reeds. I wonder if they are the Czech (or Slovak) ones, riveted tongues and cut to shape. Maybe someone can come up with a picture. They do seem to be a little critical of vintage instruments and the competition on their web site.
  9. This instrument is now sold via ebay.
  10. Now on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182933242155?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  11. Pics of the left reed pan as requested. Note that some of the valves had curled and have been replaced.
