  1. I have just re-listed on ebay but prefer to sell here.
  2. I have reduced the price to 995 pounds.
  3. Thanks Ken. I have noticed a few times that I have to go hunting for my listings. I'll see if there is something I can change to make it more visible.
  4. Now on Ebay. Open to sensible offers on c.net.
  5. Relisted for 1500 pounds. If not sold it will become a G/D!
  6. 1600 pounds converts to C$2770. I could let it go for C$2700 plus shipping. I may convert to G/D if it doesn’t sell, although it is such a nice player i wantedto see if anyone was looking for an Ab/Bb. .
  7. True. It's always a bit of a crap shoot.
  8. 151369 also a rosewood coloured mahogany type 30 button, steel reeds 149180, Rosewood 30b 173565, cheers, another 151369, 32 button rosewood 144444, 30 button rosewood 197472
  9. I put a price in Canadian dollars but it showed up in pounds. Corrected in case you thought i was being a little greedy on that one!
  10. I have just listed a newly restored rosewood Lachenal concertina on ebay. I prefer to sell through this site so contact me if you're interested. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184372082901
  11. Continuing the sale of my restored instruments, here is a very nice Lachenal 30-button anglo. It has the simpler fretwork and 5-fold bellows. It is a higher grade instrument than the basic mahogany ones with a rosewood coloured finish (original). The better quality is reflected in its playability as it a responsive player with a good set of steel reeds. It is fully restored with new pads, handstraps and valves, turned to modern pitch A=440. Located in Toronto, Canada. Price reduced to C$1725 (995 pounds) plus shipping/insurance. I have a number of other instruments including 2 rosewood 30-button C/G Lachenals, a rosewood 30-button Ab/Eb Lachenal, a 27-button Jeffries/Crabb and a 39-button Jeffries/Crabb, all recently restored. Contact me for me more information.
  12. A beautiful 64-button extended tenor treble for sale. In very nice condition, bellows are original and very good. This one was made in January 1919, from the golden era. 6-fold bellows The instrument is tight and plays beautifully. Typically selling for 3700+ at the dealers. I am asking for 2900 pounds equivalent (C$5000). The instrument is in Toronto, Canada but will ship anywhere (shipping and insurance extra). Message me if interested.
  13. One of the few positives of this Covid episode is that I have had the time to essentially clear my backlog of restorations and customer repairs (lots of broken customers...). I am now on to the ones I have been avoiding. I am looking at two 32-button Lachenal rosewood instruments for restoration, Instrument one has one badly broken end and the other end is a crude home-made end plate. The other instrument has one good end and the other end is damaged but also of a much finer fretwork. I have been waiting in hope of replacement ends turning up on otherwise scrap instruments but I am moving towards the idea of having new ends cut. Is there anyone out there who already has a digital drawing for Lachenal end plates who would be ready to sell the program as I am in touch someone who is equipped to do the work but it seems a shame to go through the process again if the work is already done. Finally, I have a beautiful 30-button instrument that is completely missing one end (one end, bellows and reed pans are present). Does anyone have a full Lachenal end only, to sell? Thanks.
  14. Message sent to you - slightly off topic.
