  1. This instrument is now sold via ebay.
  2. Now on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182933242155?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  3. Pics of the left reed pan as requested. Note that some of the valves had curled and have been replaced.
  4. A beautiful example of a 40-button Wheatstone. This one, 58854, model 7A, C/G, dates to 1965 and is a fine player. 8-fold bellows in perfect condition. Comes with a good case. Looking for US$2300 or will consider close offers.
  5. This beautiful Jeffries Brothers concertina was bought from the Button Box in 2008. It was with my son for the last few years but he has decided he's an English concertina and box player.. It is in excellent condition and is a fast player I'm open to offers around U|S|$7000 .
  6. Less value to an Irish trad player I would say and that is generally where the anglo market is driven. However, for a serious singer or English style player it would be something special. A smaller market but if you've got the money you won't do better than a Dipper.
  7. Continuing to sell instruments recently restored, I have a rare beast here. It is a mahogany ended Lachenal (stained rosewood) in Bflat/F. The instrument has new handstraps, pads and valves and is is tuned to A-440. Original bellows have some reinforced corners and are now tight and look good. Narrow cracks in the ends have been stabilized. This one plays well and has a strong sound. Steel reeds. Asking offers around US$1100
  8. Sold. Donation pending once payment received.
  9. Pics added above. It comes with the original hexagonal case. No key or carrying handle on the case but not in bad condition. The handstraps shown in the photos have been replaced with new leather straps.
  10. Hi Bill, I believe it is. I'll check it when I get home tonight.
  11. Just finished working on this one. Pictures to come tomorrow. Rosewood ends, 5-fold bellows with some repairs but tight, Broad steel reeds and it plays nicely. This would be a great starter instrument and for sessions. I'm looking for US$1000 plus shipping. I'd prefer to sell here than on ebay.
  12. Yes, as long as they have a Paypal account. Watch out for the fees though.
  13. A few of us have had trouble dealing with him. Also, he acted very strangely when selling that eight-sided Wheatstone. he wouldn't answer questions sensibly and the price was up and down like...well, you know what. It looks like this one may be a rebuild Stephen?
  14. I get this message: "We're sorry we couldn't find an answer for you. Unfortunately, this seller is unable to respond to your question. We suggest reviewing the item again to see if your answer is in the seller's listing."
  15. Maybe he's blocked me! Not sure if you can do that mind you. I did see the steel reed stamp having thought it must be brass.
  16. Interestingly, you can't ask questions. http://contact.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?FindAnswers&redirect=0&iid=172225606147&requested=gpanda123
  17. It's a different one Don. I've seen Robin's beastie and worked on Ian's Wheatstone. Ian's has some really big reeds and basically has a treble size reed pan surrounded by the bass size chambers.
  18. adding a few photos... it's nearly Christmas!
