  1. I have decided to put my Morse Ceili in G/D up for sale - I recently acquired a Kensington and no longer play the Morse.  I never really took to the G/D.

     

    It's #952 and was made in December 2011

     

    It's quick, light and loud as all Morse instruments are.

     

    I has a draw A on button 2a on the left hand side (a Jody Kruskal mod) but is otherwise a standard Jeffries layout.

     

    Comes with the original hard case.

     

    Buyer to cover shipping from Bermuda - last time I checked it would be approximately $300 fully insured via courier.

     

    Happy to do a Skype call with any interested buyers.

     

    I'm looking for $2500 - so with shipping you'd be in for $2800 ono

  2. Just this week I took ownership of Kensington concertina #70.

     

    I am astounded by the quality of the build.  It's such a beautiful instrument with a lightening quick action.

     

    I have been playing hybrid instruments for a number of years and the dynamic range of the long scale "traditional" reeds is amazing.  I am loving playing tunes that I'd not played for a while and finding nuances that I couldn't develop before.

     

    I had the instrument shipped to Dana before it was sent on to me and he was amazing to deal with.  He gave the instrument the tuning that follows the instrument from new, made me hand rests sized for my hands and went to all the trouble of forwarding the instrument to me here in Bermuda.  What a gentleman.

     

    I would recommend Kensington concertinas and dealing with Dana.  Obviously with any purchase of this magnitude there is trepidation but the whole process has been wonderful and I couldn't ask for more with this instrument.  It offers far more than I will ever be able to achieve!

     

    Here's a couple of pictures and a little tune.  Hope I don't embarrass myself!

  3. I have a 30 button C/G Clover kit - #51

     

    The kit was originally $1400 and I paid the extra $240 for papered Wakker bellows.  I sent the instrument to Wim for tuning and adjustments when it was complete.

     

    Comes with a soft gig bag.

     

    Insured shipping via courier from Bermuda will be about $200

  4. I have a Stagi C/G 30 button - my first concertina.  I has the usual Stagi foibles - it's a little breathy, creaky bellows and inconsistent action - it was good to get me going. Comes with a hard case

     

    Has to ship from Bermuda - maybe figure about $50 - $100 shipping

     

    Looking for about $450

  5. It looked as though he just cut and pasted the wanted ad and said he had one to sell!  It didn't even make grammatical sense.

     

    Please contact kenneth.kron@aol.com to purchase C/G anglo - traditional concertina reeds

     

    Definitely a scammer
