  10. Hello Willem, I have sent you a Personal Message.
  11. Hello Mike, I am glad to help out. It is better for these concertinas to be played than to sit on a mantle piece or a museum for display only. Cheers, Ben
  12. I have updated the ad with the serial numbers which the seller has just sent to me via Whats App. Thanks
  13. I have been asked by a friend in South Africa to place an ad for anyone interested in buying Wheatstone Maccaan Duet concertinas. These concertinas are in mint condition and were left as part of an inheritance by the seller's father. I believe that these concertinas were made in the early 1950's. I am not a Duet player but I think that the concertina set includes a 80 keys/button duet (serial number 36349), a 68 key/button duet concertina (36396) and one that has 57 keys /buttons (36372). If anyone is interested please call Rose Palmer + 27 65 199 8698 (South Africa). (PS I am not getting any commission but trying to help out a lady who is getting ready for retirement and who has no access to a computer),
  14. The concertina sold on ebay. Thanks.
  15. I checked out the blog...and no mention was made if the Kingwood Edgely concertina is a Vintage Model or a Professional (hybrid) concertina. It is a beautiful concertina......I wonder if Frank makes Vintage models in the key of G/D?
  16. Congratulations on your rare find!
  17. Try to contact Frank Edgely...he collaborated/worked with Harold Herrington. His email address is: edgelyconcertinas@gmail.com......or phone him at: 519 991-3100. He lives in Windsor, Canada. Frank makes similar reed units as what the late Harold Herrington did.
  18. Greg Jowaisas and Bob Tedrow are the best guys to answer your questions. Bob did an excellent job on one of my concertinas.
  19. Here is my spanking brand new Dipper C/G 40 button anglo made by Colin and Rosalie Dipper (Date: October 30, 2017). I have also added a photo of Colin and Rosalie DIpper...and another photo of my Dipper C/G 40 button along side my new Wifra Ab/Eb (Date: October 17, 2017) ...built by Willie van Wyk from South Africa.
  20. Here is my brand new "Wifra" Ab/Eb 40 button anglo concertina made by 85 year old Willie van Wyk from South Africa. Willie makes Perspex reedpans which will not warp in the Canadian humid summers and freezing winter weather.
  21. The 30 button concertina is now sold privately to a repeat customer in the UK.

    Dipper Anglo

    A Dipper may come up for sale on this forum about......once in about every 5 to 7 years. My suggestion would be to contact John Dipper (son of Colin and Rosalie Dipper) @ http://www.johndipper.co.uk/..... .he is also a member of this forum....and check with him if any of the Dipper family's customers are upgrading their current Dipper anglos...and who may want to sell the older concertina to fund the new order... I am picking up my brand new Dipper anglo next month from the Dippers......after a 9 year wait. The waiting list is long. Good luck.
