Auction, 9Th March, Glasgow. Wheatstone No 29413. in Buy & Sell Posted March 12, 2013 What did Alexander Prince (or was it Horni) tell a gathering of Duet players, back in the '20's according to Tommy Williams, something like " You men will be too old by the time you can afford a decent Duet to be able to become good at playing it". Things have changed it is true but I don't see £3000 odd as being a crazy price . High quality concertinas are pretty cheap in comparison to high quality editions of most other instruments. Most professional musicians are going to have to find far more than £3000 to buy an acceptable version of their instrument for public performance. You can spend a lot, lot more than that just on a violin bow, let alone the violin itself.
