  1. Hi Peter, When you've looked at your friend's Crane, if you are still interested it might be best to email me direct at bonnygreencolin@gmail.com with a copy to my wife, Sonja, at bonnygreengarden@gmail.com as I shall be out of the country for a couple of weeks from next Monday. She is aware of your interest! Cheers, Colin
  2. Hi Peter, Yes it is a 55 button Crane, but curved arrangement of buttons. I looked at my own Crabb Crane and I can see that they do appear more like the chevron than a curve. Incidentally in your machine is the bottom button of the middle row B below the C to the left? I don't have a button there on mine. I have played my wife's duet from time to time and though there is a slightly different feel to the curved layout I've not actually found it a problem. Cheers, Colin
  3. My wife has a Lachenal triumph Crane in excellent condition for sale. She is asking £2,450. Please see attached picture. Location Devon UK
  4. THanks for info. On my initial reply I hadn't noticed enquiry was from USA. I remember a few years ago having to open my bag at a security check at a German airport when my concertina puzzled them in the x-ray scan!
  5. Obviously there would also be cost of postage to USA
  6. I have a Lachenal CG in good playing condition with case (but doesn't lock). I'm selling it for a friend. Asking £420 but he would probably consider sensible offer. Colin

    Perfect Jones Anglo

    A few years ago I bought a Jones perfect Anglo from Chris Algar, and then had a very good restoration job done by David Robertson. The result - a beautiful, sweet-toned instrument ideal for singing. I find I rarely use it however and I'm thinking of selling it. It's basically a C/G instrument with extra buttons so that all notes over a 2 octave range are available on both push and pull, and therefore it is relatively easy to play in any key - giving the flexibility of the duet or English with the action of the anglo. The scales for D, E,F, A & Bb are quite logical & not difficult to remember. Can anyone advise as to what kind of price I should be asking - bearing in mind that ebay prices seem to have been a bot depressed of late?

    I'd be interested in the price - particularly as I have what looks like an identical model - Crane duet (not that i'm selling in the near future at least).

    Lachenal or Jones

    I have a 30 key DG Anglo, serial number 78859, which I believed to be a Lachenal, but someone has suggested it might be a Jones. There is no name on the instrument, which is wooden ended with bon eo r ivory buttons. Can anyone give a positive identification from this information?
