    Looking for octave (below) C/G Anglo

    I am hoping to find a low C/G Anglo like the one Cormac is playing here. Any leads appreciated. Thanks in advance. David
  6. Hi-- Are the air-button and drone included in your count of 32 buttons? 

    Which model is it? Can I see some pictures?

    What is the measurement across the flat (not from point to point) of the playing surface.?

    As you can tell, I am very interested. And I have the money for the right concertina.

    Dog Days in Ithaca?

    Thanks to you both. I assume that Joel does not want to be found -- for a variety of reasons.

    Dog Days in Ithaca?

    This is probably a dead thread, but I'd love to get back in contact with Joel. He sold me my first Anglo, which I played for over twenty years. . He doesn't owe me money and he never did anything to hurt or insult me. I just like him and his larger than life persona. Thanks for any help....

    Morse Ceili CG - SOLD

    Of all the hybrids the Morse is the best. Light, very responsive, good volume, clear sound. The only thing I'm not very fond of are the black plastic buttons. However, since I don't see them while I'm playing it's not very important. Given that the new ones go for about $2,800, at $1,800 the Morse is a bargain.

    Dear Peter, If you don't want it, don't buy it. Welcome to the world of capitalism. Are you resentful that he got there before you? If the concertina is worth £1,760 then what' the problem? Do you resent the automobile dealer or the wine merchant?

    Jeffries Bros 31 button C/G for sale

    I played this concertina yesterday. It speaks well, with good volume. I didn't check the tuning but it seemed to be perfect as I played the chords. The bellows are in good condition. There is no rust on the reeds, which means that the instrument has been kept in dry surroundings. The reeds have been filed a bit but with an instrument this old that's to be expected. The concertina does not need any work and is ready to play without any adjustment required. I liked it. It has a classic Jeffries sound-- very clear, very bright, and it responds well. If I were in need of another concertina I'd certainly consider this one. The price that I was quoted is very fair. In Ireland it would sell for well over €5,000. I met the seller once twenty years ago, and again yesterday. I have no financial interest in this concertina and I am happy to help the owner sell it. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
  14. SOLD... I thought I’d have another go on the button accordion, having played one about 30 years ago. But I stopped playing the box to focus on playing the concertina (I also play flute and fiddle). I bought the Bouebe with high hopes but I have some shoulder issues that are making it too painful to continue. So I am moving this along. This is a practically brand new Saltarelle "Bouebe" 23 key/8 bass, Irish button accordion in B/C, with backpack style gig bag. It was purchased brand new last month, from Martin Quinn’s accordion store in Kiltgan, Co. Wicklow Ireland, and hand-carried to the US. Martin is a professional accordion player, repairman and dealer. He did a complete setup on this Bouebe, including tuning the reeds, setting the button action and changing the bass buttons to the "modern" style. It plays beautifully. I am reluctant to sell it but it’s too painful to continue to play it. It comes with new backpack style gig bag and two Saltarelle leather shoulder straps. This is an opportunity to get a fully set up, brand-new box at a reduced price. I will be happy to send more pictures. The Button Box sells these (when they can get a B/C) for $2300.00. Shipping Internationally, buyer to pay shipping and insurance fees. It looks just like this: https://www.eaglemusicshop.com/prod/but ... bouebe.htm
