  1. Hi, Lester, Thanks for your story. Maybe there are more than 10 people who play one in the world, even if has wacky fingering!
  2. Thanks, David, I will try to get in touch with Nick.
  3. Hello, Greg, I got your email. I will be taking photos tonight or twm (Sat.) I'm not sure what you mean by "the bellows away from the handrests." I'll be taking a picture of the part of the bellows that is damaged. I don't think I can get a photo of the reed pan because I don't feel I know enough to take the instrument apart that far. Is there any other way I can get the information to you? Please send me your email so I can send photos to you. I don't know how to post them to this forum. Thanks!
  4. Hello, Please look at my entry under Buy and Sell. I just discovered that the concertina I bought in London 38 years ago is a Jeffries 51 button duet. Even though I don't play I have loved having it just for its sheer beauty. In financial straits and need to sell. This forum is a wonderful family. I've enjoyed reading the posts. Please help me find a new owner for this unique insturment - someone who will love it and play it. Thanks. Lila Henry, PO Box 773865, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477 USA (970) 879-6412
  5. I have just discovered that the conertina I bought in London 38 years ago is a 51 button Jeffries duet. From reading on the net I realize this is a very rare instrument. I would like it to go to someone who will love it and play it. I don't play (I couldn't find a teacher or any books on it - this was pre-internet .) -I'm a healer, not a musician - and I need the money. When I bought it , it was leaking sound and I had it fixed. Fixed, not restored, as I had no idea what I had. I haven't looked inside it since it was fixed, and I don't know how he did it. There's a small hole in the bellows (six fold, with gold fillagree and what looks like paper decals on the inside of each fold.) I think it's in C, and it is tuned slightly higher than 440. All the buttons work. Please contact me through this forum or at (970) 879-6412 (United States). My mailing address is PO Box 773865, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477, USA. I would like to sell it fairly, the sooner the better. Thank you to the concertina family I havediscovered on the net. Maybe I'll learn to play a less unique one! Lila Henry
