  1. Du wohnst in Hamburg? Kennst Du Nils? Hast Du Lust, im Mai zum nächsten Concertina-Treffen ins Wendland zu kommen? Ich verkaufe übrigens gerade jede Mengs Aeolas - von ganz klein bis ganz groß;-)
  2. Ich habe nachgefragt: der Verkäufer wohnt in Graz... Aber zur Not gibt es noch die Post;-)
  3. My friend can not play his two concertinas anymore and asked me to help with the sale. The first one is a Geordie baritone with hand-finished reeds. It was made in 2016 and cost 3.300€ at the time. The second one is a Rose treble bought new in 2021 for 2600€. I haven't seen them myself, but they is supposed to be in good playing order. Please contact me and I will forward you to the owner...
  4. This one seems to be sold... However, I'm selling the same instrument - a 56 key extended treble with tortoiseshell-ends, but from the best period ( 31203 ) in top condition, restored by Steve Dickinson... ( plus the matching tenor-treble ( 31363 ). Details on request.
  5. David, I'm not so concerned about the overall weight. I have my top Aeolas adjusted for minimum spring-pressure ( 50g ) and low button-travel for ultra fast playing. At that level I would most likely notice a difference between normal Aeola buttons and glass ones. However, I doubt that "normal" players would notice that difference... Anyway: it is a very fine and desirable instrument at a fair price!
  6. A nice looking EE 64-key BT model 16 is coming up at auction. Link A couple of years ago two similar BTs fetched a lot of money at another auction. Nice and rare instrument from a good period anyway...
  7. They are quite common on Lachenals ( I had a few ), but I never had any problems with them. However they are relatively heavy compared to wood-cored metal buttons!?
  8. I did build a MIDI 40 key ES concertina a couple of years ago using hall-effect sensors and magnets in the keys. I also made a 30 key anglo, which I never quite finished. Both played via an APP on an I-Phone and got their power through the USB line. For a while the ES MIDI worked via bluetooth: Concertina 2.0 I since have been working on a system to convert one of Aeolas to midi without tempering with the original instrument...
  9. Chris currently has a G/D Dipper for sale! Probably not much longer now... Just the thing for a professional;-) Link
  10. This one is based in Germany. Keep in mind: about 500€ will buy you a brand-new set of six or seven-fold all leather bellows - should you decide that you need them...
  11. Are you looking for single or double-action? Where are you based? I have three Aeola basses for sale...
  12. Where are you based? Is it possible for another member to visit and test-play?

    I asked the seller a couple of obvious questions. The only answer was: 5000 Pound 😏
  14. I have reported them on ebay Germany... Let's see.
  15. Or to be precise: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/334373048567?hash=item4dda2fd0f7:g:OI8AAOSwuAdiN8wA
  16. I'm quite sure that it is in fact a model 22, which is a better instrument. On Model 21 the endplates are flat and held by screws from the top, on model 22 the endplates are bent into the wooden frames - as far as I know... I had several of both models.
  17. I have a German-made instrument with the same layout as Peter's - piano on both sides.... I had hoped to be able to play it easily, as I play the piano, but it works quite differently...
  18. I noticed this Eddy at auction. I'm not sure what kind of system it is. I guess that it could be a Jeffries duet!? Link
  19. What exactly is he looking for? Double or single action? C- or G-bass? I might soon be sellig three different Aeola basses... Located in Germany.
  20. I sold several concertinas to the US as "small accordion" and there never were any duties...
  21. As it looks, the piccolo is sold now...
  22. In the very early days my friend Jürgfen Suttner restored two of my Jeffries and my Linota and took measurements of the instruments. As a good German engineer ( his father had an engineering company ) he further developed the principles while sticking to the traditional ways. I had both my 38 key Jeffries and a metal ended A4 on a skale. If I remember rightly, the Suttner was 400g lighter. Sound and action are quite different, but it is realy hard to decide which one is "better"... Try to play as many as possible different instruments before you spend so much money! If you can make it, go to Chris Algar's place and spend an afternoon testing. I picked my ES ME TT out of a dozen similar boxes.
