  6. yep. i'd be a fool to sell it. and WOW! number 23 is a gorgeous concertina!!! best of luck with it! Who ever buys will be very lucky.
  7. Me too! Very lucky to have bought my first Carroll from him. Still playing it.
  8. I'm fairly sure your right in thinking G/d in old pitch. still sounds fantastic!
  9. Hi Paul, I haven't actually seen the original post but i think i read something else someone put up. Thats an amazing story and thanks for sharing your info with me. Any everyone else too. Sean
  10. Thats great to hear. There are so many myths and theories. Just had to clear it up for myself. Would accordion reed steel be too soft to be used to replace a broken jeffries reeds? say hohner reed steel?
  11. perfect. thanks guy. and what about using clock springs for steel? I've also notice that they are all the same width (well the ones i've seen) Any reason for this?
  12. Hi, I've been reading a few bits and pieces about Jeffries reeds in particular and it has come up a few times that they were made out of Stainless spring steel rather than carbon spring steel, is this true and is that what gives them that unmistakable sound? thanks Sean
  13. here's the reply i got for anyone just incase they were considering looking at these... Dear Sean, I have taken one apart to show the " works ". Wouldn't it be hard to have blocks to allow the reeds to be placed round the " outside " in in a circle. I suspect that you have never had an English concertina apart so cannot understand a different design where there wouldn't be any blocks like you get in all the " budget " Martini, Stentor, Stephanelli, Scaralati, Hohner, Stagi & a few French ones too. Theese sell between £200 & £800 or more. I understand that apart from being Italian made they are accordion type / shape reeds. Very many thanks for taking the bother to write to me. Why not buy one & see if they get your aproval, if they do, & want to buy quantity of them we supply you @ trade prices ( & allow the diff. of the first one as a credit on the new order ) B. r., J. P.
  14. link to website- http://www.boorinwoodmusic.com/
