  1. 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
  2. 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.
