  1. yep thats it. sorry i'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to stuff like that. they are certainly running with grain. but i just found it strange with the different types of wood. Just wondering but would they have used any other types of wood that was out of the ordinary in any other concertinas you may have come across?
  2. Em it could be the model. This one though i think has two reeds at the bottom of the reed pan vertically, the rest are horizontal and one reed inside the outside row of the left side (if you get me) like in the middle of the pan.
  3. sorry having a bit of trouble uploading photos. Yeah it does. seems very hard anyways. i'll keep trying with the photos.
  4. The past few months i've been comparing concertinas and studying the construction of different makes. I've noticed that in an old c. jeffries stamped 38 button anglo that the wood to make the action box is very dark. I originally thought most of the wood was maple but are there other possibilities it could be? A hard mahogany? Maybe its just got darker over time. Also just wondering but could the reed pan / bellows frame be any thing other than maple? Any ways i throw it over to the experts again. Any info greatly appreciated, Sean
  5. Brilliant Chris. thanks a million! great help. And Geoff was kind enough to get in contact too, again. Thanks, Sean

  11. thanks a million Geoff! Sorted now. Thanks for all the info everyone.
  12. thanks guys. great help. and then what about the metal buttons? Would they have been silver or an alloy of some sort? they seem to be heavy enough?
  13. Hi, another question for the experts. What are the metal buttons on an old jeffries made of and also what are the reed tongues made from (would i be right in thinking spring steel) I'll leave it up to you guys.
  14. I'm the man in Ireland that he got it from. I had tuned it to C sharp/ g sharp because i wanted it to play myself but had to sell it unfortunately. nice instrument.
  15. Hi, this is a problem i've come across recently but are there many people out there that can replace a broken reed tongue with out replacing the whole reed? I don't know how many people have this trouble? I'm in Ireland and i don't know of anyone here????? Any thought?
  16. Hi all. I'm doing a bit of a home project and wondering is anyone selling a set of (traditional) steel reeds (brass frames/ steel tongue) for a 30 button anglo by any chance or even an english concertina? oh C/g if possible? Please let me know - 0872800980@vodafone.ie thanks Sean (ireland)
  17. Hi, i'm just throwing it out there because i'm curious, How many people have made they're own concertina and how did they turn out in the end? Either with old reeds or bits of other concertinas or from scratch.
  18. Just wondering what was traditonally used to varnish/finish say an ebony or amboyna ended concertina? Any help would be great? thanks ofearghail7
