  24. hello again Chriss lust is the downfall of many a concertina player!!!
  25. hello all re the concertinas for sale.I know these instruments well having played them on my weekly visits to the late owner both with him and solo when he was to ill to play them. the dipper/scard,Bb/F jeffries and the g/d crabb(which came from roger edwards) are top notch. the g/d jeffries is very loud so much so that we named it the trumpet no quite the jeffries sound. the 45 button jeffries has the right sound but needs some work ie the buttons are a tad to high and the reed layout is a bit wheatstone/jeffries but could be a nice instrument I had this on loan for a short time.these are personal views others may think diffrent.if I can help at all let me know.as for the price well!!!
