  1. Yep. I still lust for one of those, MIke!
  2. I've ventured into Chemnitzer and it's really just a large Anglo with some Jeffries duet elements thrown in. Another set of fingerngs to learn but, depending on the box, not that hard to play. The big multi-stop ones get pretty heavy but so do big accordions. Compared to the english boxes, they come pretty cheap over here. I'd say, buy it and try it out. It's not a life-long committment.
  3. I'm with Gary on voting for the key of C!
  4. And the one in the picture has flat ends, I believe, while the one in Alex's shop has raised ends. Still, quite a large beastie to be sure.
  5. I still have the kapek. Or an Arno Arnold in C.
  6. cjakes8 - I have a oouple that would be good starters. Where are you located?
  7. If I had the extra money it would go well in my square concertina corner.
  8. I have a 35, 42, 48, 57 and 66. I still want an 80!
  9. I'd never assume to be an authority but this appears to be a small Chemnitzer-type box, given the 3-row layout shown in the picture. For the same price or little more you can get an actual Chemnitzer or Bandoneon of good German lineage.
  10. StevenTx, mainly for fooling around with. Brass is a different sound to steel.
  11. Back when I first started playing, in addition to a Morse Baritone and a Jack, I had a brass-reeded Lachinal. Does anyone have a brass reeded EC that they'd be willing to part with for hot a princely sum? Kind regards, Rod
  12. Bob Tedrow has one of his Baritones on consignment, as well.
  13. Ask Dowright about it also.
  14. Jeremy, get hold of Greg Jowaisas who is on C.Net. I just got a really nice 20b Jones from him and I know that he will likely have something that would fit your needs. He's well recommended by many folks, including me.
  15. McBadger, if you could either give me the buyer's contact info or send him a msg for me, if he wants to part with it, I'd be interested in buying it back. Kind regards, Rod
  16. I started on a Jack which I bought used. Quickly went to a Morse Albion. The price jump made me gulp but it was a far nicer instrument. Then I went to Crane duet. Oh well. +1 on the sentiment that a good box will hold its value. But baritones won't be cheap. And as you catch the free-reed flu, it will just cost you more. Hey, it's only money, right? Kind regards, Rod
  17. Peter, dd you sell your 35b Crabb yet?
  18. Do any of our c.net members know of a repair/tuning shop in Japan? I recently sold a Macccan to a new player there and it was a bit out of tune when I sent it. Give all of the CITES fun to get it there, it would probably be better if it stayed in country. Kind regards, Rod
  19. Thanks, RAc. I hadn't seen this thread. I don't know that I want to pay min $200 for the name via an internet broker, so I think I'll restart the site under craneconcertina.net. Moving the content from the archive shouldn't be hard, or we can just redo it. What do you think?
