  1. Ideally I'd like to get what I paid for it, around $4000.00 but I'm willing to go lower, so if you want to make an offer you can send me a PM.
  2. Ditto for mine as well, no heat, no warmth. The ends on mine have some sort of clear coat on them so the ends are glossy not like tortoise shell I've seen elsewhere.
  3. I personally could not say with any certainty if the material is natural tortoise shell or not. I have heard that certain knowledgeable people can tell by burning a small piece of the material, I'm not willing to do that to a high end concertina!!!
  4. Wheatstone Aeola with raised tortoise shell ends. Model #17 Serial Number 33234. Made in 1934. 50 keys with air release button, 6-fold original bellows, steel reeds, riveted action, original leather case. It has the standard 48 key layout with the addition of a high D#/Eb on the left and a high C#/Db on the right. It has recently been tuned and overhauled by The Button Box. A change in my financial status dictates that I can no longer afford to have more than one top of the line concertina. All reasonable offers will be considered. I'm in the Santa Cruz mountains in California if anyone wants to come by and play it. It's really a wonderful sounding instrument.
  5. Thank you all for the advice, I was finally able to get the reed pan out, I switched the reeds but I also noticed that the push valve was not seating properly, so I straightened it out and put everything back together and it all works fine now. Thanks again for all the good advice.
  6. I have a Wheatsone 48 key English concertina that recently has developed a wheezing out of tune sound on the push side of the low F#. I'm not sure what's going on but I thought it might be a problem with the valve so I opened it up but I couldn't pull out the reed pan to take a look at the valve. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with the note and how to repair it?
  7. Wheatstone 48 key treble concertina. Made in 1929 Serial # 32354. Metal ends, six fold bellows and air release button. Comes with a blocked Button Box hardshell case. $2500.00 http://img25.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=...0_122_410lo.jpg
