  1. Thanks Gail, I'll get your contact details from Richard and pass them on to Peter. He's a MMM member but seldom dances now. Thanks, Andy
  2. A friend has been struggling to teach himself to play English concertina, and has decided he would really benefit from some face-to-face lessons. He lives on the Wirral on Merseyside. I did suggest online lessons might be an option, but he said he struggles with technology. If anyone has any suggestions of tutors in his area who might be able to assist, I will pass their details on to him to then make contact. Thanks, Andy
  3. This concertina has now been sold privately.
  4. I'm still looking for a buyer for my C/G Crabb Anglo, so I am reducing the price to £1750. Although the Crabb is living in the UK at the moment, transatlantic enquiries are most welcome. Andy
  5. My Crabb concertina has been listed for sale for a while onTheo's The Box Place website at £2450. I am keen that it moves on to a good home to get played, and have decided to help the process by significantly reducing the price down to £2000. The history of this concertina was discussed here in a thread a number of years ago with definitive input from Geoffrey Crabb. He confirmed it was one of a batch of ten made in 1960 by his father and brother. I purchased the concertina a few decades later from Chris Algar. Since then, Theo has undertaken some restorative work on it including replacing the bellows/reedpan gaskets and some of the button bushings. In terms of its specification: - Steel reeds - Metal ends - 6 fold bellows - Lachenal/Wheatstone button layout - Leather carry case. The concertina is currently residing with Theo at The Box Place, so he can also help with any specific questions. Feel free to make me a sensible offer. I might even consider a D/G melodeon in part-ex!!
  6. Brilliant! Thanks Geoff, that's great. I couldn't have wished for more Best regards, Andy PS Must remember to come here again - nice people!!!
  7. Hi, My first post on the forum, as I tend to frequent the 'other' one, so hi to Melnet friends I'm looking for information on history of my C/G Crabb Anglo, purchased many many years ago from Chris Algar who had obviously done some restoration work on it - new bellows, straps etc. I've looked at the various items and images about Crabbs on the site, and touched some beautiful ones. But this one looks more like a 'Ford' than a 'Bentley'. On LH, it is stamped Crabb 14141 Made in England . On the RH, H Crabb & Son Makers London N1 I've attached a couple of images - couldn't manage close ups of stamps but both oval. As you can see, it has been used! Could it have been made for Salvation Army perhaps? Many thanks, Andy
