  1. This could be really useful for someone if they need a left ebony end for a 64 button extended treble Aeola and/ or a case which fits it perfectly. The serial number is 35174 - a Model 18B sold in 1939. I have no idea where the rest of it is. I just have the end - i.e. - the ebony end plus 32 buttons, action box and the leather case. All buttons work well(!). The case looks like it was made for it as it is a perfect fit. (The concertina is 7.5 inches across). I'm tempted to frame the end and put it on my wall but it would be a terrible shame to do so if someone has a desperate need for it - so here's your chance. If I get a reasonable offer then it's not going to end up on my wall. To be honest I've no idea of the value - it's not something you see every day!
  2. Doubt you'll ever see another.
  3. I noticed that the auction house changed the description before the auction started to confirm that it was in fact an extended treble. Hope the buyer noticed the change.
  4. Model 24 (Boyd) according to Ledgers - therefore 56 key extended treble with raised metal ends. http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD01/PAGES/D1P0750S.HTM
  5. I saw it posted on ebay and suggested to seller that it's an Inimitable but I've had no response.
  6. The seller has listed as only posting to UK so I assume this prevents searches outside the UK.
  7. I owned one of these and sold it on a couple of years ago. 35 button from memory. It had been restored by David Robertson. It looked and played like new. I'll ask the current owner if he is interested in selling.
  8. From your description it sounds like it's a Treble.
  9. That might be a Morse Albion, as the Geordie has 45 buttons. I've tried some of these, and I found them to be fast and responsive with a lovely tone.
  10. Yes; it looks just like my 35 key Lachenal New Model F Tenor, only mine's in a much nicer condition having been restored by David Robertson. I had been tempted to convert to a standard tenor but in the end liked it too much as it is, as you can just pick it up and play without having to give any thought to the fingering. My wife, who plays mandolin, can pick up a tenor guitar tuned CGDA and accompany this concertina.
  11. It's always best to try before you buy if you can. Failing that, the distance selling regulations allow you to return within 7 days if bought from a retailer. My first concertina was a Hohner, and whilst I only had it for a matter of weeks before upgrading, it at least allowed me to decide whether I wanted to invest in a vintage model.
  12. Steve, looking again at the photos, it appears that the lowest note is probably C; as the button is red. As a baritone starts at G, I reckon that what you have is in fact a bass.
  13. I intend to be at Swaledale Squeeze in May, so if you still have it then I'd most certainly be interested in viewing with a view to potentially purchasing. Perhaps you could try pm'ing me?
