    WTB - F Tenor English Concertina

    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.

    Morse Geordie Tenor For Sale

    From your description it sounds like it's a Treble.

    Morse Geordie Tenor For Sale

    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.

    Lachenal New Model Tenor On Ebay

    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.

    Hohner D40 And Other Concertinas That Suck

    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.

    Tentative Sale: Rock Chidley Baritone

    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.

    Tentative Sale: Rock Chidley Baritone

    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?

    Tentative Sale: Rock Chidley Baritone

    I couldn't send the pm as it says you cannot accept new messages for some reason. I might be interested. Did you ever work out the key layout? How are the reed pans (are they warped in any way?). Finally, I'm assuming you are in Yorkshire? Thanks.

    Tentative Sale: Rock Chidley Baritone

    I've sent you a pm Steve.
  11. I had a very nice Stagi Tenor Treble 56 button English Concertina for sale last year and it sold for around £175 on Ebay from memory. That's probably the price you will be looking at.

    Beware Of Scams!

    Another one? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/C-Jeffries-30-2-key-Anglo-system-antique-Concertina-/162003120362?hash=item25b82370ea:g:~4IAAOSwmmxW4bua I have reported to ebay as clearly too good to be true.

    Baritone Wanted

    There's a Morse Geordie Baritone for sale at the Music Room's stand at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for Celtic Connections just now. A friend of mine was playing it as I came out from watching Simon Thoumire's Strathspeys and Surreals show, and he had no issues with lack of air. He said he felt that the tone was not quite as sweet as an Albion he tried the year before, but that's a matter of personal taste I suppose. It sounded pretty good to me. £2,800 ish from memory.
