  1. I'd be seriously tempted if it was in the UK. Unfortunately, import duties mean that it would cost more than one sourced locally.
  2. If it had been a tenor then I would be a likely buyer. Excellent playing by the way.
  3. I've been on the hunt for a tenor treble for a wee while now. I'm hoping to get down to Barleycorn Concertinas over the course of the next few months as I understand Chris Algar has around 20 on offer. I'm not sure if any are Edeophones. Aeolas seem to be the most common available. I agree with your comments regarding the customs duty, plus, of course the shipping cost. I think I'd rather try before I buy; especially when looking at spending £3,500 to £4,000.
  4. I'm after one of these so if anyone's selling one please get in touch. Cheers.
  5. I'd be interested in the concertina vinnebones . What is the price? Thanks.
  6. Alan is a tutor at Glasgow Fiddle Workshop, and I attended his classes. for a while a few years back. He was always complimentary of my tea making skills. Alan actually got me into playing the English Concertina and I still enjoy playing it to this day. From the photographs it appears that you were having a lot of fun. The two concertinas together look amazing. It's a pity they are so difficult to get hold of at affordble prices. My wife and I are thinking of jumping on the ferry to Ireland again next year and we're thinking of Co. Clare. Any suggestions for sessions would be greatly appreciated.
  7. I couldn't even afford to meet the reserve at the moment.....but there's no harm in dreaming!
  8. Well I did go along and have a look today. Also had some time to try it out for a while. It's been tuned down to concert pitch at some time in the past, but some of the reeds are seriously out of tune. The bellows seem to be pretty air tight. Could do with the usual service as it does cough quite a lot on some of the buttons, but is not a bad player. The case has a label with the name 'A G Hutton'. Despite the estimate, a representative from the auction house advised that they expect it to fetch £2,000 - £3,000. They know that they are selling a nice tenor treble.
  9. Multiply the estimate by 5 and you're probably about there. The low estimate will no doubt draw in a good number of punters, most of whom are going to be disappointed (including myself).
  10. I'm thinking of going along to the auction viewing on Thursday or friday. Way out of my price league (champagne taste/ beer money), but I'd love to at least have a wee play.
