  1. Hi Glendara, welcome to the forums - and I hope you're inclined to (instead of selling) take pleasure in keeping this lovely piece of family heirloom by learning how to play it - it will well be worth it, enjoy! Best wishes - 🐺
  2. Concertinas are way better suited for using bellows control than PAs IMO - you can do that with a rather smallish PA (with really good reeds), but easily with any quality concertina.
  3. My post was not accurate as the concertina I own (and frequently play) is a model 6, raised as your "early" example, but much later, i.e. from 1921 (and quite "special" as well). And ok, the model 8 on the bb page is described as having raised ends, but I couldn't tell from the pic. All the best - 🐺
  4. Thank you Steve, your post is paving my way to pointing out that the "model 8" as advertised by The Button Box does actually not appear to be one - at least not a typical example, as it would have raised ends then (just like the one I own myself). All the best - 🐺
  5. Hi crazy guy, sorry to interfere... 🙂 but having noticed so many of your efforts to lose (more) money, the video seems to suggest that this one might be a keeper for you... All the best - 🐺 BTW - as I'm going through rough times in my personal life these days, your "beginner" sounds have not failed to cheer me up - thank you for that!
  6. not much difference IMO, and my model 6 even has brass reeds - it‘s incredibly light, and well-made - it would have to be a particularly good specimen I guess - but you‘d always have to try an instrument before making your decision (not that I always acted accordingly though 😎).
  7. How about a good model 6? (mine is not for sale 🙂)
  8. if considering a New Model, you shouldn't roule out a Wheatstone Model 21 ff. (22/24 in particular) either IMO
  9. one octave above usual - but you may be aware of that already
  10. it should be noted that „hybrid“ is supposed to indicate being halfway between cheap’n’nasty and vintage, hence a quality instrument in any case
  11. are you sure it has the original bellows?
  12. but it's not a tenor then - model 21 is a treble
  13. quite a good price, you should grab the chance (if there are no further downsides)!
  14. Hi John, here's the layout as accurately provided by Geoffrey Crabb. Best wishes - 🐺 61b Crabb Crane - Type B.pdf
