  1. Price is £2,000 plus shipping (about £100). Lachenal, new six-fold bellows, new pads/springs. Metal ends on ebonized wood frame. Good action. 30 button C/G plus bird-song and cock crow novelty buttons. Recently tuned to A=440. Made around 1930. Excellent visual condition and plays well. It is in Hong Kong at present. Steel reeds. The serial number is 114088. Here is a sound sample: https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing The original case is no longer suitable because of the change to six-fold bellows from five. The Lachenal paper label is not an original: I think the paper a copy. E instrument is genuine.
  2. I am selling my 4-CD set, “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments,” for only $4.99 USD. See http://greylarsen.co...-84SII1MytPIfg1 . This price is good through January 5th, 2018. This audio collection is a companion to my book “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments.” (See http://greylarsen.co...products_id=107). All 300 tunes are notated in the book. Free excerpts are available as PDF downloads (at http://greylarsen.com/webstore/books/). Many of the transcriptions pay homage to recordings by great musicians and groups such as Matt Molloy, Martin Hayes, Sharon Shannon, Mary Bergin, Kevin Burke, James Kelly, Willie Clancy, Altan, the Bothy Band and the Mulcahy Family, as well as early 20th century recordings from revered masters Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran, Dennis Murphy, Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny and others. The tunes are notated in a style that makes them equally accessible to players of fiddle, flute, whistle, accordion, concertina, harp, keyboard, guitar, mandolin, banjo, uilleann pipes – to all melody players. I play the tunes on Irish flute, tin whistle, and 49 of the tunes on my Wheatstone 12-sided anglo concertina from the 1930s. This is an excellent resource for repertoire building and makes a nice gift. Also, I designed the tune sequence such that good medleys result when you play consecutive tunes one after another. (At least I think so.) To buy only the 49 concertina tunes, go here: http://greylarsen.co...products_id=108. xsdz For $9.99, you can get the same collection as 300 downloadable mp3s, and save shipping costs. This costs less than getting the CDs if you are in Canada, Mexico or outside of North America. The mp3s can be found here: http://greylarsen.co...products_id=111 . The CD set is so inexpensive because I have piles of them on my shelves! Time to move them out into the world. I make no profit at this price, but I have the pleasure of spreading the music around. Most of my CDs are also on sale for $9.00 USD: http://greylarsen.com/store/catalog/index.php?cPath=22_40. And all my books are $7 off - http://greylarsen.com/store/catalog/index.php?cPath=25_44_78. Thank you for your attention, and happy holidays! - Grey
  3. I'm new to this forum and to the concertina community and need some advice. A bit of background: I am a choral conductor and pianist. I'm the music director at a church in Dallas, Texas. I read music fluently and play by ear a bit but not am not gifted this way. In recent years I've discovered I enjoy a good stout in an Irish pub so have become curious about ITM (Irish Traditional Music) and that lead to doing some research on the concertina. I understand in broad terms the different key arrangements and the terms unisonoric/bisonoric of the English, Anglo and Duet systems. Here is my question: as a pianist and music reader will I make faster progress with which system? What do you think will be more intuitive and therefore I will be able to manage the learning curve in order to make music? I'm eager to hear your responses. McDouglas in Dallas
  4. Trying to find a secondhand mid to high end instrument in the US with a Jeffries layout C/G, would consider 38 keys too. A Suttner would be first my first choice but I know they're rarely seen used. PM if you might have something - I've checked all the usual online shops. Thanks
  5. All, Thought some of you might enjoy learning a few Christmas songs (from Christmas Concertina) so you can get ready for the big holiday season. So, here's an easy version of Silent Night, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, and perhaps my favorite arrangement in the whole book - In the Bleak Midwinter. The music includes the melody in regular musical notation along with button numbers for Anglo Concertina (Wheatstone/Lachenal accidentals). Also posted is an explanation of the tablature and numbering system. And, you can hear videos of these arrangements at: https://www.youtube.com/user/angloconc(Christmas Concertina playlist). Enjoy!

  6. Hello good ole Concertina.net forum. I haven't been here in years! I've been playing all along, down here in the quiet confines of the Delmarva Peninsula. A few years ago my dear musician husband passed away and I have recently purchased my own house insurance to which I need to add my instruments on extra extension of coverage. I have a Suttner A2 Anglo #116 and I need to value a replacement. With a quick search on the internet I did not find anyone in the USA selling these off the shelf. Jürgen is still making these, but the wait is now 2-1/2 years. To me, the price is not just the price when you need immediate replacement and there is that long wait. How do I present this to the insurance agent at a price to be realistic in the face of potential catastrophe? It would be great to hear from you again. ~ Jan Dover, Delaware
  7. I have a G/D Edgely Professional 30 button Anglo concertina in excellent condition, Pau Ferro wood, wooden ends, recently overhauled by the maker, for sale or trade. $2000 plus shipping, or might consider a trade for a comparable C/G Anglo or a Morse Albion English concertina in like condition. Pics to follow. Thanks
  8. Here's a video of John Watcham playing for Harry Taylor's Men at the recent Sidmouth Festival - a double jig in the Longborough style based on the Playford tune "Mundesse". https://youtu.be/eFW6s7c--PE More info on Taylor's Men here: http://taylorsmen.org/
  9. looking for a Wheatstone layout anglo in G/D (or possibly even F/C) with left hand drone. Probably not after a Lachenal unless it's exceptional. what's out there?
  10. Hi I've already used this forum quite succesfully once, so now I need help again, let's see if it will be the same this time. I'm looking for one of these Lachenal anglos with inserted into ebony metal ends. I have the small size 26 buttons one, and I like it so much i decided to get myself 30+ buttons. You can see what I'm talking about on these pictures I don't want to buy full size (6 1/4''), something around 5 3/4 - 5 7/8 will be perfect. To give you an idea of what I'd like to buy - here's the one I've just missed http://www.irishmusik.com/lachenal-anglo-concertina So if you have one of those you're thinking of selling or if you know somebody who has one, please let me know. In fact, i'd be glad to hear from you even if you just have one and not going to sell it, just to share the info
  11. With considerable regret, need to sell these two instruments. Duet is full-sized; anglo is 3-7/8" across flats. Little played, and stored carefully for some time - playable now but need exercise. Prefer to sell in person if at all possible, or via reliable intermediary. Location: Boston, MA USA. Please message privately for any required information. Advice on current pricing will be much appreciated. If sold to or through anyone ehere, will donate appropriately to site management. Thanks in advance for your interest. May the music continue forever!

  14. Long time lurker here, hope to post more in the future. I've been playing a C/G hybrid for about a year now and have come to the tentative conclusion that for my primary use case (Morris), I'd be better off with a G/D since I want to be able to play harmonies and chords with other morris musicians. I've gotten to a point where it's easy enough to play our repertoire tunes in C or F harmonically, but if I stay in G my options are much more limited and I tend to end up playing melody only, which isn't terribly interesting for me. Opinions on this conclusion are welcome, of course, but onto the main question: Sometimes I'll see a used G/D for sale, but half the time it's got a Jeffries layout. I'm much more comfortable with Wheatstone, but I don't want to always be passing up a good deal if it would be easy/affordable to have it converted. So... would it be? I'm mainly talking about hybrids here since they're affordable and readily available; I understand the reed pans are a different beast from those in "nice" concertinas. But since I also want to invest in a nice one at some point, the question applies there, too. Much obliged for any advice from all you sages on the forum. Luke
  15. Hello. I've just purchased a East German Anglo concertina here in Brazil (concertinas are not usual in this country) and was lucky since It was inexpensive - less than US$100 - and in great condition. I research for it's brand "BM" and couldn't find anything, but in my search I've found similar ones made in Klingenthal as Scholer, Galotta and Rosetti Rambler. Does anybody know anything about BM and why there is no mention to that brand in internet? My instrument is a 20 button D/G and has two reeds per note, but the second button on G row at bass side which should be D/E (according to the standard 20 button D/G layout), in mine sounds D/F#. Other 19 notes sound as expected, althought a little out of tune. Is this right? Are the D/G Scholers, Galottas and RRs tuned like that? Thanks.
  16. Hi All I've got a customer who purchased a 30 key Lachenal Anglo concertina but it came without its baffles. I know a lot of people (myself included) play without baffles or remove the baffles, but this gentleman would like the concertina 100% original (or as close as can be if you see what i mean) Bearing in mind the original baffles have probably long disappeared, where can i get, and what is the correct material to make a realistic/authentic set of baffles from, or does any of the kind members out there have a set of baffles they would sell to me to help out? Any thoughts or help with this greatly appreciated and if it helps, apparently the baffles that were in this concertina were white. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide
  17. Forgive me if this was already asked, but I haven't found this information on the forum. What are the standard sizes of different brand's anglos? From my (limited) knowledge Lachenals are usually 6 1/4'' AF, while Jeffries are a bit smaller (6'' if I'm not mistaken), is it correct? And what about others?
  18. Hey guys, Many thanks in advance for the help as I am a complete layman when it comes to concertinas. I was just wondering whether anyone could tell me anything about this concertina I have attached pictures of. Helpfully it isn't marked anywhere with a maker but to my eye it is nice quality. The only thing I think I know about it is that its an Anglo-German set up and made from rosewood veneer. If anyone knows anything about this instrument then I'd love to hear it, Google has failed me! Anthony
  19. The instrument pictured here is: Antique Concertina with makers mark on one end: C.Jeffries Maker 38 notes/basses Patterned fillagree metal on both ends with the hand rest and leather. All in good condition. No damage to the internal reeds. In really good condition for its age ... i do not know how to play it personally, but the notes work and it sounds really lovely (I would so love to hear someone play this little beauty properly)... it only shows some wear to the outer edges of the external leather on two corners, probably due to sitting. I am not exactly sure... but I think the key may be C/F (i play many musical instruments, including a piano accordion, but never did learn the concertina) Approx size: 150mm or 6 inches tall when closed completely. Leather case still in good condition Unfortunately the leather hinge attaching the lid to the bottom part of the case has come away ... in fact - it happened since I took the photos (which shows it still joined) ... The lid is still sitting perfectly on top of the case and I do not imagine it would be hard to fix... more photos can be supplied... Lining showing some wear. Approx size 190mm or 7 1/2 inches tall and approx 200mm or 8 inches in diameter or width. Our family owned a music shop in the 1950's in Perth, and this instrument was one of many lovely old instruments that came to us through trade ins etc. We used to keep them on display in the shop and then when my parents retired, the instruments were stored. We have researched this instrument and understand that it is the best and most sought after.. our asking price is £5,000 GBP ( which works out to approx. $8,100 AUD or $6,255 USD) Our location is Perth, Western Australia, and any Postage/Shipping/Insurance costs will have to be calculated and added to the purchase price for the purchaser to pay. Anyone interested can either respond here or you are welcome to email me on artist@anthea-m.com if you prefer. Also - I had so many pictures, and the allowance here was nowhere near big enough... I have done a collage - again, anyone interested only has to ask and I will send the full size pics to their email, no problems at all :-)

  22. I apologize if this topic has been covered elsewhere. I didn't find much in a cursory glance through the topic titles. I have a C/G anglo on which I primarily play melody (mostly irish session music), but recently have been trying to arrange accompaniments for songs. I realize that the layout of the instrument and the required bellow direction changes are somewhat limiting. For now I have mainly stuck to holding sustained chords, which gives a nice 'drone' effect that fits some select songs. (Actually in most cases I find I prefer the sound of just playing the root note and the fifth, and occasionally tapping the third for this.) I was curious if anyone had suggestions for (or examples of) more interesting things to try to give concertina accompaniment more 'texture' (perhaps akin to strumming or picking patterns on a guitar). I have tried playing arpeggios, but in most cases find the sound rather jarring and hard to sing over. any thoughts? Would looking into resources targeted at english concertinas be of use, or is the technique too different?
  23. CONCERTINA Hello, I sell complete set of reeds. 42 reeds, i bought 2 low reeds more in the same size in case I wanted to change the tuning layout of the second row - the lowest button from G/d to B/A I wanted to build my own anglo CG concertina, however I don’t have enough time to do so. So i decided to sell this complete set of reeds. The reeds are pre tuned manually in the factory. They are fine quality reeds from czech manufacturer, see the site. In case of interest contact me and I would send you complete sheet with size and pitch of every single reed. Price is 160 euros. Thank you Adam http://www.harmonikas.cz/en/dix-concertina-1#obsah
  24. Want to sell this concertina bought 20 years ago. Not used very much, but a scratch in the leather where the bellow is attached (see photo). Perfect condition. Hardcase included. I am living in Denmark. Price 200 euro + shipping.
