  1. A wondrous instrument here......images below but a few videos first. https://soundcloud.com/the-harry-robinson/liberty-bell-march-on-crabb https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S95GjBQkS7w https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVM-DfmfIYM A 41 key double reeded English concertina. I don't as rule name my instruments but I've called this one "Big Red"....I've used it in sessions and it catches every-ones eye . I've found it a great session concertina, not because it is particularly loud but because it's tone is different from any other instrument and so is discernible. You don't need to play it loudly, just listen carefully. Nothing competes with 4 diatonic accordions etc, but in a balanced session you can hear this one. I've never had a problem with 41 keys for the English based repertoire I play. Lowest note G....highest note F Made in the 60's I believe; a set of three were made. One red, one white, one blue. In top condition.....bellows, frames reeds, pads great. I've just changed out all the valves. The valve frames are Dural ( I believe) so it is not a heavy instrument, I've played it standing up fine. Solid case. I paid £3000 but pre-negotiating here, I'll take £2750 plus shipping, insurance etc or US $ equivalent. If interested, I need payment when sale is agreed but I will probably be over in the UK in November and could deliver to a central point. Also to the Button Box area in May. Thanks for looking.....if seriously interested, more images available.
