  6. For sale: Wheatstone 62-button Maccann duet concertina -- Serial # 35731 -- for sale at $2,850 or best offer, however, buyer must pay all shipping costs. http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD03/PAGES/D3P0560L.HTM Here is a general comment about this instrument by a professional concertina specialist: "(Regarding) the three buttons off to the left that are marked "BA", WH", and "WV". The WV button is standard - it's what most players call an air release, but Wheatstone referred to it as a "Wind Valve". The other two are novelty buttons which are uncommon on

  10. Good morning all from Dallas, Texas, I am a church musician and beginner English concertina player. Purchased a preowned Jackie last Christmas and have played it almost daily since then. I have been reading and researching on this site and learning from this community with much appreciation. I must confess that I'm beginning to think about purchasing that "next level" of English concertina. I've begun to focus on searching for a 48key treble Wheatstone or Lachenal english concertina in the range of $1,000-2000. (According to one site, that's 774-1548 GBP).
  11. Hello concertina lovers, I am selling my Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet Concertina. I have a listing on ebay, check it out if you are interested. https://www.ebay.com/itm/302791718981?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 It is an amazing 12 keys Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet Concertina, serial number: 32154. From the serial number, we can estimate that it was made around 1929. It is in an incredible condition. All actions, pads, metal buttons, steel reeds and 8-fold bellows are impeccable. The metal
  12. My husband and I are interested in selling his grandfather's MacCann Duet. This C. Wheatstone ebony Aeola has 56 buttons, and ivory thumb rests. Metal rivet tags are also still in great condition. The piece was manufactured in London and was first sold December 22nd, 1922 according to the ledger on this link http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD01/PAGES/D1P1820S.HTM. The instrument also comes with it's original hard leather case. This instrument is playable out of the box but could use some TLC as some of the reeds seem to stick. Reasonable offers will be considered, but we are hoping around $25
  13. I have a wheatestone C/G anglo with the standard 30-button layout on which I play primarily irish music. I have seen some discussion on modified/hybrid layouts for ITM, but they have all been focused on the mid-range, usually focusing the C#. I am getting fairly comfortable with the wheatstone system in this sense, but there is one thing that has continued to bug me. I would really like to have the D below middle C to throw in chords. As it is I can throw in a nice low G, A or E and even the odd C, but the one I would get the most use out of for irish music woudl be that D. Does anyone
  14. Wheatstone 1867 48-Key Treble English concertina #18261 Bought from The Buttonbox in 2017 with refurbished 5-fold bellows, new valves, tuned A=440, and new fitted hardshell case.
  15. Looking to sell this concertina. Several of the keys are sticky and it's missing the straps.
  16. Hello everyone, I have been asked by a friend of dear (and much missed) Vernon Barrett, to post this, as he has no internet access. I am not taking any commission or any money for posting this, but I hope that this beautiful instrument can find a new home and continue to make music. Vernon Barrett bought this very nice Wheatstone & Co McCann Duet in reasonable condition but in old philharmonic pitch and needing replacement bellows. As he wanted a wooden ended instrument, we made new ends finished in beautiful Amboyna wood with hand cut fretwork and with new boxwood button stems

  18. 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.

  19. I have an excellent example of a mid-20th century Wheatstone (serial no. 52241) for sale, with rosewood ends and metal buttons. It is tuned to C/G, action, tuning, and general condition all very good. It has a mellow tone which has proven good for both Irish tunes and song accompaniment in my use of it, and I am only selling due to recent purchase of a Jeffries. I will post up photos when I get a chance, otherwise if anybody is interested to meet and try it out, I will be in Edinburgh for the next couple of days and then in Cork. Asking 2,250 euros, or £2,000.
  20. Unique Wheatstone Aeola 48 button Pre-WWI English Concertina in the Key of C Treble range (from G below middle C, to C three octaves above middle C). Falling within the "dear years" and "lost years" period of the Wheatstone company, this Ebony ended concertina has unique fretwork detail, and has a full rich tone. The instrument shows only very minor cosmetic blemishes and is in superior playing condition. The bellows are in excellent shape and all buttons are responsive. Concertina was completely looked over and serviced by the Button Box in 2013. Instrument was part of the collection at B
  21. 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!
  22. On Sunday 28th May 2017 my 64-key Wheatstone Aeola, serial number 29688, was stolen in Oslo, Norway as I was packing the van with instruments and equipment after a gig. I don’t think the thief had any idea what he was stealing and it’s difficult to know what he’s going to do with it. But it’s possible that in time it will find its way into the concertina market. It’s a wonderful instrument, recently renovated by the wonderful Dippers. John Dippers’ mark and signature is on the inside of the new black bellows. It's in a wooden case that was specially made for me by equally wonderful Emmanue
  23. After several years' absence, I find myself once again in the concertina world. I've come into possession of a 90 year old Wheatstone model 6 with raised ebony ends. The ends, apart from some light fingernail gouging, are close to pristine. I'd like to keep them that way. For the first 70 plus years of its life the concertina resided in the UK, and then more lately in western Oregon, USA, where it experienced a similar climate. Now I have it in Alaska, which is obviously a harsher world than it has known. (There's a tremendous swing in humidity from summer to winter and back.) I k
  24. Concertina Lovers, This one is for collectors, it is extremely rare. 12 keys Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet Concertina, serial number: 32154. it was made around 1929. It is in an incredible condition. All actions, pads, metal buttons, steel reeds and 8-fold bellows are impeccable. The metal ends are beautifully sculpted. It is "concert pitch" tuned and it sounds great. It is surprisingly powerful for the size (4.5 inches / 3 inches). I bought it from Chris Algar at Barleycorn Concertinas in 2006. Played very occasionally. It plays just like when I got it. It will come in the or
