    Morse Albion Baritone

    Hi! Great condition Morse. The second one I've owned. These instruments are made with such great craftsmanship in Sunderland Mass. I bought it used last year, on a bit of a discount as there is one wear mark from the previous owner's nail? In any event I paid $1950, looking for 1700. Willing to negotiate. Comes with fitted black case. Pictures attached. Will email more if you like Feel free to contact me here, or at this email for more pics: envfolkcd@gmail.com
  4. Please see ebay listing http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Concertina-Connection-Jack-Baritone-English-Concertina-/281700883727?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item4196ae5d0f A surprisingly good Jack Baritone English Concertina, with a nice tone. All original apart from one thumb strap bolt, which has been replaced. This is great if you're thinking of trying a baritone but don't want to commit to the high prices you have to pay to buy a good Wheatstone (£2,000 plus). Bellows etc all in a good condition and all reeds sound. You are welcome to come and try if you live locally (Bearsden, Scotland). Will sell for £100 if not through ebay.

  6. I picked this up used at the Button Box in November 2012. I love playing it, and I'm starting to make real progress, but I'm having hand problems and have to put it aside for a few years. Comes with: Hard case Soft Case "Tutor for the Jackie and Jack English Concertina" book "Handbook for English Concertina" by Roger Watson The bellows are worn on the edges, but the sound is great and the seals are tight. Would love to see this go to a good home. Asking $300 $275 for the package, buyer pays shipping. Edit: Please either PM me here or contact me via email on this page.
  7. This is a letter I received from Wim Wakker about this insturment. Concertina Connection Inc. & Wakker Concertinas Hi Thorn, I checked your instrument and made a few adjustments to the action. Your instrument is a Geuns-Wakker model, not a Wakker concertina with traditional concertina reeds. We built a small number of English and anglo concertinas with Harry Geuns (Belgium). Harry is considered to be one of the world's leading bandoneon makers. Your instrument is a 48 key baritone hybrid (accordion reeds) English, built in 2001. It has French polished amboyna veneers and all leather bellows. It is in excellent condition . • Unlike most hybrid concertinas on the market, your instrument is built the traditional way: quarter sawn cured wood, glued with hide glue (acoustically invisible), French polished, Morocco goat skin bellows, and the action has a double guided posts and it has metal capped buttons. The standard hybrids on the market do not use tone woods, are glued with insulating wood glue and resonance restricting finishes, have plastic buttons, sheep skin bellows, etc.. Quality wise, your instrument is much better and comparable to the custom Rose, which also is traditionally built hybrid english. Regards, Wim Wakker Concertina Connection Inc. Wakker Concertinas 9811 South Big Rock Lane, P.O. Box 211, Valleyford, WA 99036 USA • T: 509-922-1626 I am asking $3500.00 plus shipping. It comes with the original hard shell case. you can contact me at skytimes@gmail.com Thom Switzer
  8. I'm selling a low-octave C/G anglo concertina. I bought it from Bob Tedrow in 2004, fresh off the presses at the time. It's a nice instrument, but in the last 10 years, I've shifted my style a bit and now I don't actually have occasion to play a low-octave instrument. It's been in the closet for years now, so it's time to find it a new home. Octagonal ends (6.75 inches) of a medium-dark reddish wood that may (?) be mahogany. 7-fold black bellows with cream-color papers. Black Delrin buttons. It's in very good condition. Not perfect condition, but good: pleasant-sounding and very playable as-is, but would be improved by a couple of hours in the shop. There is a hairline (non-structural) crack though pieces of the scrollwork on the ends (probably related to low humidity in the closet) All of the reeds sound clearly, but one of the inherent challenges in a low-octave instrument is getting a reliable fast response out of the largest reeds, and the lowest few reeds (far lefthand button in rows 1, 2, and 3) really struggle with that. None of the reeds are noticeably out of tune (i.e. more than a few cents), but a re-tuning would do it good. There's a slight squawk if you overblow the c# (i.e. ok under normal pressure, but swings sharp if I press too hard), which a trip to the repair shop would probably fix. Sell as-is for $2000. OR, I get it repaired at the Button Box and sell it to you for $2300. (plus shipping, or pick it up in the Boston area) Comes with a homemade case if you want it. more photos at https://plus.google.com/115677772890896502364/posts/RgokNQxWhs9 (if I managed that link right).
  9. I today received a baritone bought from David Robertson and thought that some might like to hear comments on this instrument. It is a Wheatstone, estimated by David at ~140 years old. Flat wooden ends (ebony?) with metal buttons and steel reeds. I paid about 3/4 the price I was expecting to pay for a very good baritone - David described himself as "not a greedy bloke" and that was accurate. No idea what he paid for it, but given that the good price he offered included new thumb straps, new pads, valves and bushes, and a bit of refinishing, he certainly isn't trying to become rich quickly. I feel very good about the value received; had I paid what I expected, I'd still feel good. To my surprise, the reeds, other than the very bottom, are pretty quick and the action is fast (and quiet). David commented as we discussed the instrument by email "I think I have only ever had one baritone that performed better than this one, and that was a 1950's Crabb," I thought that was hyperbolic but it isn't. I can definitely play a note-full Irish reel up to tempo on it. More useful, I tried a 16th c. theme and variations on it, with some of the variations being quite fast and found that it was not only playable but also sounded 'right' on the instrument. Getting used to it will take a bit as it is my first baritone and I suspect that as I learn the pressure and velocity to use across different parts of the range the sound will only improve. It has already marked improved after 2 hours of playing with it. David finished it up very nicely and tuned it nicely as well; the reeds sound very consonant in chords. I don't find the reeds too "tubby" and the sound in most of the range the reeds have the same sound and characters. It is a somewhat muted sound - not a very sharp and bright sound - and that is just fine for me. David's comment: "The tone is typical of the period - nowhere near as harsh as, for example, a Model 21 Wheatstone treble". But nowhere as dull as, say, a cheap Bastari. As for size and weight, it is 71/4" flat to flat, and weighs in at 3lb 10 oz. It was well packed and there's only one reed that in my view needs a bit of adjustment; I expected more of them to protest the travel. In sum, I am happy and I would cheerfully do business again with David. Dave
  10. I just started learning to take video of myself playing the concertina, and I was wondering if anyone has any tips? Video Cameras Is a webcam sufficient, or do I need something high end? Microphones Is my computer's built-in microphone sufficient? I rock out on a baritone English concertina, and it can sound distorted when I record too close to the mic. How do I fix this? Some notes come out of the right side and others from the left. How do I record both sides at the same time? Special Effects How much work is it to set up special effects, and is it worth it? Are blue screens that expensive? Trained Animals I've noticed very few trained animals in Youtube concertina videos. Is there a technical reason for this, some nuance in animal behavior I'm not aware of, or did the trend of animals in music videos simply fail to coincide with the folk revival? What are some things you've noticed about exceptional Youtube videos, whether awesome or awful?
