  1. Quality Anglo Concertina (C/G), 51 metal buttons, metal ends and modern hard case. I acquired this to have it serviced and get it back to top flight condition, but alas I have too many projects on the go and also need to thin my collection. No makers name badge showing that I can see. A concertina player I know opened it for me and said it has steel reeds, riveted action, 7 fold (airtight) bellows, 160mm across ends. Needs a service (valves/bush service and small repair to veneer etc). I asked him to take a photo of the insides while he had the ends off – see attached. This instrume
  2. OK, so I just became the proud parent (servant?) of a Hohner 20-button C/G concertina. I want to play pirate songs and Irish session tunes. Ordered Gary Coover's books on Amazon. Any other advice for the beginning player? I play stringed instruments mostly, with a bit of drum and other miscellaneous, but mostly I'm a singer. So I do have some musical experience, but the concertina mystifies me. Watched some YouTube videos where they basically said, "Yeah, these buttons seem to be arranged randomly, but I have no idea why." Any guidance appreciated.
  3. Jeffries C/G anglo concertina for sale in great playing condition. Beautiful soft tone with lots of volume, ornate metal ends, gold tooling, gorgeous instrument all around. Bellows are nice and tight with no significant leaks. Was last tuned up when I purchased the concertina from Noel Hill about 7 years ago, still very much in tune and sounding great. The YouTube link at the bottom is to a short video I made so you can have a look and a listen. Asking $16 500 CAD ($12 500 USD). Located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Serious inquires can be sent to agevenich@gmail.com. https://m.youtube.com/wat
  4. This concertina was purchased by Ken Shaw from Chris Timson, webmaster of concertina.info (?), in 2006. It had been renovated a couple of years prior by Chris Algar, who sold it to Chris Timson. Ken Shaw met Greg Jowaisas around 2012 at a festival in Texas and showed him the Lachenal. Greg told Ken it was the best model Lachenal made and agreed that he could make a better bellows. He replaced the bellows and straps with gorgeous dark green leather, did work on the pads, valves, and springs and tightened up the action and added bushings around the buttons. He also added the gold leaf decoration
  5. (expanded in May 2019 - re 30b see below) Whilst happily making my first steps with (harmonic) playing on the Anglo I came to notice the various options for the lowest reed on the G-row (primarily speaking of a C/G here, as I'm approaching the Bb/F instrument just like a transponing instrument), particularly on the pull. Whereas the Crabb has the D (C), forming the root note of the secondary dominant, the Lachenal has a C (minor seventh, or reversal of the tonic's root - and in the charts I'm finding online it's always an A, hence the fifth, or third of the subdominant).
  6. Hi everyone, I'm brand new to the concertina and have been perusing these forums for the past couple days looking for advice. Wanting to learn a new instrument, I bought an old Anglo 20 button Scholer off ebay to try (20 button to start out, and Scholer b/c from the reading I did, for price range going vintage vs new/made in China seemed the way to go.) I got it a couple of days ago, and it seems in pretty good shape, all the buttons have clear sounds, definitely something I could practice on. But, here is my issue. Since everything else on the market is C/G, I mistakenly didn't notice
  7. 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
  8. 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 pape
  9. 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
  10. Hi folks, Unfortunately I need to sell my concertina. It has been my main concertina for a good few years now and has served me well. This instrument is one of the earlier models and as such has a beautiful tone you won't find on the newer instruments. These are very hard instruments to find. A new Suttner with the same specs is €5000 with a four year waiting list but these are slightly different instruments compared to the earlier models. It's an airtight instrument with very fast action and has been well played and looked after over the years. This would be a perfect instrument for a
  11. I'm just starting up and looking for a good used concertina- Anglo in C/G. 30 Button I'm not looking to spend a fortune, as I'm not sure it will be "my thing." I am weary of all the cheaper ones on Ebay. I'd prefer to spend a little extra and not get a piece of junk. I find that forums like this tend to be a wealth of knowledge. Hoping someone out here has a decent used one in good working order. Looking to be less than $1K USD Feel free send me an email- MrRingmassa@hotmail.com

  14. HI there I'm offering a 31-button Suttner C/G A2 model, Jeffries tuned concertina for sale. It has polished ebony ends, seven bellows folds, and very pretty gilt bellows papers. Sice it has been played, it's nice and loose; but it hasn't been played very much and is in 'as new' condition. The 31st button is a C drone (it comes along with a low D reed and brass reed plate should anyone want that). I have a genuine reason for selling it. I and it are based in the west of Ireland, but it can be sent anywhere in the world at little cost. It happens to be the concertina featured on the fro
  15. Hi, I am selling my 30 button C/G Morse concertina. It is number #122, so it is a classic from the early days - but last winter, in anticipation of selling it, I had it completely refurbished by the Button Box (new bellows and bushings, valves checked, wax replaced and tuned). They did a beautiful job and it plays really well, though could still use some breaking in after the re-build. It is a modified Jeffries layout with three c# because I added a c# on the push (first finger on rt). FYI, I live in the Western U.S. for purposes of contacting me and mailing. Please email me at
  16. Suttner anglo A2 31 key with belows papers, C/G tuning, no. 210. I bought this instrument from Jurgen in 2003. Very nice, bright sound, in excellent condition with original box. $6000. Will donate to Concertina.net. Please contact: michaelprendergast@comcast.net
  17. Wheatstone Linota, #34842. Made in the 1930s. 31 buttons, C/G, in excellent tune. Needs no work at all. New wooden ends, new metal buttons, new button bushings, new pads, new hand rails, new straps, many new valves. Good, tight bellows. Overall in excellent condition. Looks new. It plays beautifully and has good volume. The reeds have not been filed to death. They are top quality and are in very good condition. The concertina comes in a good new hard case. Minimal charge for shipping. It has a classic clean, full Wheatstone sound. This is a very low price for a fine instrument. Asking €2,75
  18. Edgley has gone to a better home
  19. It occurs to me that rather than acquiring a C/G with more buttons I would have been better off picking up a G/D with the same amount! This is a wonderful instrument with real concertina reeds - steel in brass shoes. Eight fold bellows - metal ends. Hook and spring action that is responsive and quiet. If interested please PM me - I will not be listing this concertina anywhere else. I would keep this concertina, my Cover and my Stagi if I could justify the purchase of another concertina in G/D!
  20. Kensington 30 button anglo C/G modified Jeffries layout, Made 2003-4 Excellent condition. This concertina is from my early instruments which were not light. It has had the reed shoe ports brought current with the way I make them now, and has excellent response and sound from the lowest notes to the highest. This is a concertina reeded instrument, not a hybrid. Like all Kensingtons, it has a substantial dynamic range making it great for expressive airs and strong rhythms in Irish traditional playing. It is well able to hold it's own in a session, slow or fast. I am always amazed when I

  22. 30 button C/G Stagi Concertina for sale Faithful Stagi for sale, my starter instrument. Sale includes standard concertina case. Works well and in very good condition. Has some of the usual Stagi vices, eg: bellows not finished very nicely, not 100% air tight (but close to 95%), action on some buttons not perfect. I have moved on to a Norman, but this will do a good job of getting someone else going with the Anglo. Sale from Peterborough UK. £275 ONO seem reasonable?, roughly double this new.
