  1. I’m very excited to announce a brand-new 155-page book by Adrian Brown that features 44 tunes from the 16th to 18th centuries, all arranged in full harmonic style with standard musical notation for the melody, chord symbols, informative and historical notes on the tunes, plus easy tablature for 30-button Anglo concertinas with Jeffries AND Wheatstone/Lachenal accidentals. Yes, with this book you get two-for-one. Adrian plays a 38-button Jeffries, but since the Wheatstone/Lachenal system is much more common we decided that with a little minor tweaking here and there we could accommo
  2. Hi All, I am selling a Jefrries concertina. This instrument is in the key of Bb/F. It requires tuning. I have put a new set of hand straps on. I am asking €6,000 euro If anybody has any questions or needs any information feel free to ask. Based outside Dublin. Patrick
  3. I have a beautiful Jeffries Anglo for sale in excellent condition - flight case included. It has just come out of Theo Gibb's workshop where it has had a full overhaul. Email me if you are interested.
  4. 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
  5. Please note: this is now sold and on its way to a new life in Germany. A donation will be made to this forum. A Jeffries 30 button anglo in G/D. I only realised when I opened it up to take photos that I've had this for 22 years. When I received it the bellows were torn so it was unplayable. It was fully restored by C & R Dipper. Besides the usual things the ends were re-plated and new 7-fold bellows fitted. I played it seriously for a year or two, but then gradually reverted to the Crane duet so it's rarely touched nowadays. The Dipper hand straps show signs of use, but otherwi
  6. Fully and lovingly restored Jeffries 26 key Rosewood ended anglo. Tuned down from high pitch to concert 440 Hz. New valves, pads. The cracks in the rosewood ends, inevitable with instruments of this age, have been fully repaired and the ends repolished. It is 100% stable and tested for a year already. The bellows are made by Jürgen Suttner, they are extremely supple! All parts supplied by Suttner or Wheatstone. Receipts available. It comes in a very luxurious self made case of high quality cowhide with pigskin interior. This instrument has a rich and mellow sound, per
  7. Reposting this as I am still looking to sell a Jeffries concertina as above. In C/G with 26 keys, making it a lighter instrument. It's also very loud making this an excellent choice for a morris musician. The accidentals are C#/ Eb A/G Ab/Bb on the Left hand and Eb/C# Ab/G C#/Bb on the Right. Assessed by a knowledgeable friend as in good working order. Looking for around £3600 Please see pictures as attached and feel free to ask any more questions, many thanks Jo, Sheffield UK

  9. Sarah Flynn has had her concertina stolen at Piazza SMN, Florence, Italy. It is a distinctive instrument, a Jeffries Anglo Concertina with 56 keys and 4 rows. Please keep an eye out. Thanks!

  12. UPDATE: Saturday, 24th September The 58b and 62b Jeffries are now spoken for. Still hoping for a new home for Lachenal Chidley Duet - listed separately My thanks to all who have inquired. Much appreciation for all of your encouraging messages. Be Well, Dan
  13. I'm posting on behalf of a friend who has two concertinas for sale: C Jeffries Anglo in Bb/F concert pitch, 39 buttons, metal ends and buttons. It's a very nice instrument that plays well. Would buy it myself, if I could afford it! See pictures.. Looking for £4000. Lachenal Treble English Concertina, 48 buttons, wooden ends, metal buttons. Not sure about the reeds, but steel, I think. Can't really comment on how it plays, as I'm not an English concertina player, but seems in good playing order. £800. Any questions (such as the "extra" buttons on the Jeffries, just ask. Hopefully the pic
  14. After years of working away at a backlog of C/G's, 70 concertinas later, I finally had a chance to do the redesign work to make both Wheatstone layouts and low pitch reed pans. I just finished my first and personal A/E which instantly became my favorite concertina in the world. Anyone interested can order anything from G/D to D/A in either my standard Kensington layout which is great for ITM or the Wheatstone layout for those who are used to it or like it's uniform pattern in the accidental row. Straight Jeffries is also a change I have made for a few people, though it is nearly indistingui

  17. A work-in-progress recording of Willie of the Winsbury / Willie o' Winsbury, depending on what you want to call it. Again, if you don't like insistent drones, this might not appeal https://soundcloud.com/lachenaliamusic/willie-of-the-winsbury My version is compiled from those of Anne Briggs, Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer, and Sharron Kraus, Meg Baird and Helena Espvall. The arrangement is probably closest to that of Sharron Kraus & co. - although I've kept closer to the outline of Anne Briggs's tune. Lyrically it's mostly Briggs with various alterations caused by lapses of me
  18. I'm now the proud owner of a fabulous 38b Jeffries, and just wanted to say that my experience buying it through Greg Jowaisas was outstanding. It was a significant purchase and Greg spent a lot of time answering my questions, following up phone calls, checking and tuning the instrument, and just generally being patient with someone new to the Jeffries and high-level concertina world. I recommend Greg highly. And here are some photos of the instrument. Has a nice sweet, but loud tone. As my mother would have said, "Great honk!" I feel like I'm at the beginning of a long journey to s
  19. Hi, I am starting to search for a high quality g-d anglo. Looking for: 30 buttons or more, plays very well, true concertina reeds. I normally play c-g, am interested in expanding into a lower register. Thank you! Janet Have found a lovely instrument - calling off the search. Thanks! J.
  20. Though someone might want to see this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-METAL-ENDED-46-BUTTON-JEFFRIES-CONCERTINA-PREAD-STREET-LONDON-/171454707598?pt=UK_MusicalInstr_Keyboard_RL&hash=item27eb7f378e
  21. Following Will's post about this on another thread, I thought this issue might deserve it's own. With yet another 45 Jeffries on Ebay this weekend (which might or might not be an anglo) and having reassured my wife that I won't be tempted to increase my button allowance, I thought it would be good to discuss what you get for your extra 6 or so buttons. Will mentioned 4 issues in his post for preferring the 38 layout and I'd say mine are pretty much the same, but in a different order. On sound, I've yet to be convinced by the 6 or so Jeffries anglos I've played with 45 (+) buttons. They have a
  22. Hi folks, I'm selling my 44-key metal ended Jeffries C/G anglo concertina. It's in great condition and is a beautiful instrument. Here's a link to a video of me playing it last summer: http://pipers.ie/source/media/?mediaId=25281&galleryId=968 The concertina is currently in Sligo, Ireland. Contact me by private message for further information. Mairead
  23. I was wondering how many of us play both Jeffries and Wheatstone systems and how easily others can switch between the two? I have spent many years playing a Wheatstone layout and just recently acquired a G/D with a modified Jeffries layout. I am seriously tempted to have the right hand modified to a Wheatstone layout and have the other left hand modification undone so it is the same as my C/G. What are other folks opinions regarding the playing of modified and personalized layouts and the switching between Jeffries and Wheatstone?
  24. C Jeffries CG Anglo with 45 keys. The cartouche reads: C Jeffries, 12 Aldershot Rd, Kilburn NW6. Stamped on the left hand side is the text: A.G. Littleboy, April 25, 1925. The instrument has raised metal ends and seven fold bellows, which had been newly replaced when I purchased the instrument seven years ago. As expected from a Jeffries, the instrument has a clear, strong voice. The 45 keys give great flexibility in chord choices and excellent opportunities for legato playing. I understand that a number of similar keyed Jeffries from this period were originally made as Jeffries Duets and l
  25. Gardiner Houlgate, the well-known west country auctioneers are holding another sale of musical instruments on June 13th. Among the for sale items, are some concertinas, including a unique double-reeded 32 key Dipper anglo and a 46 key Jeffries anglo.
