  1. Wheatstone 56-key treble English system Aeola, with nickel-plated metal ends and ebony trim, #23111 and made about 1902. One of the earliest octagonal Aeolas, with the bell-shaped fretwork and red pads that are typical of the early metal-ended Wheatstones. Newly tuned to A-440. With its original black leather case.
  2. Hi All, My latest Tassey Tiger, with metal ends. I call it a 51/2 inch, but the way I have inserted the metal blew it out to nearly 5 3/4 inch. I eventually got the gold leaf (well in this case, silver leaf) skill under the belt. At some stage I will get a Youtube clip up of someone playing it. The metal ends certainly add a lot to the volume and spread of tones, compared to the wooden instruments, but they required a change in construction; so the instrument's weight, with the higher box, longer screws and buttons and the extra weight of the met
  3. I am selling a Colin Dipper, Co Clare model, 31 button Anglo C/G concertina. It has metal ends and plays with a very bright, forceful sound. It measures 5 5/8” across the flats. The slightly smaller size makes it feel great to hold and to play. It is very responsive and is not a concertina for the timid. It is about 12 years old. I bought it from Wally Carroll a year ago. I love the instrument but I have other pressing needs. It is a Jeffries layout with the very worthwhile F# press on the right accidental row (in place of one of the C# buttons). This makes an otherwise difficult E-F#-G tr
  4. Rare H Boyd Concertina with case for sale. Purchased in 1999 from Chris Algar of Barleycorn Concertinas. Have handwritten invoices and notes from Chris to Gene. Concertina has metal ends with H Boyd in the metal work on the end. Label says Lechenal & Co, Patent Concertina, Manufacturers, London. 48 metal buttons, metal ends, 5 folds.

  5. Hi. I have inherited a black, 6 fold, metal ended C/G Anglo with bone or ivory buttons. No makers name but one handle has "Steel Reed" on it, and on the side what looks like the Lachenal trade mark. It says ENGLISH MAKE and TRADE MARK as well. Inside is a paper label with 170252. I inherited it from my grandfather, who was born in 1890 in Kent (UK), He died in 1971 but I have only recently gained it. I remember him playing it when I was young, and he talked about walking up and down Gravesend prom playing it as a teenager. If its a Lachenal the "formula" makes it 1890 -same age as hi
