I bought a 60 stud (plus bowing valve) Triumph Edeophone serial number 4362 from the Salvation Army shop in Melbourne, Australia in about 1965 but rarely played it as I have always preferred my English system instruments. The label on the right hand side is engraved "THE TRIUMPH Lachenal & co London WC". So now that I have decided to let it sing I am interested in discovering its history and age. That serial number is a bit of a mystery, did the Salvos have unique numbering for some of their instruments? I removed the left hand end yesterday for the first time and fixed the reed valves. It is still in the old tuning. In fact it seems as if it has never been serviced since new and is in remarkably good condition. There are no markings on the inside to indicate any service work or dates.
Hello! I inherited an old family concertina about a year ago and would like to get some vague indication of the value for insurance purposes. It's a Crane / Triumph 48 button, apparently at least 101 years old (reference to it in a newspaper article from 1916). It was stored boxed in dry conditions for probably the past 60 years; about 5 of the reeds needed to be checked / tuned but it now plays pretty well with itself. The specialist who fixed the reeds said it's in as good condition on the inside as outside (pictures of outside attached). The entire thing is tuned to A = 452 Hz. I have a couple of youtube videos playing it for an idea of the sound (apologies for my playing) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYJChpblEGE If anyone can help out with a value approximation, it would be much appreciated!
