  1. My lovely - in fantastic condition - 45 button Morse Geordie Tenor English Concertina is up for sale. It's a bit like a treble, but has an extra row so it goes to a 5th lower (i.e. the lowest note is a C rather than a G). It is in excellent condition, has fast action and plays beautifully (I don't though). I have a smaller Morse EC, which I am keeping, but I need to sell this one. I am a lifelong string player (mandolin etc) and 1 concertina is enough for me to enjoy. Rosewood stained Cherry ends, black Delrin buttons, brass fittings, riveted action, 6-fold bellows, and high-quality accordion-type reeds. With original hardshell case. Here's a link to the instrument on the Musicroom website... http://www.themusicroom-online.co.uk/product_info.php/products_id/5115 All offers will be considered - you may grab a bargain ) If anyone is interested, then please email me howard@thehilltribe.com. I live near Oxford, England. Once sold, then a donation to this website will be made. Thanks Howard (edited to include Musicroom link)
  2. I've been searching for an hour comparing the Aeola English system Tenor and Tenor-Treble (model 17 and model 19) Which is right for me? I have the note range figured out but can't find anything specific on the size and weight comparison. Can soneone give me the size (across the flats) of both a 48K treble and a 56K tenor-treble Aeola please? Maybe a Model 22 too as well please. Actually... If this hasn't been done before, let's compile a chart comparing the different models. If it has been done please point me in the right direction or PM me for my email to send it to me please. I am mostly interested in Wheatstone but why not open it up. Please let's stick to English system though. Every few days I can put the info into a summary post. What do you say? Not the primary concern when choosing an instrument of course but it does come into it. I think this could be some very useful data compiled into one place. Please help Type (ex: tenor, tenor-treble, tenor etc,) Model # (ex: Model 17 for 48K treble Aeola etc.) Serial # (optional but especially useful if no model #) Number of keys Note range Features (ex: wrist straps, thumb strap to note position, etc.) Type of ends (ex: ebony, raised ebony, metal, etc.) Number of bellow folds Size (distance across the flats) Weight Thanks.
  3. Are any of the relatively less costly vintage instruments available in a 56 key tenor-treble? I am getting mixed reports on what tenor-treble models I should be searching for on a limited budget. Did Wheatstone or Lachenal make a simple rosewood ended, bone buttoned, steel reed in a TT compass for example? Please give me some suggestions so I can focus on some specific models. This could cause some debate (valid discussion but not here please) but I am not interested in instruments with accordion reeds. I also much prefer a vintage Lachenal or Wheatstone as they will keep their value which is very important to me as this instrument wil have to be sold when I have the extra to trade up. Right now, I have a treble tthat is very basic with bone buttons, rosewood ends, steel reeds and could easily get by with a similar TT while I save up. Please advise.
  4. Wanted - 48 Button English To Learn On - West Coast Canada Or PNW, Seattle area. Edit: I am now actively searching for a Lachenal Edeophone 48 key with the large reed pan hole from the late 1920s. I am really enjoying the English concertina but my bone button instrument is in terrible condition and not worth getting professionally restored. I have been told that the Edeophone has the best balance of all the vintage concertinas for the type of music I want to play. It is very important to me that the steel reeds have never been tuned, that it is in old high pitch. The rest of the instrument can be rough as long as it is able to be restored. Please let me know if anyone has something like this or knows of one for sale. I prefer to buy locally in Canada but would certainly be open to getting the right instrument shipped from the UK or the USA. Thanks, John Message me through this forum please.
  5. I'm looking to buy my first english concertina today and I'm going to buy a Stagi English A48-S. The question is if I should choose tenor or treble(baritone is available as well but I don't want one too low). Is the treble too high and annoying or is it smooth and good for leads? Or should I buy a tenor instead? EDIT: I found some videos, and I think treble is a safe bet, you rarely go to the highest C anyways.
  6. I've decided to sell my 45-key Morse Geordie Tenor English hybrid-style (accordion-reeded) concertina, after finally deciding to use my limited free time to concentrate on my stringed instruments. Manufactured in 2011, I bought this concertina from its original owner who apparently didn't use it much in the summer of 2013. Since then it has been gently used several times a week and always in my smoke-free home. As a result, it is in like new condition with no damage to the bellows, woodwork or reeds. It is in tune across the full range. Here's the information about the Geordie from the Morse website http://www.buttonbox.com/morse-geordie.html I've been most impressed by the very fast and responsive action, the quality of the reeds, especially those booming low notes and the extremely light weight considering the size (7" across the flats). It comes very well protected in the original hard case. A very impressive instrument in every respect that deserves to be played more. I'm reducing my price to £1,400 or the equivalent in euros, as I'd really prefer to sell on this forum rather than Ebay, although that's what I'll have to do if there's still no interest here. This price includes insured postage from France within Europe. If it is shipped further afield, I'll pay half the postage & insurance although buyers outside Europe will be responsible for paying any VAT and/or import duties that may be due. I'll make a contribution to Cnet if I sell it here. Please PM me if you'd like any more information. Now on hold as of 14/12/2015 - NOW SOLD Thanks for reading. Dean

    Seeking A 17A Wheatstone (Tenor)

    Years ago, I spotted a rarish Wheatstone Tenor on Ebay. Rarer still was that it was located a half-hour's drive from me in Southern California, so I drove out and inspected it. Sadly, at least for me, I was outbid in the final seconds. I believe it went to someone in the UK. Anyway, I'm renewing my search for another, long shot or not. Mike
  8. I'm advertising this concertina on behalf of an acquaintance in Belgium who liked the Morse Geordie Tenor concertina so much that he owned two of them. I recently bought the older model, which I'm delighted with, and he has now asked me to advertise the remaining new, unplayed model as he has moved on to other interests. Here's a link to the Belgian website on which it is advertised: http://www.2ememain.be/marche/?qq=concertina&afd=&pc_id Some bigger photos can be sent, if necessary and feel free to contact me by PM through this site if you have any questions and I'll pass them on. The asking price is €1,800 which includes insured postage within Europe and PayPal fees. This is a fair price given the current cost of a new model (see www.buttonbox.com) and then shipping and import duties into Europe. I'd like to stress that I'm doing this as a favour and have no financial interest in the sale. The owner will be handling the transaction and posting the concertina but I can vouch for his integrity. Thanks for looking. Dean
