36 button wheatstone linota FS

Please forgive me if this is slightly out of order but there isn't a sort of Irish, charisma, Jeffries thing going on here is there?

Jeffries instruments seem to fetch far more Euros than they are worth in GBP lately. I wonder whether it isn't a little bit competitive in Ireland now?

Andy,

 

I have heard repeatedly that until recently Chris Algar could get better prices for concertinas (Jeffries and Wheatstones high among them) in Ireland than elsewhere. It's to his credit that he hasn't sent them all there and left the rest of the world to do without. However, the current economic situation in Ireland probably means that the demand for fine concertinas has softened somewhat. I must admit at the same time that almost any time I see some new up-and-coming young concertina player performing on YouTube, it's likely to be a Jeffries sitting in their lap!

 

But strong economy or weak, goods of high quality always retain their value better -- no matter where you go.

 

Happy Holidays,

 

Ross Schlabach

Looks like Sean found his buyer. I'm pleased for him but I still have a soft spot for that Linota.
