Chris Allert Posted June 20, 2012 Share Posted June 20, 2012 I'm very sad to say i'll need to sell this instrument soon. It's a metal-ended c/g jeffries copy with jeffries bellows papers and jeffries layout. Juergen Suttner currently has a four year waiting list. to buy this instrument new from him would be about us$5000 with the current exchange rate. this is instrument #298, which I acquired new in 2005. He's gotten very good at making them. i've only played this instrument at home since i've had it. I've played it between 5-20 hours each week since i've owned it, so it's very well "broken in" by now. but there are no signs of wear on the bellows as i only rest the corner of the instrument on one leg. I'm in olympia, washington and can meet you either here or in seattle if you want to try the instrument out. if you're going to the noel hill summer school, this would be a very good instrument to take with you. you'll make a lot more progress on a good instrument than a mediocre one, and having something that sounds like a concertina really does help one get better more quickly (at least that was my experience). and you'll get more out of the summer school if you've had a good instrument to get used to for a few months before you go. all reasonable offers will be considered. i'm not sure what reasonable is until i hear it, so please bid what you can, you may be lucky.
