Jake Middleton-Metcalfe Posted July 28, 2012 Share Posted July 28, 2012 (edited) Hello I have played the melodeon for years and approached the anglo a couple of years ago as a means of getting a more portable and chromatic instrument, with a similar playing style. However having now tried my friends english more extensively I think I would be best off with an english concertina, I am also starting to explore more classical music and other genres than folk. The tina I offer is a 7 fold bellows metal ended C/G Ap James concertina, it has 'gold star' style lachenal bellows papers. This is a hybrid concertina. New they are £1200, I paid a bit extra for the papers and extra fold. I think this is nicer than selling it and buying an english because I could meet the person who I would be trading with and we could play each others instruments and have a good decide weather we both like the deal. I seek a standard english treble concertina of the same quality, I am not bothered weather it is hybrid or traditional. Going by the price guide on the barleycorn concertina website, something like a higher end lachenal or mid range wheatsone in concert pitch would be good but I am open to all your offers. Either way, something that is ready to play. I would also consider selling it, if someone wanted to buy it I would accept offers around £1100 Here is a link to the website of the maker, look at the one with metal ends, that is the same as my one but with 7 folds and lachenal bellow papers: http://www.apjmusic.co.uk/apj_30button_anglo.htm here is a video of me playing it: at this time pictures of the actual thing cant be done, as it is at my dads house miles away! I will upload when i am able. Thanks for reading! Edited July 29, 2012 by Jake of Hertford Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
