Jonathan Taylor Posted May 21, 2013 Share Posted May 21, 2013 This instrument carries the number 4018, and is in excellent condition. It has a nice bright sound, comparable to my metal-ended tenor treble Aeola (if that helps). It has been retuned to A = 440 Hz, and the bellows are very tight, more so than aforementioned Aeola. However, there is no case except for a Stagi soft gig bag. I'm selling this for a Swiss friend with limited knowledge of English. He originally acquired it from a Swiss accordion dealer and collector, without knowing much about concertinas or their various systems. He taught himself to play it, but always had the feeling that it was a little too "sophisticated" for him. In one of life's little coincidences last summer he met another accordion collector, who happened to have among other things a Crane duet, to which he very quickly took a liking. Hence the Maccann becoming surplus to requirements. We're seeking to get GBP 2000 for it (incl. CNet contribution, but excl. shipping), which I hope is not unrealistic. More high-resolution photos are available if anyone's interested. If I had any interest in learning the Maccann I would buy it myself at that price.
