Reluctant sale of a very nice six sided 57 key duet dating back to 1915. 8 fold bellows in good condition. Previously owned by well known songwriter Keith Marsden (there's a couple of pics in the Picking Sooty Blackberries book).

 

Lovely tone, typical of a good period metal ended wheatstone. Nice singing box. I've so far only learned to play it convincingly in F and am an anglo player at heart, but I'm a fan of the Maccann system - pretty straightforward and very rewarding!

 

according to the ledgers this is

 

May 12th 1915 number 26825 58 keys (57 plus air) Maccann duet

 

I'm after offers around £1600, and happy to negotiate soemthing. Donation to c.net if sold on here.

 

I'm based in North London, UK, where you're welcome to try the instrument. post-315-0-29160600-1372943535_thumb.jpg
