Wanted.......victorian Brass Reeded English Concertina


Recommended Posts

hi all,


I'm after a brass reeded English concertina, condition unimportant for my 7 month to play with/ eat/ become the next regondi........


It can have leaky valves , wheezey bellows and battered woodwork, I'm sure he won't mind but I guess I'd like it in tune with itself?


He's been paying particular attention to me playing carols over the last few weeks and my wife has suggested he should have one!!!


all the best,

Hi Simon,

hi Geoff,


anything lying around le workshop?!!! :)

Well, errr,..... yes but it is not quite victorian... it does have the creeky bellows and less than perfect exterior woodwork.. it is reasonably in-tune but it has Steel reeds..... it also has the Flat reedpans although with wooden ends and Mahogany pallet boards the sound is nice ... and I have been contemplating a restoration... or more recently.... perhaps a conversion <_<..... perhaps to a duet ??


How's that Baritone with the metal ends keeping ? :wub:
