lxnx Posted February 13, 2014 Share Posted February 13, 2014 (edited) Apologies if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find much from searching. I was just wondering what it is that makes Jeffries concertinas so sought after? Is it purely because of their sound/build quality? If so, can't concertinas by modern makers easily replicate this? Or is it that they were made by someone with levels of mastery/experience that haven't been reached currently? Is it because they're good quality for their age, aesthetically pleasing, and they're sought after as a classic car might be? I've occasionally seen these concertinas for sale which state that e.g. bellows/valves/straps/buttons have been replaced. In these, what still makes them sought after? Just the reeds/wood/decoration? I've never tried one (and am probably never likely to get the chance), so this is something I'm just curious about.
