B/c Boxes For Sale

Recommended Posts

My husband bought his final choice of boxes to see him through

retirement, he bought 3, all brand new...bought in May and June this year.

 

Unfortunately he has an old shoulder injury which is now flaring up

at increasing intervals, his doctor says the box playing is

aggravating the condition. He only had the problem occasionally when

playing before which is why he picked light and easy boxes.

 

I have *lent* him my anglo concertina to try his hand at....he is

getting along a little to well with MY concertina actually.

 

So he has decided to sell his beloved boxes and go with the anglo as

it isn't causing any problems to his shoulder at all.

 

The boxes are:-

 

Catagnari Tommy in walnut b/c dry tuned...new £1895....selling

£1200

Cairdin 2v in oak b/c dry tuned...new £1500?.....selling for

£950

Castagnari Max 4v 1 row melodeon in C...new £1350 selling for

£750

 

If there are any questions just ask.

I can supply photos, and anyone is welcome to come and try them if

you are in the north-east of England.

If you want to get him away from your anglo, you might suggest he try an English or duet. You could tell him that less in an out of the bellows might be easier on his shoulder. (I know you said he has no problem with the anglo, but you could suggest that he might. ;))

Ah Jim, if only....

 

Has to be anglo as it is the same as the boxes, so no problem for him and nothing new to learn.

English :o to play in a session :blink: I wouldn't dare suggest it :lol:

 

Anyway I can't really lose.......you see he is putting an order in with Colin Dipper, so in a few years when I give him a few pokes in the offending shoulder for snoring :lol: he will just have to give up and take to the whistle or something and just let me have his new concertina :D

I'm am puzzling how to qualify this attitude/behaviour:

  • A splendid mix of patience/vision/strategy ;) or:
  • typical female behaviour :angry: , or:
  • both? or
  • ???????? :unsure: :unsure:
