My Crabb concertina has been listed for sale for a while onTheo's The Box Place website at £2450.

 

I am keen that it moves on to a good home to get played, and have decided to help the process by significantly reducing the price down to £2000.

The history of this concertina was discussed here in a thread a number of years ago with definitive input from Geoffrey Crabb. He confirmed it was one of a batch of ten made in 1960 by his father and brother.

 

I purchased the concertina a few decades later from Chris Algar.

 

Since then, Theo has undertaken some restorative work on it including replacing the bellows/reedpan gaskets and some of the button bushings.

In terms of its specification:

- Steel reeds

- Metal ends

- 6 fold bellows

- Lachenal/Wheatstone button layout

- Leather carry case.

 

The concertina is currently residing with Theo at The Box Place, so he can also help with any specific questions.

 

Feel free to make me a sensible offer. I might even consider a D/G melodeon in part-ex!!
