Wheatstone Aeola

Recommended Posts

For Sale: Wheatstone Aeola 48 button English Concertina. Serial #24873, Key of C.

 

I purchased this Concertina from Barleycorn Concertinas in England, and recently (2013) had it serviced at The Button Box in Massachusetts.

 

Falling within the dear and lost years periods of the Wheatstone company, this Ebony ended concertina has unique fretwork, and is in perfect playing condition. All buttons play clearly and in perfect pitch.

 

I am located in the Western United States.

I have never used this forum before, but am aware of the 2% donation policy.

 

I am located in Montana but will be traveling to Southern California next week and can bring the instrument with me.

I originally invested $4,800 in the Concertina, and an aditional $350 to have the instrument checked over and serviced (fine-tuned some reeds and fixed a couple reeds that had either stopped playing, or were slow to play).

 

I would be willing to let the instrument go for $4200USD.

A couple of pictures and some idea of a price would help...

I noticed that the fretwork holes seem pretty minimal compared to many English concertinas. Would that make this one on the quiet side?
