Robin Harrison Posted April 28, 2016 Share Posted April 28, 2016 (edited) I've just added a couple of You-tubes so you can see how it looks and sounds. It occurs to me that if you are looking for a quality English concertina and you are in the States ( or Canada) then the cost of this concertina ( I am selling it for what I paid for it) would allow you to have it tuned by the Button Box and still it would be a great price for such a good concertina. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJhDrXBiK4Q https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDqatqZu96o I'm I bought this a couple of years ago with the intention of re-tuning etc but really don't have any time in the foreseeable future to do the tuning and need to sell some concertinas ( new one coming in ) I have replaced all the original pads & valves and put new thumb straps on. It is in old pitch and the reeds do not have any marks on them that would indicate post-factory tuning. Bellows are fantastic and the ends plates are nice. Not perfect but good . Air release lever ( aka slide valve ) and buttons for wrist strap. Old straps are available but poor condition. Serial # 28030 ; 1919 http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD01/PAGES/D1P1220S.HTM I have not done any re-voicing of the reeds so although it needs tuning, it still plays well and has a strong and rich tone. No case......more images can be shown and a recording too. £2500 ( or US $ equivalent) plus shipping, insurance. I am going towards the Button Box in late May so could deliver near there.
