Black Satin Finish, Upgraded Tipo a Mano reeds

Modified Jeffries (Kensington) layout

 

I bought this new in October, 2017 to play while recovering from an elbow injury because of its very light weight and easy action.  I’m back to playing my traditionally reeded instrument and can’t afford to keep two C/Gs.

 

It’s essentially like new, except that the bellows are nicely played in, and there is a bit of patina on the fretwork around the most commonly played buttons. Also, there are a pair of slight “dimples” on the fretwork where microphones were attached (see photo-just right of label). It comes with the Button Box hard case.

 

This is a fast, responsive box, and the upgraded reeds are very “concertina-like” in tone.  The Kensington layout

is particularly well suited for ITM style playing, but I used it as an all rounder, playing English and Contra repertoire as well.

 

This was US $2745 (Can $3560) new, plus shipping and tax.  I’m now asking US $2100 plus shipping.  This would be a particularly good deal for a fellow Canadian because there would be no HST.  I am in the Hamilton/Toronto area and could meet up locally for try-outs.
