For sale Rock Chidley 48 button English Concertina

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Rock Chidley concertina from a famous dealer it had been tuned , new pads etc is in an original case.

it has I believe nickel silver reeds. Wooden ends probably bone buttons but not sure. I would like to get at least half my investment back.

I paid £800 but would accept £450 .. The arthritis in my thumb just makes it to painful to play.. A bargain I think!

Pity that you have to give up playing Mike!

 

As to the reeds, they will most likely have been made of either steel or brass.

 

Best wishes - Wolf

I am assured they are nickel silver reeds by two repairers, I need the cash to fettle a 39 key Lachenal Duet

that I have. I recently took up this system and am really please with the possibilities it offers.

And the straps pass around the back of my hand! . The Rock Chidley is good , it really plays fine but pulls too much on my thumbs on the draw.  I am 77 , I will never give up playing music on something! Mike

oh I see - sorry to have misinterpreted your post.

 

and re the reeds: of course I take it from you that I'm apparently mistaken here.
