Repair/Restoration estimate - Mayfair 30-button Anglo

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

New member, been reading here on and off for a while.

 

I'm the proud new owner of a 30-button Mayfair Anglo. It's in need of some TLC.

 

The bellows are intact and the leather is supple. No drying or cracks I can see.

 

It needs new hand straps, and a couple of the buttons stick sometimes.

 

I'm in the US, NJ specifically. Where might I go for good repair work?

 

How much might I expect to pay to get the instrument fully functional again?

 

What's a decent ballpark figure for a sale in its current state, as a project?

 

Thanks in advance!

I bought a May Fair Anglo in excellent condition not too long ago for around $600.  I've seen them advertised at higher prices but I don't know if they sold.

 

You might try Button Box in Massachusetts for repair work.

I'm willing to make the concertina available for sale if people would like to make fair offers.

 

I understand that value can range greatly, but I also understand that the cost of repair can vary if a buyer can do any, much or all of the work themselves.

 

I am in a terrible financial situation with a family to feed - message me and we can discuss a sale.
