12 button Mini Wheatstone English for sale (Oregon USA)

Recommended Posts

I have decided to sell my mini Wheatstone which I purchased about 10-12 years ago in England.  I bought it out of a love for miniature instruments, but I am an Anglo player and never really got the hang of playing this one.  It is in excellent condition barring the following two details:


1) The box it comes in needs to be re-taped along the outer hinge.  Inner hinge is solid.

2) The lowest button on the right side plays a hint of the wrong reed while pressed.  This is demonstrated in the video below.


The Wheatstone's serial number is 36774.  According to pp 101-102 of Horniman Museum ledger SD03, this dates it to November 28 1963.  It comes with a lockable hard case and two keys.  The lock works.  The box measures 7 inches long, 4 1/4 inches deep and 3 1/2 inches high.  The concertina measures 3 1/8 inches at widest point, 2 3/4 inches from flat to flat and 5 3/4 inches long including the buttons.


I am asking $2,000 US for this instrument, including shipping and insurance within the US.  I may consider best offers if it does not sell at this price.

Pickup in Eugene Oregon area welcome (with a corresponding discount for shipping/insurance).
