George Jones 20 buttons in G/C, sweet sound

Recommended Posts

I am selling my beautiful George Jones 20 buttons in G/C. 
It took me ages to learn 2 tunes that I can't even play properly and concertina is an expensive instrument so I can't “afford” to keep it.

It is a fun instrument but I decide to put all my effort on the melodeon.

 

- Rosewood end
- Bushed button
- Play well from top to bottom (no reeds are hard to speak)
- Airtight/compression is very good
- Sweet and warm tone
- Steel reeds
- Bottom left button of G row is low A
- soft case included

 

Please find a video of me playing to have an idea of the sound with smartphone (I didn't try my best 😉

Bought from Chris Algar (Barleycorn) a few month ago for 650 euros, looking for 550 euros (sent from Belgium). He said it is a nice one.

Concertina on hold...by me 🙂

Took it out of the box for fun yesterday and really love the sound, feeling and all.

I played it in a room with some echo...a very interesting experience 👍

Good on you! I  have the same model, and I believe I like it's sound over the crabb, a carroll, and a lachenal I have. So keep at it, it's not an easy instrument to become adept at.

Thank you Wes ! Yes not an easy instrument but a lot of fun when one can play a tune with expression.

Indeed, I had some good friends comment about how it sound !
