SOLD - Wheatstone 48 button Crane Duet

Recommended Posts

Wheatstone 1T 48 button Crane Duet.  S/N 35883.  Nice original condition.  Just tuned and pads / valves replaced as needed.    Comes with original Wheatstone case.

I bought this a few months ago because I thought I wouldn't find a 35 button Wheatstone Crane.  Now, I've found one and since I already have a 48 button Lachenal, I don't need two Cranes of that size.  I do like the fact that this instrument is very light and responsive with a sweet rich tone in the lower left hand. Its said that the early 50's instruments are not from the golden period, so, I won't charge like that.  I have £850 in it without shipping.  That's about $1100, without packing and shipping, and that's what I'll offer it up for.

 

I would also entertain a possible trade for a 46 button or bigger Maccann.

Looks like a wonderful instrument.  I would be tempted if I have not just bought a new vintage EC from Greg Jowaisas.

Think of it as homage to Dirge.

If only I had $1100. You wouldn't even have to ship it.
