Jeffries reeds

Recommended Posts

Why do Jeffries reeds generally sound so good?

Fair enough. Why are VWs such good cars? Because they’re made by VW.

Does anyone sell full sets of Jeffries reeds? I know of at least 2 makers who built new concertinas with vintage Jeffries concertina reeds, so the value is measurable in a dollar amount . Sorry, I know this does not answer your question because I do not have the technical knowledge of a reed-maker, but it is very interesting.

Seriously, the first Jeffries were made by Crabb, and that would be the reed form the Jeffries knew and perhaps developed from. I have often been surprised how crude the Jeffries workmanship  compared with the Crabb counterparts. To be fair though, Jeffries did not have to report emissions data......
