Clive Thorne Posted July 4, 2021 Share Posted July 4, 2021 I know that quite a lot of early C.Jeffies concertinas were actually built by Crabb, but beyond that I am unclear. Did Mr Jeffries re-temper and fettle the reeds etc., or did he simply stamp his name on the end, or what? I have an interest in this because when I had Colin Dipper do some work on my "C. Jeffries" aorund 15 years ago,he said that it was probably built by Crabb, and that it looked like it might originally have had wooden ends. To honest I'm not too bothered whether it's a Crabb or a Jeffries as it is a lovely instrument either way. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
