JimLucas Posted June 8, 2005 Share Posted June 8, 2005 This is a rare and very special instrument. The keyboard layout is the one described in George Jones' 1884 patent "Improvements in Anglo-German Concertinas". I've come to really like this layout, but the instrument is built for bigger hands than mine, or at least longer, stronger little fingers. So it's time to sell it on, to someone who can make better use of it. I've put details -- particularly description of the keyboard layout and its advantages -- and photos (inside and out) on a web page here. In the morning I plan to do some recording, so you can also hear what it sounds like. I would like to get £1500 for this gem, but will consider any serious offer. If I don't get serious interest here within the next couple of days, it goes on eBay. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
