Crabb 43 key treble E.C.

For sale, English concertina made by Geoffrey Crabb.

 

This instrument was made by Geoff in 2007 and he sold l it to me in 2017; it had had minimal use in the intervening 10 years.

 

The layout is shown in Geoff’s original diagram - photograph attached. Many will find the added F and F sharp in the lower register particularly useful.

 

I am selling because it is not being played. I bought it specifically as a band instrument - for use in the two Ceilidh band I used to belong to, and which I left because of health reasons, a short time after purchasing. Hence it hasn’t had a lot of use during my ownership either. 

It wrist straps fitted because I have arthritic thumb joints and the effectively new bellows were still on the stiff side when I got it; they’re now much, much freer. The fittings and straps were done by Colin Dipper because Geoff was unwell at the time.

 

I'm based in Cornwall, U.K. and I'm looking for £3,500.
