Pete Dickey Posted February 8, 2006 Share Posted February 8, 2006 So we know from records that Lachenal numbers got into the 200,000's and Wheatstones into the 50,000's and there were a couple of thousand Crabb's some of which ended up as Jeffries. What I would like to know is roughly how many Jeffries concertinas were made? Given their scarcity, it seems that every time you go to a decent session, there is someone in the corner playing a Jeffries of some description, be it a C Jeffries or Jeffries Brothers with 30 to 40 keys in whatever tuning, or sometimes even a Jeffries Duet of the type not yet converted into an Anglo. For something apparently so desirable there do seem to be a lot of them about or were more than we think originally Crabb concertinas which were renamed? Even old fraudulent Jeffries copies may be more prolific than we know? Pete (the owner of a C. Jeffries GD - I think ) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
