Ivan Viehoff Posted November 23, 2006 Share Posted November 23, 2006 The common view is that Maccanns are selling well these days. Which might explain why such a glut has suddenly come on the market. Having waited a very long time for the right 57/8-key to come up, I purchased the one that Alistair Brown recently advertised. But a remarkable number of 57-62 key Maccanns have been put on sale in the last couple of weeks. This one just come up on ebay looks like a stunna http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/McCann-60-button-Due...1QQcmdZViewItem Originally a 58-key it has been heavily Dipperised, adding in G-A-B on the left hand for the loss only of the D#. Surely very attractive in such compact instrument. Must be something very odd in the market if it fails to get the interest that all these ones oddly didn't: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...p;rd=1&rd=1 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...p;rd=1&rd=1 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...p;rd=1&rd=1 So that is a 61-key Edeophone, a 62-key Wheatstone with raised metal ends, and a 58-key 1950s Wheatstone with wooden ends all failed to sell. 46-keys seem to be coming up very regularly at the moment too.
