groeswenphil Posted August 22, 2007 Share Posted August 22, 2007 Hi Group, I've a South African 40 button Anglo that I'm thinking about selling. It's about 25 years old. I bought it from Marcus Butler. At the time, he had two for sale. One had a huge white Hohner badge across one of the ends, the other carried no marks at all. I bought the unmarked one. I believe that it was imported by Hohner music from South Africa. It is quite unlike any other Hohner concertina that you'll ever come across. It's amazingly well built........really strong and sturdy. Thing is, I bought myself a new G/D Marcus about a year ago. I play for the local Morris, so G/D appears much easier for me. As a result, I haven't touched this South African Anglo for some time. It's a pity leaving it to languish in a cupboard. It has so much to offer. It could suite somebody who wanted the versatility that 40 buttons has to offer.......so many notes available both on push and pull. Strangely, it could be a great instrument for a beginner as it is so well built. I believe that it has accordian type reeds set in their own chambers, much like a melodeon. I can't imagine getting much for the instrument though as it carries no manufacturers details at all. I'm wondering about how much would I expect for the instrument........or should I just put it back in the cupboard until grandchildren arrive?
