KeithB Posted February 11, 2008 Author Share Posted February 11, 2008 Sounds a bit light to me, Paul. I just sold a late-ish (1949) extended treble Aeola to a friend for £1950. (Steve Dickinson suggested £2000 to £2500.) Admittedly there seems to be some doubt about the range of this one, but it's clearly a cracker, and if it was refurbished 20 years ago, it may well already be in concert pitch. I did actually suggest a word with Chris Algar a couple of days ago, but my reply seems to have got lost in the ether. I also suggested that there would be several readers of this forum who would be happy to pay £2000 for it - mainly on the grounds that I would expect it to fetch at least £2500 when restored. Hi Dave, That's why it's best to avoid giving this sort of advice. Ah well. I actually missed the bit about it being restored 20 years back. I started at GBP2500 for a 56b restored tenor treble and reduced it to allow for work and for the extra buttons. If I'd put a range it would have been upwards. I looked through the records for the last few years and as usual the prices are variable but your 2k would be in the ballpark I think (say 1900 to 2200?). Restored it may be a bit more. Firstly massive thanks to everyone who has contributed. I no longer feel so alone. But also realise again how little I know and how much there is to know. So apparently our little 'tina is on concert pitch and is in tune (my father-in-law is far more musical than I and tested this against his paino). Also the bottom note is the F below the C below middle C. I'm really hoping this means more to everyone out there than it means to me.
