gavdav Posted March 22, 2009 Share Posted March 22, 2009 (edited) I've persevered with this for a few weeks, but have resigned myself to being an Anglo player at heart, and would like to put the money into an Anglo. This beautiful little box is a dead ringer for the one here (kevin Gow's box, middle of page) http://tinyurl.com/cz7j59 It is in amazing external condition with the original gold-tooled handstraps (both) and label, fretwork in perfect condition and perfect bellows with unusual lachenal balck and gold papers. It has been lightly cleaned but still has a patina of age about it. It could be further restored to "as new" condition quite easily if one was so disposed. It has been retuned, repadded and valved by Dave Elliot and is playing rally nicely. I've managed to work a few tunes out, but I'm an in-out kind of person after all. Steel Reeds. Photos on request. I'm looking for £800 o.n.o, which is below the insurance estimate and about 600 quid less than buying a similar box from Hobgoblin or Music Room. cheers Gav Edited March 23, 2009 by gavdav Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
