Inherited concertinas - advice re valuations


Recommended Posts

We seem to be getting a Crabb Serial 18661 and a Lachenal with pretty ends in a wooden case.

Any advice on who would be good for valuations in the south of the UK, we live in Hampshire?

Probably keeping them and husband will attempt to add concertina to the range of instruments played in the family!

It sounds as if you need a repairer to give you an estimate for renovation, rather than simply a valuation.

They were in good condition 10 years ago when they were being played regularly, so I doubt they'd need much renovation, they sound OK on all but one of the buttons, bellows are sound.
