A few days .. but then they get stuck in customs for a few months, that's if they don't blow em up on basis that they're suspicious objects :)

I hope I get a customs officer that knows what a concertina is. ;)

 

I'm hoping it will arrive by EATMT in September.

30-button Tedrow? This'll have you back playing non-stop, & no more inclination to make heretical statements about how much more fun it is to play Melodeon.

I'm not so sure, it sounds as though LDT is off to "Traditional Music Day" in stowmarket. This years focus is on penny whistles, mouth-organs and jew’s harps.

Ooooh, its coming! My concertina. How long do concertina shaped parcels genearally take from the US to UK?

Just like "a watched pot never boils", "a waited for concertina never arrives". Also, the package won't be concertina shaped, it'll be a cube...or at least it started out as a cube, after going through the caring hands of the postal service, there's no telling what it'll look like. I hope it's insured. :(

Just kidding! :P I'm sure it'll be fine. :ph34r:

My Bastari Hayden bandoneon took all of 10 days to arrive from the UK (wherever Brian Hayden himself mailed it from) to northeastern USA. I was impressed. THe box was indeed a cube, and still a cube. It had not been mistreated, and US Customs ignored it, whew!

Rod,

It didn't come directly from Chris's shop, but it did come from the UK through a shop called Phils Historic Instruments on Ebay.

If I remember correctly, it took about 2 weeks.
