|Type : Anglo|
Make : Jeffries
Model : 26 Key in C/G
Price : £2000
Another one of the rarer models.
This is a Jeffries 26 key with wooden ends, bone buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It came in as a part exchange -already restored- but it has been gone through again and has new valves, pads, and is touch tuned to concert pitch.
It plays really well and I do plan to bush the buttons when I can get it to my restorer-but they are always unbushed on this model and you don't tend to notice when playing.
The bellows are very sound but the papers are quite stained-again-something I plan to have done at the first opportunity-although anyone can actually do it themselves for little money.
This concertina has good reeds and has that unique sound that the wooden-ended Jeffries have.
