Concertina Description

A Jeffries style 38 key C/G anglo.

It has Jeffries accidental layout and Jeffries style bellows papers but it isn't a Jeffries!

I would like to give some idea of what it is but it does not have normal Shakespeare features nor Crabb.

It is however a really well playing concertina.

It has metal ends which seem to be raised in the button area, metal buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows + a decent fibreglass case.

It has been restored with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch. 

The bellows-being green have scuffs which cannot be easily hidden as you can with black but they are a good set of bellows. They don't have the normal gold tooling.

The reeds are really nice-whoever made them-very responsive and in good condition.

This is a very nice playing instrument-it just doesn't look as good as the very best makes but is half the price of a good Jeffries and plays way more than half as good!
