Model : 26 Key Baritone in C/G
Price : £2300
Something you rarely see-a baritone anglo. This one is stamped C. Jeffries -and it certainly isn't. This sort of later stamping in the ends to imply that it was made by Jeffries is not unheard of and there is a concertina in auction this week which looks like a Jeffries but the stamping is just not right. Someone has tried to scratch it out so that people are notm fooled.
It has inset metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
It came in recently in a part exchange deal and has at some time in the past been fitted with new pads, straps, valves, given a bellows rebind and tuned to concert pitch.
It is a little careworn in that the bellows papers are a little stained and the wooden sides are quite scratched-but it does play well for a baritone -which is always a slight issue because the reeds and valves are so big and tlke more air to move them.
Baritones of either kind-English or Anglo are the most sought after concertinas-and anglo ones are far rarer so don't miss this one.
One of a huge range of anglos not on the site so ask if you want something special
