lacken28 asked a question 12/10/2011 12:27 pm (2 years ago):
hi, I am on the lookout for a good concertina. Is the bellows fully intact and what are the reeds like
Tim Morris says 12/10/2011 8:06 pm (2 years ago):
@lacken28: Hi, the bellows are perfect and all the reeds work fine in both directions, no buzzing or any other strange noises.
lacken28 asked a question 12/10/2011 9:26 pm (2 years ago):
sorry, one more question. Do you play yourself and if so would you consider the buttons stiff to push.
Tim Morris says 12/10/2011 11:20 pm (2 years ago):
@lacken28: Hi there, no I don't play myself so I cannot vouch for the button feel. This belonged to my late father who was an avid concertina player so the concertina was kept in good condition. I suggest if you are interested you are welcome to come and try it out. Send me a pm for the address if you want to have a look. Regards Tim

Hi Tim, I'll give you 400 for it.
Tim Morris says 12/01/2012 2:12 am (2 years ago):
OK, you got a deal at €400 - based on you collecting or if you need shipping you pay for packing / courier costs.  Sending you a pm to make the arrangements.  Cheers Tim
Sharon3791 asked a question 13/02/2012 12:47 pm (2 years ago):
Is this still for sale?
Tim Morris says 13/02/2012 2:32 pm (2 years ago):
Still Available: Fracturedreeds never got back to me???  So available at the price I agreed to at €400.
Tim Morris says 13/02/2012 2:33 pm (2 years ago):
@Sharon3791: Hi there, yes the Mayfair is still for sale. If you are interested then I'd recommend a try before you buy, although I'm sure you'd be impressed. Regards Tim
Boxlad asked a question 01/04/2012 1:45 am (2 years ago):
Are you willing to go any lower on the price?
Tim Morris says 01/04/2012 1:22 pm (2 years ago):
@Boxlad: Hi, considering none of the interest shown has actually arrived at a sale so far then yes, within reason. Please note that there are a couple of Mayfair's in the UK at Hobgoblin selling for over £500 GBP so make it a sensible offer please.
