hi, I am on the lookout for a good concertina. Is the bellows fully intact and what are the reeds like
Tim Morris 4 years ago
@lacken28: Hi, the bellows are perfect and all the reeds work fine in both directions, no buzzing or any other strange noises.

sorry, one more question. Do you play yourself and if so would you consider the buttons stiff to push.
Tim Morris 4 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

Are you willing to go any lower on the price?
Tim Morris 3 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.
