I bought this concertina from images but without examining it, and I presumed that it was a Jones as they often made 26 keys with quite crude fretwork-which this has. Having said that, this one does not have the usual fretwork for a Jones.
As soon as I played it I realised that it had the “growl” of the basic Crabb and Jeffries budget-model wooden-ended anglos. As the ends are refinished and it has new bellows-any of the most obvious clues as to its maker have been lost but the reeds are not typical Jones reeds.
It has got refinished ends, new pads, valves, straps and it is tuned to Bb/F concert pitch. It also has a set of new, quality 6 fold bellows.
It plays really well for a budget concertina and has a great sound.
Model: 26 Key in Bb/F
