This is a Crabb 30-Key Anglo in C/G. It has been fitted with new bellows and bushings, a new set of metal buttons, new pads straps and valves, and it has been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz). It has its full set of original steel reeds. The serial number of this concertina is 8460 (made in 1895).
This is a fantastic concertina. Some instruments are a joy to restore in some ways but a complete pain in others, and this would fall into that category. The downside was that every reed had been moved around the concertina in a fairly non-sensical way, but the upside is that it has fantastic quality Crabb reeds and now plays like a dream! Whilst not quite at the standard of a top Jeffries, which is reflected in the price, this is a brilliant concertina for any musician, and an alternative to a Jeffries that will save you a lot of money!
