This is a Jeffries 30-Key Anglo in Ab/Eb. It has a full set of original Jeffries steel reeds. It has been fitted with new bellows, bushings, pads, valves and straps, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
This really is a lovely playing instrument, as most Jeffries are. It has the typical Jeffries tone, and plays quickly. An equivalent concertina in C/G would be higher price, which makes this a fantastic deal for somebody looking specifically for an Ab/Eb Jeffries or somebody who is interested in using their concertina for a slightly different purpose. It was almost certainly made in this key originally as the reeds show no signs of excessive filing. This is a brilliant concertina, and for somebody who can utilise it in the key it was made in, it will be absolutely perfect.
The concertina has internal markings which say ‘Captain Joe Barr- August 10/94’, which would be 1894. This may be irrelevant to the quality of the instrument, but it’s little personal touches like this which remind us of the true history of these instruments.
