Crabb CG 27 key anglo, an early example with metal ends and bone buttons.

Out of stock



Early Crabb CG 27 key anglo with metal ends and bone buttons. It is slightly smaller than “standard” size and measures 5 7/8″  across the flats.Within the last few years it has had new pads and valves, been tuned to concert pitch and fitted with a new set of 7 fold bellows.  It is stamped internally with a serial number 8587 on both action boards and on both bellows frames.  On the right hand bellows frame is marked Ball Beavon & Co, London, who were a retailer and would have commissioned the instrument from John Crabb.

This anglo is a joy to play, the reed response is superb and the sound sweet and with a great dynamic range.  Any anglo player would be delighted with the way this instrument plays.  A 30 key anglo of this quality would probably cost getting on for double the price of this one so if you can manage without those few extra buttons this is a bargain.
