Description

Shakespeare 38 key Anglo tuned BbF, nickel ends and buttons, steel reeds, concert pitch. Marked internally “Thomas Shakespeare Maker”. Shakespeare was a minor maker who modelled his instruments closely on those of Crabb and Jeffries, though his instruments never reached the level of of performance of the masters. Nevertheless its a very nice concertina and much less money than a Jeffries. Original six fold bellows with new edging, new bellows frame binding and gold tooling new pads fitted in recent years. New valves and full retune June 2019. Comes in a modern hard case.
