Arcadia one row Accordion/Melodeon 4 stop in C major.

I thought I was going to be in a new Cajun Zydeco band. I got very excited because it’s great music but sadly it never happened. I have practiced  on it a bit but have only sat on it to be honest with the hope that one day I might be in another Cajun band. I now have a Double Bass so something has to go! Because of little playing the bellows are not yet fully played in.
It is a big sound when all the stops are out - four voices in all - but it is capable of a subtle wistful sound as well with a one reed stop open.
I have an mp3 demonstrating all the sound permutations this wonderful machine is capable of. Let me know if you would like me to send this to you. 
It comes with its own nylon backpack case and has a spare shoulder strap but the norm is to use only one strap.

Dino Bafetti Black Pearl II for sale £750 - no offers please
Bought from Theo at The Box Place in 2011. Low notes* not accidentals on the treble side. *( D Row - F sharp push and A pull. G row - B push and D pull) B bass plays to B minor chord not major. Currently the thirds are taped out but that is easily changed.

Fairly good condition for age, only minor dings and some marking from work shop work on the bass side. It once had a thumb strap the screw hole for that is still behind the treble board. (See photos). Was well used before I got it so bellows are quite free but still very playable. More photos here.
Hardly played at all over the last seven years. I had intended to work on two row playing but got more into my 2 1/2 row D/G and 3 row G/C. This one just doesn't get played so needs to go to a better home. I'm based in the South Brent area. Can send for £27.60 insured or available to collect. Contact: Steve on 01364-73490

Charles Roberts uilleann pipes practice set just serviced and new reed.

Hi here we have my Charles Roberts uilleann pipes practice set. These are totally hand made by Charles in Co Sligo Ireland and are a high quality set they retail about 1000e and I believe there’s a waiting list months long.

I might be up for swapping these for a high-quality bouzouki / mandola / mandolin / mandocello / cittern / tenor banjo what have you? (quality handmade instruments only please).
