Looking for a G/C box
« on: May 02, 2017, 09:55:51 AM »

I'm thinking of dipping my toe in to the world of G/C. Mainly as I seem to spend a lot of my time on you tube working out how to play tunes played on a G/C on a D/G. It would be nice to play some of the tunes in the original key rather than just transposing.

Has anyone got anything G/C which they are thinking of letting go? My preference is for a dry tuned box and not too expensive - a Sandpiper would be perfect.

Thanks in advance :-)

There is a good website in France if you're prepared to take a chance. Often has pokerworks etc and many more expensive ones too.
Diatoccaz.fr look under offres.

This very nice treble-button-travel-limited, bass-button-bushed and pallettes-refaced Hohner G/C is still available. £300 plus postage.
