Sale: Delicia Popular Deluxe DG with case - see demo video
« on: December 31, 2011, 05:40:06 PM »

Hi

For sale Delicia Popular Deluxe DG melodeon. Wooden construction. Made in the Czech Republic so seems to pre-date the tide of (I am sure high quality) Chinese made boxes.
See demo video here:

Located near Andover, Hampshire, UK. Offers in the region of £300. Can be collected or I can organise carriage.
Soft carrying case is included.
Instrument is about 7 years old and has served me well.
Reason for sale: I have upgraded to an Italian box.

I used to sell these, and very nice they are too.  Extremely well put together, and loud.  The reeds are excellent too.  I seem to remember that at that time - mid to  late nineties, that Delicia were adverising the fact that these boxes were made using tipo a mano reeds.  I've been trying to find one of the old Hobgoblin catalogues advertising these - without success:(

The red faked inlay on the front of the box is actually a paint finish which is on top of the laquer, and can be removed with a little effort, and the box looks better for it.

I learned on a battered ancient celluloid Popular. Wish I hadn't sold it on, it was an OK box for a beginner and it would be nice to have a spare D/G. The newer ones that I've played have been most unimpressive.

I told myself that until I had played in public a couple of times I wasn't to buy a more expensive box (to prove to myself that I was worth a better box and to get over performer's nerves). I busked at the St Mary Bourne Music Festival in June and was asked to do a slot at a cultural evening a couple of months ago; so I got my hands on a Dino Baffetti Carnival II last week and oh the difference.... I am just so addicted to the sound of squeezeboxes.
So my trusty Delicia has to go. You have probably seen the demo vid. It is yours if you make me a reasonable offer  :¬)

I am currently looking around for a good starter box, is this still available?

Hi

Yes, this box is still available and open to reasonable offers. Soft case included and see the demo video in previous posts.
Can be seen/tried just north of Andover, UK.
I may eventually put it onto eBay, but really would prefer it to go to enthusiast from Mel.net, as it's been a good friend to me...

Hi Roger,

Thanks for the reply. It looks like a lovely box. Sadly due to unforeseen expenditures it is going to be a few months before I can gather the money together.

I hope the box goes to a good home.

Thanks again,

Chappie
