Early Extended Treble Edeophone With Glass Buttons
Posted 16 February 2017 - 10:24 AM
When I bought it, it had a rather stiff set of 5-fold bellows, but I happened to have a later Edeophone whose ends were beyond repair, but which had a good 6-fold set, so I cannibalised it, and those are the bellows you see here.
Restoration work has included new pads, valves, dampers, bushings and straps. All chamois seals have been replaced, all woodwork has been stripped and refinished in French polish, and the instrument has been tuned to modern concert pitch.
It lacks its original case, but I will throw in an Aldi angler's bag, which has compartments enough for a few spares and a screwdriver, and a waterproof compartment for a pair of kippers.
Asking price is £2950. If you'd like to give it a test drive in Norwich, please send me a PM, or call me on 01603 702644.

It also appears to have some of the other desirable features of the New Models, like the raised ends/ New Model-esque fretwork. Just curious, is the action also similar to a New Model?

It is interesting, though, to see how the Edeophone developed from the New Model - but then I have always thought of the Edeophone as a New Model in its Sunday best.

I was curious if the levers were the (flattened on parallel sides) wire type or the type that were made from sheet brass? I do not know if I explained that very well.
