So, if you have an edeophone, are you committed to always have some sort of foam pad or towel to set it on so it does not roll off the table?? Or are they not THAT unstable? Shelly

The only way forward is a concave tabletop.

They're not that unstable. I had one for a while and never lost it. They encourage a little more thought about exactly where you put them though.

Now Geoff Crabb's 16-sided Crane might be a bit more interesting in that regard ....

Or one of the rare round "Edeophones".
(There's an old thread about them, somewhere.)

Even with an ordinary concertina, though, I try to make sure that there's always something between it and the edge of the table... if it's on a table at all.

Away from home I make a habit of keeping the case on the floor under the table, and the concertina in the closed case while I'm not playing. (If no table, under my chair. If no chair, at my feet.)

Very wise advise !

I do recall, however, a story of a Concertina(in its case) being stolen from between the feet of its (standing) owner !

This one might roll off a table.

10 bucks delivered.......... or make your own. There is an expensive rather exclusive fashion accessory known as the Crabb version which uses Geoff's old socks, filled with sand or whatever and stitched shut at the shin end. This way you get the Old Brut/Spice aroma (phew) and if someone moves in on your toon at a session you can just slug em with it and claim it is a classic Old Master crossover movement. :lol:
