Greetings. I am a new member here. Thank you all for the great resource that is Conc.net. I am an intermediate player in Rhode Island, US that had the good fortune of finding an 1850's era Wheatstone Baritone English (#9399) a few years ago. I had it restored by Wim Wakker. He did a wonderful job, and it has been a joy to play. But having played a 1934 Wheatstone (though not an Aeola) and experienced the much nicer action and Moroccan leather bellows, I have a strong desire to upgrade. I'd like to ask whether anyone has an Aeola or Edeophone (or comparable) that needs a good home. Doesn't hurt to dream, right? There is no urgency here, I simply know I will be playing the rest of my life, and want to grow in my playing with a fine instrument. Please keep me in mind if you or someone you know may be able to help. A tenor treble 56 from the early 20th century would be nice. I can't pay a fortune, but would certainly try to pay a fair price. Thank you for any help you can provide. Best wishes to you all.
