  1. This is the standard model, with all the options, an air lever instead of an air button, decorative papers, and metal buttons, as described here: https://wolvertonconcertinas.com/page/ Seller is open to offers. C'est beau, mon ami, bonne chance.
  2. Et, savez-vous, est-ce le model standard ou le model Advanced?
  3. Combien vous la vendiez? Merci
  4. What am I talking? You can play just about anything (theoretically). "One man's flat is another man's sharp." -- Anonymous

    Hi Jim, PM sent
  6. Just for the record (and not to nitpick) you could also play in F and B flat. What more could you want? Sounds like a nice 'tina!
  7. Sorry, Bob I didn't get a PM. Want to try my regular email? douknielson@comcast.net Thanks
  8. Hi Bob, Is the Clover 30 button anglo or the Tedrow baritone in Jeffries layout? And how wide is the latter, across the flats? Great photos, BTW. Thanks, Doug
  9. Thanks for the responses; I've now got a better idea of what's involved, i.e., I don't think I'll try to tackle switching back and forth (unless someone hands me a nice Wheatstone). And thanks, Ken, for the merge.
  10. Thanks, Jim It makes sense to me that switching between more different systems, i.e. Anglo and English, concertina and B/C accordion, would be easier, but I accept the fact that this ability differs widely from person to person, there being no way to predict how easily any individual might be able to do it, and that practice would increase the odds of pulling it off. Merging the two threads seems like a good idea, but I don't know how to go about it.
  11. I'd like to hear about people's experiences with playing both Jeffries and Wheatstone layouts in Anglo concertinas and switching back and forth between them, difficulties encountered, strategies for making it work, or if it's crazy to even contemplate doing it, etc. My own experience is limited, I learned on Wheatstone layout, and when I was thinking of buying a better instrument, I studied the layout charts, and swore I'd never want anything other than Wheatstone. When I bought my Edgley on eBay, it was advertised as Wheatstone, so I was pretty annoyed to find out it was actually Jeffries. I even talked to Frank about the cost of changing the reeds in the third row on the right. But once I learned to play Jeffries, I discovered I liked it a lot more. It took a while for my fingers to adapt, though. After that, I tried to play Wheatstone layout once, but gave it up quickly, for various reasons. So far, I’ve heard from Doug Anderson, who said “I spent several months trying to play both my Morse with the Wheatstone layout and my Jeffries with the Jeffries layout - both are G/D Anglos. I eventually gave up and sent the Morse to The Button Box to have the reeds changed to the Jeffries layout. I had no particular preference for one layout over the other but switching the Morse was a much more practical solution.”
  12. Learn something new every day. I'm still hoping someone will suggest the proper forum for my question: General Concertina Discussion, Teaching and Learning, other? Anyone?
  13. Yes, Anglos. I could be wrong, but I don't think Jeffries and Wheatstone layouts apply to English. Or duet for that matter. Thanks, Doug Anderson. That's funny. I started on Wheatstone, and after studying the layout charts, swore I'd never want anything else. When I bought my Edgley on eBay, it was advertised as Wheatstone, so I was pretty annoyed to find out it was actually Jeffries, but once I learned it I discovered I liked it a lot more, so go figger. It took a while form my fingers to adapt, though.
  14. I'd like to post a question about people's experiences with playing both Jeffries and Wheatstone layouts and switching back and forth between them, difficulties encountered (or if it's crazy to even contemplate it) etc., not a debate about which is best or preferred, but I'm not sure which forum it belongs in. Any suggestions?
