Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Can't find it there as for now, Jenny. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Circa-1890-Rare-H-Boyd-Concertina-with-case-for-sale-/191608174639?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c9cbcb82f
  2. I have a 1959 Wheatstone 1E with walnut ends and steel reeds listed here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/C-Wheatstone-Co-Model-1E-48-Key-Treble-English-Concertina-w-Case-1959-VGC-/131529263145
  3. Not much useful information either here or in the eBay listing.
  4. Wheatstone absolutely used concertina reeds during this period. These are the reed pans of my 1959 Model 2E treble, with aluminum shoes:
  5. Thanks, I saw that. Fortunately, I have been able to secure a line of credit to cover my expenses so the concertinas are no longer for sale at this time.
  6. Greetings, squeezers! I am selling both of my English system concertinas in order to help fund my business startup. They are both listed on eBay: Lachenal - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lachenal-New-Model-56-key-Extended-Treble-Concertina-w-Case-circa-1892-VGC-/141665565548?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT Wheatstone - http://www.ebay.com/itm/C-Wheatstone-Co-Model-1E-48-Key-Treble-English-Concertina-w-Case-1959-VGC-/141665565551?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT I would prefer to sell them here, I will make a site donation as is customary should they do so. Please ask any questions you may have about the instruments. Thanks, Marc

  8. Here's an excellent starting point for learning about ABC notation: http://abcnotation.com
  9. Just checked my email archive, it's squeeze "at" buttonbox.com.
  10. The Button Box is a dealer, why not shoot Doug a line?
  11. If you are willing to take your time doing the layout and setup work, the tapered dovetail slots in a reed pan can be easily produced with a common router and a few homemade jigs. In fact, if all of the reed shoe sizes use the same degree of taper, you will only need one jig and would adjust length and width of each slot by placing it closer or further from the center hole of the pan.
  12. I think that you may be missing a digit, since Wheatstone didn't move to West Street until 1905. Have a read here: http://www.concertina.com/pricelists/wheatstone-english/index.htm
  13. Just a bit of classical notation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ornament_(music)#Turn
