    Building Course?

    Really nice little documentary :-)

    Building Course?

    "But maybe owlgal is thinking of a sort of combination, such as a weekend (or week, or series of evenings, or...) where several individuals each build their own instruments from supplied parts/kits under the watchful eye and direction of an "instructor"? I believe there's an annual event in England for doing just that with melodeons, but I haven't yet heard of one for concertinas." That's exactly what I mean :-) I also just received the repair manual book which will be interesting reading.
  3. Has there ever been a building course or thoughts of one? I've look through Bob Tedrows great photo series http://hmi.homewood.net/twitterzephyr/ on how to build one so I know it's fairly complicated.

    Summer Courses?

    Thanks all, I like taking a week off in May-July to go do something and it's nice to know that there are some concertina alternatives.

    Summer Courses?

    Are there any concertina courses (a weekend or longer) held in Europe/US during the summer?

    Book Thread?

    All good ideas. What I was thinking was a general collection thread so people know what books are out there. :-)

    Book Thread?

    Is there a book thread in the forum? If not I can start one :-)

    Next Concertina?

    The straps just seemed to make it easier to pull the concertina out of a tight case. The Rochelle always stretches bit but maybe that's okay?
  12. Are there any female musicians?
  13. There is some slight buzzing with one or two notes of my Rochelle, is this something that I can adjust myself or..?

    Next Concertina?

    Well, I received my Rochelle last week and wow! what a difference! The buttons handle more smoothly (and are smaller), the bellow is SO much easier to draw. The only thing I'm missing are the snap-on side-straps that my other concertina has but you can't get everything..
