  1. "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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Are there any concertina courses (a weekend or longer) held in Europe/US during the summer?
  5. All good ideas. What I was thinking was a general collection thread so people know what books are out there. :-)
  6. Tutor books and general fact books about concertinas.
  7. Is there a book thread in the forum? If not I can start one :-)
  8. 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?
  9. There is some slight buzzing with one or two notes of my Rochelle, is this something that I can adjust myself or..?
  10. 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..
