  1. It is a Jones, with a lot of standard maker features.
  2. I think the strongest bellows shape is square, withe the weakest being the closest to circular. Hexagonal and octagonal are fine for the 6 8 sided models in use today. Mike
  3. The Lachenal has raised metal ends with what I think may be erinoid buttons,it seems to kike me as I have sold it several times and ended up getting it back in part ex for a more expensive upgrade, no one here is interested it the price quoted then I will put in to a local auction and see if anyone goes for it. Regards. Mike Everything that could be changed internally has been done in recent years , I am a crane duet player so McCanns are one of life's mysteries tome.
  4. Hello, The Excelsior is now with a new owner so is off the list. The Eb Alto is still here if you want to come and try just let me know when you want to come. Regards. Mike It is quite ok to give ma a ring on 01728 768128
