  1. A very nice comment on "The Concertina Diaires" tutor (Heather Greer). A buyer, who is from Ireland but now living in C&E Europe, while waiting for his copy of the book to arrive, worked his way through the sample pages from the book that are up on our website, www.IrishTunebook.com. "I have read your sample pages [on your website], and from these alone I have learned more, and more quickly, than all the other books that I have on this subject put together. Please feel free to use this comment in your advertisments." Colin A. Just thought I'd pass that nice comment along. Oh,
  2. Interesting discussion, which I've just come across. When I started playing (Irish trad on Anglo) concertina, it seemed to me that learning scales would be a good idea. But it didn't offer a lot of help to me in learning the best way of playing an actual tune, while at the same time both managing bellows and, importantly, avoiding chopping (using the same finger for two consecutive notes). The difficulty is, as everyone knows, that with the Anglo there's an almost infinite number of (well, quite a few) combinations of buttons and pushes and pulls that can be used to play a given scale.
  3. EDGLEY 'HERITAGE' CONCERTINA FOR SALE. A 'Heritage' concertina for sale (located in Ireland). As Frank Edgley writes on his website of these instruments: "These are our top-of-the-line concertinas. These concertinas are made in the traditional way, with separate hardwood reedpans. The reeds are top quality traditional concertina reeds with steel tongues and brass reed shoes and are very similar to the reeds used by Wheatstone in the late 1800s and early 1900s ---the Golden Age of Concertinas. This concertina has ebony ends with stainless steel end plates. As you'll see in the photos, I custom
  4. Sorry...don't know how to remove this posting, but just to say that the Suttner I was advertising has been sold.
  5. HI there I'm offering a 31-button Suttner C/G A2 model, Jeffries tuned concertina for sale. It has polished ebony ends, seven bellows folds, and very pretty gilt bellows papers. Sice it has been played, it's nice and loose; but it hasn't been played very much and is in 'as new' condition. The 31st button is a C drone (it comes along with a low D reed and brass reed plate should anyone want that). I have a genuine reason for selling it. I and it are based in the west of Ireland, but it can be sent anywhere in the world at little cost. It happens to be the concertina featured on the fro
  6. Hello there I have a Suttner A2 model, seven-bellows, Jeffries-tuned 31-button (the 31st button is the C drone which Juergen supplies as standard on the A2) C/G with polished ebony ends and very pretty gilt bellows papers. In Connemara, Ireland. If you'd like to mail me about it, here's my address: heather.cleggan@gmail.com . It's the concertina featured on the front cover of the tutor "The Concertina Diaries", and since that's the only photo I have currently, I'm attaching that to this message. If you mail me privately, I can quickly take further photos of it and send them to you
