  1. DDF, where was that last image taken? Wow
  2. Jackly/helmbelly (you should use only one) I would choose the CC over Trinity College any day.
  3. Jody, your second juxtaposition perfectly explains "concertina face".
  4. This pdf shows all the Crane layouts. Saguaro's Crane should match. Remember, YMMV. http://www.concertina.com/crane-duet/Wilton-Bulstrode-Crane-Tutor.pdf
  5. Which sales site was that? Curiosity hasn't Hurt this cat - yet!
  6. I have one just like, I believe it is a D40, as there are 40 reeds. I can't make anything but noise either!
  7. Serial number 36795 dates to March 25, 1964. Above left is listed New York, could this have been a Matusewich instrument?
  8. Given the size of the ears, I would say that elephant is an African elephant, from the Bronze Age.
  9. Looks to be a Maccan, and if memory serves, the English Made crossed by Trade Mark makes it a Lachenal Maccan. Someone will correct my error, be there any.
  10. Maybe you should cover your instrument with rice? Kidding.
  11. Please don't forget Gary Coover's playing for all his books on Youtube.
  12. Search for Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne, Leveret, Dapper Delight, and the ones others recommend.
  13. That sounds like the concertina button Vibrandoneon.
  14. I was just watching Pee Wee's Big Adventure on tv (there's nothing on). Pee Wee uses the American version.
  15. Oh Simon, you've led a sheltered life. Search for "Misery" on a streaming device. She's a really good actress, when given a chance.
  16. It is an inexpensive "concertina-like-object". The reeds are arranged like an accordion. They are placed on blocks as opposed to horizontally on the sound board. I have one like it and the biggest weakness is the way the buttons are attached to the levers. Better quality instruments have buttons with holes that the levers go through. Your concertina (and mine) have rubber tubing under the plastic buttons that the levers pass through. When the tubing dries out, problems occur. But they are playable, learn how to play it!
  17. I agree, mostly, with Clive Thorne. An Anglo is an Anglo because of its button layout. 20/30/40 buttons in that layout, with two notes per, defines Anglo. The same applies to EC and the various Duets. It's the layout that determines the system.
  18. I just read your post concerning concertina #10. Whoa! Beautiful work, both instrument and box.
  19. That concertina has been on ebay for months. Seems even those who don't know about concertinas won't pay that price.
  20. I used to love Ian Dury's music. Alas, I don't think he played a concertina.
