  1. Hello, I’m not quite sure what to advise you , but you sound like you would certainly find Dave Elliott’s concertina manual very useful. http://www.concertina-repair.org.uk/page11.html Dave does a workshop at the WCCP get togethers , always helpful and interesting. good luck on your Anglo journey!
  2. That is a great idea , as someone who struggles to keep up sight reading wise it’s a big help ! many thanks
  3. What a wonderful thing to do for the community, thanks!
  4. Well , there are some wonderful modern instruments out there , but at the end of the day there is still nothing to beat a well set up Jeffries. (Just my 5 eggs )
  5. Thanks for posting this video, these tunes are very well played indeed!
  6. I keep My Lachenal anglo on my boat in the summertime , it lives in a Peli case and I’m careful about making sure the atmosphere is reasonably dry when I’m playing. Been doing this for a few years without any noticeable detriment. I would say the boat is fairly “airy” and almost never feels damp . Hope that helps .
  7. Well , the further down the list I go the more amazing the tunes become , so good to hear ITM embraced by young and old alike ! Thanks again
  8. Thanks a million for posting these ! Im really enjoying this music , best of all I’m only half way through the list . so good to hear older versions of these wonderful tunes!
  9. I would add; if you decide to go down the surgery route, do your research and go to the team that are most recommend in your area. im sure it’s a different deal but thought I would share: I am currently engaged in treatment for Dupuytren’s contraction on my left hand , which has pulled my pinky and ring finger in by around 30 degrees it has slowed me down, but on the plus side it’s given me a good excuse to work out tunes on the right !
  10. That’s amazingly good information! Thanks to all . the instrument will get a tune up and some pads , should be good for a few years yet !
  11. Steve Dickinson At Wheatstone might have a badge
  12. Thanks for your help everyone, anyone have any idea of the approximate date of the serial number ?
