Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Gary - is your Edgley still available? I’d be interested if it is.
  2. Just to say that this is still available and that I am open to sensible offers :)
  3. Thank you Christine - I will own another in time I'm sure - just need to get the finances sorted first
  4. The case is made by a chap in England called Simon Brock. You can view his stuff here - https://leatherforfolkies.co.uk/product-category/music/
  5. Just to give you an update, Simon has now made a fitted foot for the case which precisely fits the concertina and keeps the bellows nice and compressed now Thanks for the advice, on this - I am really really happy now!
  6. wayman - discourse is what moves us forward without your (and others) comments on the bellows, I would have been happily ignorant, thinking that the case was perfect, then in 20 years time, I would need new bellows as I hadn't been storing them properly compressed. I appreciate any comments.
  7. Thanks for all the feedback I really do appreciate it. Simon (the maker) actually contacted me after reading this thread and has come up with a plan to fully block the case so that these issues go away. That's the beauty of something handmade I guess - it can be updated easily by the person who made it! With regards to rigidity - the case is actually very stable as it uses thick leather and a very modern high density foam in combination. There is of course more give than plywood - but not enough to worry about. Buckle opening time? For me that is a bonus as it means my kids can't open it! That said Simon offers other fast close locks too - I requested buckles as I like the look of them
  8. It’s actually custom made to perfectly fit so no need for blocking The photo of the instrument in the case shows otherwise ... unless that's a photograph before the blocks were put in? The bellows are open, loose, and uneven. A properly-fit blocked case means the bellows are snugly closed, compressed, and even. Well I’m happy and it is snug. Perhaps some blocks for the back wouldn’t be a bad idea will order some and fit them myself

  10. I am an indoor/fair weather player so that doesn't bother me too much, but if I were to be a travelling concertina player, that would certainly be a consideration!
  11. You make a valid point, but there is a suede wrap inside that covers the concertina. I could have opted for a fully closed lid, but my budget maxed out!
  12. So after some months of waiting, my new case has arrived for my Wheatstone. I must say, the case is a really lovely thing, so I thought I would share photos. I purchased from Simon Brock, founder of http://leatherforfolkies.co.ukand can highly recommend him. The price was reasonable and everything is made by hand (even hand stitched) and Simon has a range of other case types available - even a hexagonal case should that take your fancy
  13. Proud to have been first to pledge Really looking forward to it
  14. I’ve followed much of your journey here Alex and I am so impressed it looks amazing. I can’t wait for instruments 2,3 and 4 now
