  1. thanks for this advice. I find the D# much too rare to keep on the 1A. As this is in Jeffries tuning I have D# on the 2A pull.
  2. yes, sorry down a tone. If it doesn’t work I will contact peter. I assume I can unscrew the ‘ block’ and just send it to him though I might have to seal it up again on the frame if it’s not a perfect fit (save on postage). Are you in Melb? thanks
  3. Hello, I‘m a bit hopeless with knowing where to solder to bring the reed up a tone so it is easier for Irish stuff. at the tip? Along the reed? Yes, I have a tuner. Thanks Larry
  4. Quite by accident, I came across the attached cartoon, from Mr Punch's History of Modern England, vol 2 ( 1857-1874) p. 146. Punch was a now defunct UK humour magazine, a staple of the middle class - 1841-2002 . See also https://archive.org/details/mrpunchshistoryo02gravuoft/page/146/mode/2up. Perhaps it has been picked up in one of the histories. A quick search on google also located another, as below. I am sure there are more. BTW, Warren Fahey-some of you probably know of him as cartoons and photos, mostly from Australia, http://www.warrenfahey.com.au/enter-the-collection/the-collection-m-z/musical-instruments-in-the-australian-tradition/concertina-photography-cartoon-gallery/
  5. Noel Hill and Tony McMahon played 'the Old Concertina Reel on I gCnoc Na Graí . It's a great tune. But I've only been able to find music online for it in the key of D. Does anyone have it in G? or C -- I'm not great at music theory or transposition. I assume Noel Hill was playing a D/G concertina on the recording. Or am I making some error that I can't get my head around musically ie how to play it in G. Larry
  6. See, only one hand, but angels ca do this. Now I have to carefully ‘squeeze’ it into my luggage. Terrible joke, sorry.
  7. I bought a larger one for 8 eu. I sup t shipping would be very expensive if you ordered it from outside Italy - packing is an issue. And here are some small Stan and Ollies. I will take a photo of my angel in daylight.
  8. I will try, but they don’t like it. They want you to buy!!
  9. I am in Naples for language school. I think this has appeared before, but they are very cute, though the quality varies, and are mostly sold in one area of the historical area. There are also great statuettes of Stan and Ollie who are beloved.
  10. O dear. Go see your local doctor. My ears currently buzz with high pitch tinnitus after a very bad flu. I find that playing the sound of rain or waterfalls with earphones helps a lot. There are many bits of music on YouTube, and discussion. I am also seeking further help.
  11. Thanks, I had seen his name, but there is nothing like a personal recommendation!!
  12. Hi, one is in Perth, others are in NSW in the hills, there is an accordian guy somewhere. It is a bit country as you know. Hey, that's a good thought! But I'd have to play with solder...
