  1. Just an observation... I have two George Jones concertinas and a couple of Lachenals and have just discovered, (from Andrew Norman) that George Jones "accidental/incidental" (outer) rows had/have a slightly different layout to the standard Lachenal or Jeffries layout ie: Left hand: Jones (and early Lachenals) used E push/G# pull on the lowest button, later everyone went to E/F as the lowest button Right Hand: Jones used D#/C#push for 1A, G/G#push, Bb/c# push, the f/a (like the highest Lachenal button) then a high d#/and very high c on the push (Credit to Andrew Norman for this info as he is currently restoring my third George Jones (although keep an eye out as I will be selling at least one of them shortly to pay for the current restoration :) ) So a reflection on the button pattern might shed some light on whether it is a Jones?

  2. Did anyone ever get round to creating and publishing a concertina emjoi??
  3. https://www.cacornish.co.uk/musical-instruments/ does the whole range of concertina leather bits..... Gerry
  4. I recently bought a few trial pieces from here...... Thank you for your enquiry. We manufacture the leather bindings mentioned but in a softee hide leather not goatskin. If you would like to let me know the sizes required I can advise the cost. We either split thin at .2mm across the whole width or centre split to .6/.7mm with both edges bevelled. Please send your address and I can send samples. I look forward to your reply. Kind Regards Lynda Lynda Cornish C. A.

  5. I recently purchased Jason O'Rourke's excellent CD " The Northern Concertina". I am completely blown away by the Mazurka "L'Aguilette". Does anyone have the music or ABC they can share..... It would make this "old man" very happy!
  6. a "G" version is available here: (5th version of the collection) https://thesession.org/tunes/18
  7. Get Dave Elliot's Concertina Maintenance manual as a starter!
  8. I'm certainly NOT a teacher or instructor , just an enthusiastic anglo learner like yourself (using ABC), but I'm in Cumbernauld so if you fancy meeting up to see if we can learn a few tunes from each other... 😀
  9. Good (wo?) man! I've ordered the Nervous man.... one down... one to go! Thanks! Gerry
  10. Hi Wolf what size/model of Pelican Case did you order??
  11. Too right Peter I know its a great CD but that has to be a world record!!! I'll happily buy a second hand copy if that's all that is available..... anyone want to part with their copy?
  12. Hi, I'm trying to track down a UK outlet for two Mícheál Ó Raghallaigh CDs, namely "The Nervous Man"(2002) & "Inside Out" (2008) Any clues anyone?? Ta! Gerry S
  13. I used to own a PA company. The Shure 57 is a "go to" general purpose mic for acoustic instruments usually in conjunction with a DI on the instrument for live PA reinforcement. If you are recording it might be better to consider a condenser mic designed specifically for recording/studio as these have become more affordable of late. https://www.musicmatter.co.uk/news/best-studio-microphones-under-150
