I am curious about the Edeophone Anglos.
Would you mind sharing with me what yours was like. I know they must be very pretty. How was the sound and playability?
It wasn't mine, but belonged to an Irish musician I was visiting in Rochester; NY. That was something like 40 years ago. I believe he passed it on to another Rochester musician, but I don't recall the details.
I believe it was one of a trio of instruments, all 12-sided, 40-button, D/A anglos made by Wheatstone, made for a trio of clowns in Cincinnati, Ohio. They're documented elsewhere, maybe even in an old concertina.net Topic. I'll see if I can find links. I believe Grey Larsen has one of the others.
Never mind "pretty". I recall that the action and response were excellent, and it was the loudest concertina I've ever encountered.
