  3. Put on a set of headphones for this, it is spine tingling ........ absolutely fabulous !
  4. We have just received a Lachenal English Tutor, S/No 27054, when we opened it up we were surprised to find it had wooden baffles, about 1/8 " thick, stamped with the serial number in the same stamp font as the body, so it must have been a factory fit ........... has anyone seen this before ?
  5. http://Http/www.concertinashop.com.auI don't know why the link is not Unfortunately computer technology doesn't like me , perhaps if I read the instructions first ????
  6. I don't know why the link is not working Www.concertinashop.com.au . Unfortunately computer technology doesn't like me !
  7. Patrick "PJ" Cullen and I have a new web site listing concertinas we have for sale in Australia www.concertinashop.com.au We buy and sell concertinas, overseas shipping is available. PJ is well known having over 20 years experience trading concertinas known on Cnet as djangojessie
  8. The pitch shift function allowed me to play along on a C&F melodeon with Mally's GD tutor CD, very handy !
  9. There is a good app (free) Amazing Slow Downer, you can slow down, speed up, loop and change the pitch.
  10. That looks like it Steve, I'm not sure who would distribute it in the U.S.
  11. There is a cardboard used widely in the printing and electrical industries called "Presspan" ; this board is pressed to a uniform thickness, it is very hard and stiff, it is used as a make-ready material in printing and for insulation in electric. It comes in 0.5, 0.7, and 1mm thickness; the 0.7 is 875 gsm. usually in 700mm x 1 mt. sheets, can be cut with a Stanley knife. This was a semi accidental discovery, before retiring I was in the printing industry; recently I was talking to local builder and repairer Richard Evans about a bellows restoration and he mentioned having difficulty in getting suitable cardboard, I had a couple of sheets of 0.7 presspan in my shed so I gave one to him, he commented that it was the best board he had seen for bellows and did I have any more ! A google search will show local distributers, it's available world wide.
  12. Nice .......but we won't let you in, the borders are closed !
  13. Has anyone seen one of these before ? It is branded Ebor 20 key moulded in Bakelite
  14. Quite right ......that was an "OOPS" typo, I should re-read before I press send ! I
  15. If all else fails thrre is a very good free phone app PANOTUNER, I have used it for tuning guitars and ukuleles, it displays the note being played ie. B# plus the frequency.
  16. Hand held accordion, https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/toowoomba-city/collectables/hand-held-accordion/1269217043?
  17. Hi, can anyone tell me if a catalogue of end plate designs used by the old makers exists that can be used as an aid to identification ?
  18. The Dinkie may have been fitted by Harold Mellor
  19. No hex bolt, it is a recess that has been pressed into the metal so it perfectly sit in place on top of the glass buttons. The "Dinkie" is a manufactured piece, not a home made modification, fitted so it locates perfectly on either button.
  20. Has anyone seen a "Dinkie" pictured on an Edeophone, it appears to be specially made to sit on top of the G & F buttons, the only thing I can think of is that it provides a drone. This is on a 56 button made about 1914
  21. Are there any members in the Adelaide, or closer to home in the Adelaide Hills ?
  22. I have been playing a button accordeon previously and recently purchased an old (made in Germany East) Stagi. anglo, it has been a starter but you certainly get what you pay for ! Concertinas are pretty hard to find in Australia, so I have no chance to go into a music store and try different instruments, concertinas rarely coming up for sale on the net., so I'm looking to import a good quality intermediate , such as a Clover, Minstrel, Swan etc. ????. I'm not only looking at new, I would be very pleased to find a pre-owned instrument. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
