Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Hello Joey, I wonder if you’ve bought it about ten years later as it seems to have been produced 1970 🤔
  2. Never had any difficulties. Taking the plane from London today I realised how important it is to give some information to the security. He actually thanked me giving him some information in advance saying it saves them time and worries
  3. Hello Geoff, apart from cosmetic reasons I prefer the non-sticky version as well. My own sweat shouldn’t be the reason as it’s never occurred on my other Instruments. I hope it’s going to stay relatively clean now, if you zoom into the photos now the dark spots that you seen on each button are apparently a reflection of me holding the phone. I’ll attach a photo so you can see how they looked before the treatment. Hope to find sth now to give the ends back a bit of a shine.
  4. Yes, it’s really nice and it’s got such a mellow tone…
  5. It was actually car-polish. it´s been recommended to me to clean silver and other metals and worked very well on the buttons
  6. No, it’s just for the look of it, the buttons were almost completely dark
  7. What else is there to do on a Saturday morning… the difference doesn’t come through on the photos, inner two rows are clean now, the other side done completely
  8. Just curious: in the ledgers you’ll find both Tortoiseshell and Shell, sometimes on the same page. just two words for the same material or is there actually a difference? 🤔 Christian
  9. I thought I’d give it a try and post something here… the second tune is one of Simon Thoumire´s if I remember correctly
  10. Hello, visiting Jürgen Suttner‘s workshop is ever so fascinating! Walking through it you see instruments at different stages of the making, starting with a pile of wood and metal down to almost finished instruments. greetings from Münster as well Christian
  11. Hello, I’ve already contacted your dad and packed one but still hesitating as I haven’t understood the new regulations yet... Christian
  12. I’ve recently acquired an instrument and a tobacco/ cigarette smell is definitely noticeable. It’s getting a lot better by leaving it outside of it’s case and changing the case. I had a spare one as it’s previous one had the same smell. but it’ll take time
  13. Oh, I’m sure you’re going to enjoy playing your new instrument, have fun!
  14. Hello Gail, yes, it sometimes happens with the very high or very low notes. As you said, you’ve got to be creative. Some play better on the pull or push, if the notation allows it you could try to push that button earlier down as you’d normally do. best wishes
