  1. I thought that I´d seen two and W. Wakker just recently sold them. Can´t remember the price... Edeophones Christian
  2. Oh, I like this idea. Has anyone tried it actually? Christian I'd guessed as much - but the potential for one-on-ones, lessons etc must be pretty good.
  3. ... and some information you can get right here Christian
  4. Hello, maybe you should post it a bit further up under "Buy and sell" or the part for general questions. by the way, I wouldn´t buy it. Christian
  5. Hello Marien, the Mayfair wasn´t listed but can be viewed here It´s an English. Greetings Christian Hi Peter, I am puzzled, is the C/G a Mayfair? Marien
  6. very nice indeed and as I can see (and if you entered it correctly) you´ve got something to celebrate today :-) Congrats! Christian
  7. Hello John, just a little reminder: when you are still interested in a metal-ended treble as exchange with a bit of cash on top, I am still there Christian
  8. Well, congratulations! And I am looking forward to get some information how you get on with it! Have fun with it! Christian
  9. Hello guys, after I´ve read all these posts I am still not getting the point, apparently. Where is the problem playing a wind based instrument softly? Christian
  10. Morning, I got my membership number on a little plastic card which was sent to me together with other stuff. Greetings Christian
  11. Hello Peter and Dave, thanks for the explanation. Always remembered it differently but thankful about the info Have a nice day Christian
  12. Hello Pete, nicely played as usual :-) Just a matter of interest: Old Palace Clog Morris - hm, but as far as I know it´s not really morris dancing. It looks like the north western type of clog dancing or am I wrong? I used to know a clog team in Essex and they did more or less the same type of dancing insisting it´s not morris. Grettings from Germany Christian
  13. Hello guys, although not having tryied this on the concertina, on the accordion you can do this (better on the deep notes) by making a strong crescendo and simultaneously decreasing the button pressure so that less air with bigger force rushes in (or out). Christian
  14. Oh, I´d love tog get some information about the picture attached inside the box...
  15. Well, more or less. I don´t know how developed it is at the moment but I used frequently. It´s got it´s advantages: good printing quality (we used it as well for the orchestra I played in) and many different options you mentioned. Last time I used it I hated it´s quite complex way of getting the information needed. Yes, you can have different systems, transpose them into anything you want, add song texts and so on but for me it was an awful lot of work to get a proper result. I once bought a licence for it and prolonged that as well but I think it´s not one of the cheapest to use... Greetings Christian
  16. Why would one need 11 folds??? With an instrument like this one? Really strange...
  17. Wow! Does it mean you have to know what you want and write to them? It's not user friendly at best. My experience shows me that out of every 5 pieces I find, I am interested to learn some 1 or 2, and out of 5 of those I keep one, and out of those kept, only a few naturally stick. So how do I use the library then? Well, I don´t know for sure. Since I have filled out the application form I haven´t heard anything from them. And there seems to be no sort of download-area for music kept in the library - or something like a member access. Isn´t one of the guys posting here a member of the ICA? Chis? Christian
  18. Thanks, great. I just paid my membership due, but don't see how it registered me. I also can't see any way to actually download the music from the site. I can't even open mp3 of the tunes. Can anybody educate me on how to use it? Thanks..................(snip)........... Did this work out? I thought of this post and then got busy and forgot... I haven't gone to the site yet to see recent changes. I didn't join via the website, back a few years... I think I used snail mail. Hello, good question which I had as well. I can´t see at the moment any progress regarding how the registration took place or how you actually get information as well as music. I went through the site and found this: Members of the ICA have access to the library either through the web site or by contacting the librarian directly. At the present time the library will make available to members, on request, copies of music which is free of copyright. The originals, many of which are irreplaceable, are carefully retained in the music archive. A small charge will be made to cover the cost of copying the music and postage. Where music is in print, and readily available elsewhere, we should be able to direct you to a source. Doesn´t this mean, you write to them and they send it to you? Christian
  19. Well, you´ll never get rich that way but maybe a little bit happier! Congratulations to this beautiful instrument - I am sure it´s going to be a pleasure to play maybe you can drop a little note... Oh, a tenor-treble must be nice, I´d love to have some deeper notes too... Greetings Christian
  20. I reported as well. Christian
  21. Hello, I had times when I didn´t play the concertina that regularly and at the moment I am using one out of two definitively more than the other. I have always used these pauses to give one instrument away to someone who actually plays it: a beginner or someone who simply needed one. And never made any bad experiences with that. Christian
  22. Hello, I had as well the ends of my concertina recently replated and I am glad I´ve done that. I took it to the C.Connection when it was still in the Netherlands and as mentioned before I would only take it to someone who knows exactly what he´s doing - like a bit of a polish before and after as well as the right bath. Taking it simply to a jewlery to have it done might not be what you want. Christian
