    Wheatsone Linota

    7" (78mm) I'm failing to understand this relationship expressed as the measurement "across from side to side on the end." 78mm is not 7 inches. It could be a typo, I guess, missing a leading 1, maybe. Maybe the ad is rife with typos, including the price.
  2. Now that was fun, Simon! You really elevated my mood, even had me laughing towards the end. Thanks!
  3. It's something other than a Crabb after you make all those changes. If it were mine, I'd sell it to someone who would appreciate it for what it is; someone like that will show up when you post it for sale.
  4. Click on the Help link at the bottom of the webpage then read the instruction about uploading attachments in the Posting section. Photos on the site help sell instruments. Size your pictures so they are less than a page width. Give that a try.
  5. What happens when you rotate that wooden bar in the center counterclockwise from its current 1 o'clock/7 o'clock position to the 3 o'clock/9 o'clock position?
  6. Well, John, it sure is possible. Watch how Simon Thoumire plays.
  7. Sure is an eclectic display. The next one on might be a recipe for cornbread.
  8. Here are a couple of links that may interest you, Pemmikan—Cicero and the Cafe.
  9. Here's a little something about that, Gerry.
  10. Here's a table that I used to familiarize myself with the most common Irish dance tune scales. I found this years ago at Slowplayers.org.
  11. Gene's dances seem well-known among UK contradance societies. For the contradance callers in the forum who understand dance figure lingo, here are some of them.
  12. If this is the concertina that was owned and played by the contradance caller in down Durham, NC, it's got a very good vibe, indeed!
  13. I'm getting the impression from reviews at her website of the album containing these tunes—especially the review written by Bob Walton of Folk Roots—that all the tunes on "Angels Candles", including the slides, were composed by her so their names really are "Hop", "Skip" and "Jump."
  14. I would like to play french music that is kind of jazzy. The particular music that I want to play comes from Disney's Ratatouille soundtrack. I am not sure wether they used an accordion or a concertina, but I like the look of the concertina better. That particular music you like from Ratatouille, Daniel, is played on a piano accordion by Frank Marocco.
  15. These festivals look like fun and also great opportunities for itinerant massage therapists, chiropractors, and surgeons specializing in shoulder work.
  16. Edit the ad to include photos, as Jim has observed. If you already have photos, upload them.You need to click the "More Reply Options" button to see the uploading function below the reply box. Check the size of each photo because you're only allotted around 2MB space. You may need to resize them. I've found 200KB and a width 4"–6" works well. Show each side as clearly as you can. Show a photo of the case if it has one. Describe the keyboard system. Is it Jeffries, Wheatstone or something else? Click here to find more information on posting.
  17. An accordion also has pads. They're fastened to its pallets.
  18. Suttner makes high-grade English concertinas. Scroll to the bottom of the page. Wakker makes high-grade English concertinas.
  19. Here is a skilled Irish tune player with plenty of internal rhythm playing his EC.
  20. Take a look at the note charts on this page, Sean.
  21. This appears to be the original eBay post. Its instrument had a different serial number.
