Heavyweight Boxer (5/6)

  1. I don't know. Some of us (including the late Richard Morse) had a long and vehement discussion about the term back in 2007: .
  2. Sounds about right to me. I would add Marcus and Norman in the UK as early hybrid makers. And mention should also be made of the accordion-reeded May Fair concertinas made by Wheatstone in the 1950s which were significantly better than the accordion-reeded ones from Germany and Italy.
  3. Concertina Connection will also accept trade-ins of Rochelles they did not directly sell. You can contact them for details.
  4. I wrote to Bob yesterday to ask about this. His reply: "Hello Daniel, at the moment, I am not building. I am taking maintenance gigs on my previous builds and am a dealer for Concertina Connection instruments. I may return to building in the future. Do with me what you will. I am still here." Since there are several other makers on the list who are not currently taking orders, I will leave Bob's listing as it is now.
  5. Updated to add Concertina Connection's fairly new Rochelle 2 to the Intermediate/Mid-range category. I put it in that category because it has flat-mounted reeds.
  6. From the website of a friend of mine, the songwriter and English concertina player Carol Denney: http://www.caroldenney.com/concerti.htm . Here's Carol playing and singing one of her songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6dmtEjc51Q .
  7. Thanks, Peter! Baritone anglo video is actually at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGoNYfhpp8M .
  8. I believe the recording is at https://concertina.org/2020/07/06/harry-minting-at-the-ica-bloomsbury-1987/ - but it's in the members-only part of the ICA website.
  9. Recordings by another South African player Morgan O'Kennedy were also added! http://www.concertinas.org.uk/DuetAudio.htm
  10. And now Barleycorn is selling one: https://concertina.co.uk/stock-selection/other-concertinas/very-rare-early-wheatstone-english-concertina-unrestored/
  11. I agree with Ken - but also see this on Wim's website: http://www.wakker-concertinas.com/B51.htm Daniel
  12. Full listing is at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333991137861 . Here's a pic:
  13. Alan Day has been trying to contact the French Crane concertina player Jean Mégly to ask Jean for permission to use some of his recordings on the Duet Recordings page http://www.concertinas.org.uk/DuetAudio.htm . (Alan has the recordings but he does not yet have Jean's ok to use them.) Alan is Jean's friend on Facebook, but Alan tells me that Jean hasn't posted on Facebook for quite some time and hasn't responded to Alan's Facebook messages. I asked Gilbert Carrère but he has not had contact with Jean for a number of years. If you might be able to help with this, please message me here on c.net. Daniel
  14. So I wound up owning this one, thanks to the generosity of the c.net member who was the original purchaser from eBay. The ends, action plates and action levers are all metal. I wasn't able to access the reeds. Photos are at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1DT8W9cTo3BbRONfq8fpZnPMl35Nv-JWN?usp=sharing .
