Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Wheatstone made a rather large MacCann Duet, here: http://www.concertinamuseum.com/CM00108.htm No dimensions given but I will check them next time I see Neil......
  2. I can confirm that they are not original!
  3. Sorry, I don't know for certain. As per earlier threads I believe the lower octaves may be destined for baritone or bass instrument projects....
  4. Now sold to a Cnetter, thanks and contribution to the site to be made
  5. I have just put these on ebay but if anyone from this forum is interested in them, please PM me. 119 reeds.
  6. I showed the action picture to Neil Wayne and he had never seen one like it either.....
  7. Jeffries Reed pans are usually parallel, Lachenal radial.....
  8. I make lots of these for my restoration work and they work well. The burnt edges may not look as pristine as a stamped version, but at least the central hole is consistently central and I can cut 100 in about 5 minutes.... And it only takes 10 minutes to cut new wooden ends, but they take a lot longer to draw than a leather bead!
  9. At the moment I'm helping Neil. His health is OK, but concentration is an issue..... I've pm'd the originator of this post to try and help out.....
  10. And now two of these coming up in a Dutch Auction: https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/Symphonetta-music-instrument-2004-c-A72478B8DA?utm_source=alerts&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=inv_kwalert&utm_term=2 https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/Symphonetta-music-instrument-2003-c-E8E45C4925?utm_source=alerts&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=inv_kwalert&utm_term=2
  11. From Dowright's previously quoted figures, this would date to around 1877
