  1. Hey Frank, Is that one of your heritage instruments in the video? It sounds great.
  2. Can be downloaded at http://clare.fm/music/ClareFM%20trad%20archive I'm going to have a listen now, I've been looking forward to his current project.
  3. I've emailed, but heard nothing back.Anyone get a reply?
  4. I was the original owner of this concertina, and I can vouch that it is a wonderful instrument.
  5. Concertina is sold, and a donation to CNet is my next stop. Glad its staying in Canada too!
  6. Price adjusted, after this it will hit fleabay or I'll keep it.
  7. Price reduced, it would be quite reasonable to ship this instrument to the UK, and I could ship it in a Pelican case for the utmost of safety.
  8. Ha ha thanks, they weren't files I intended to share, but I'm here at work and they were on my phone already.
  9. I have to sell this concertina to help with a new instrument I have coming soon. 112680, approx 1890, rosewood ends, bone buttons, 20 key C/G. It was restored by Chris Algar in 2005. This instrument is very responsive and plays great. The tuning is good; new pads; bellows are in excellent shape. It is the same instrument as previously sold here: http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=11352 I've been playing it for over a year, and I've found it to be a great instrument between a starter and a high end instrument, and I vastly prefer its sound to the hybrid which I previously had (and traded partially for this instrument). I play Irish music, and had no trouble finding many tunes which work fine on the 20 button. If I hadn't joined a waiting list for a top-end instrument before I got a hold of this one, I'd likely just keep it. https://soundcloud.com/user774092271/lachenal-20-button-c-g https://soundcloud.com/user774092271/lachenal-20-key-c-g-sample-2 https://soundcloud.com/user774092271/lachenal-20-button-c-g-sample Price reduced to $800 (NOW SOLD) US Dollars and I will include a Pelican/Storm case. I'm happy to ship overseas if buyer covers cost of shipping, I can ship FedEx Air right out of Thunder Bay airport. Located in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
  10. That should help potential buyers. If you were nearby I'd consider it, but I'd have to play such an instrument before committing. You should have no trouble selling it in Ireland, be sure to go to Custy's in Ennis.
  11. Sold, with donation to C.Net Money from the sale is going to Mr. Carroll for a deposit!
  12. $250 with the soft case it came with $300 with a hard case
  13. Still for sale, dropping the price to $275CDN or $325 with a hardshell case similar to a pelican (though not quite a pelican). The case is too big for my Edgley but would fit the Rochelle perfectly. It's watertight and indestructable. PM me on this site, but be sure not to email through the site as it goes to an old email which I don't have anymore. Or just respond in the thread and I'll get back to you. Patrick
  14. I'm also willing to take offers, it should be played and not languishing in its case.
  15. I have a like-new Rochelle anglo (C/G wheatstone) that I played for a few months while waiting for my Edgley. It's nicely played in and in pristine condition. Includes the case and I'll throw in the Mad for Trad concertina tutorial CD rom if you want. $300 dollars plus shipping, delivery is possible between Halifax and Ontario as I'll be driving home at Christmas. After shipping and duties this cost close to $450 so if you're in Canada this is a good chance to save some dough! Pm Me! Brandon
  16. After going through a concertina-shaped object and a rather playable and nice Rochelle, I finally bit the bullet and ordered an Edgley concertina after meeting him at the Chris Langan Weekend in Toronto and being thoroughly impressed with his instruments. I didn't think I could afford it at the time, but I knew if I kept putting it off due to that I'd never end up getting one, so I put in my order and saved all I could over the 6 month wait. It arrived just recently, right as I'd squirreled away the last few hundred bucks. To say I'm quite pleased with it is an understatement. The tone is extremely sweet, and the button action is incredibly quick. I've played many of the hybrids, as well as many high-end concertinas and the action on this one is among the best I've tried. I've learned as many tunes on it in the few weeks that I've had it as I did on the Rochelle in two years. Good job Frank!
  17. Ive heard at least two concertina players with very expensive concertinas who could hardly play them, and I know several much better players who are still playing hybrids because they suit them just fine. I notice the same thing on many instruments, the people with the most expensive, best instruments are rarely the best players. Perhaps a 3 million dollar strad is a different story.
  18. David, you met a young fellow at the Midwest Fleadh who approaches a level of virtuosity already and is only 19. Asher Perkins, who placed first in the concertina competition, as well as button accordion. I know him very well, and while he isn't very flashy or showy for the most part, he is the only concertina player I've ever met who can transpose on the fly, play chromatically and all that jazzy stuff. But he doesn't, because it doesn't sound all that good, and he is much more interested in phrasing and articulation than being a virtuoso. Simply because he started playing at a very young age, and developed his own fingering system based on logic and not necessarily by adopting the fingering of another player. His bellows control is extremely sensitive, and is becoming more so every time I see him. So, there are good players out there, they just aren't all famous.
  19. In Ireland it's mostly the jeffries layout that's wanted, with C# on the outer row, right hand, both on push and on pull, the wheatstone layout doesn´t have that... For a beginner it really doesn't matter, and is easy to adapt to later. Some of the best Irish players prefer the Wheatstone layout. I do believe Bob Tedrow has Rochelles in Jeffries tuning for a little bit extra though.
  20. Fiddle and concertina is my favourite combo, seconded by button accordion and concertina, or fiddle and button accordion. I I guess I'm lucky to play concertina and fiddle, and my girlfriend plays the box! Can't argue with or this What I particularly like is the blending of the melody, but the subtle differences in phrasing and articulation (ornamentation) of the melody between the two instruments.
  21. correct,youalso have to listen to yoursound and learn finger attack and bellows control. but compared to the fiddle the intonation is easy Playing both fiddle and concertina is interesting to say the least. The fiddle is difficult to begin on, as intonation is tricky to learn and the first while is rough going. However once you've gotten to a certain point on the fiddle it seems to get easy. Intonation doesn't take much thought and there is only one possibility for note layout. It becomes all about style after that. On the other hand, I found the concertina easy to learn the first few tunes on, but digging deeper and learning more tunes, it really doesn't get a whole lot easier. Completely different learning curve. I enjoy the puzzle of learning tunes on the concertina, but I can be much more expressive on the fiddle. For now anyways.
  22. Ah Ena is lovely to have around here in the Toronto area. Her music is a perfect representation of her personality, too.
