Hi everyone, I'm John a new member.
I've always played Harmonica and two years ago I bought a second-hand Gremlin Anglo.
Of late, It's seem's a bit limited, so two months ago I bought a Wheatstone English, thinking that I'd get some of my money back if it didn't work out.
Well, It didn't. So I would like to swap it for a decent Anglo (cash either way).
It's a 56 Button Wheatstone (extended treble?). It;s six-sided and meassures 7 1/4" point-to-point. Steel rivited reeds, rosewood ends, five-fold black bellows. Silver buttons, finger and strap-holders (engraved Wheatstone).
I've had a reed replaced and was told 22218 was on the frame and there were three small patches inside the bellows, which are air-tight.
It has a loud, sweet sound and is in concert pitch (I compared it to my Gremlin). O'h, it's ex-Sally Army as thier lable is inside the original leather box.
If there's any interest, I will open her up and get my son to take some pics. Inspection most welcome, I live in London.
