  1. Hi,

     not sure if you’d be interested. But I have an ac Norman GC posted. Looking to trade for an English or possibly a McCann.


    If this might be of interest let me me know




  2. Selling or possibly trading.. AC Norman. 30 button anglo. metal ends. accordion reeds Fast! loud, plays great. Sounds great. asking $2000. In Boston area. Prefer ftf if possible. Posted a few places. If it sells through here appropriate donation will be made. trade for an English or a duet? sean.casler@gmail.com .
  3. Is it that the New Model such a known commodity? Or are the later 50s/ 60s Wheatstones just really not thought that well of? Or, maybe a well known vs a less well known commodity? have to say that I am very glad I listened to the wisdom of the crowd here on the 22. It really is an immense step up over the older lesser model Lachenal I had.
  4. Wow all three responses so far are Lachenal. I was not expecting that.
  5. Ok here is the scenario.... I have a Wheatstone 22.. it is awesome. I can not begin to do it justice. But putting a lot of time and effort in. I am trying to trade/ sell my ac Norman as I have come to realize I just can note make sense of the push pull different notes and the EC is clicking with me. The Wheatstone is Everything you could want. It is beautiful, fast, loud, cuts through... but.. it is LOUD. So... to try to ensure some matter of “domestic tranquility” at those appropriate and or inappropriate times. I am considering a back up. Something for when LOUD and cutting through are not the desired traits. so .. looking for something that still has that fast action and fast response. But just not that loud. Stick with Wheatstone? Expand the horizons into others? BB had a 3E that is pretty nice. the New model and Excelsior at BB were impressive. And I can’t seem to get Greg J’s Homewood TT out of my head either. is there a strong recommendation from the knowledgeable people here? And as a side note.. I picked up a 55b new model crane that is pretty darn impressive. Great tone. But just not Near as fast as the 22.
  6. Bumping thread... casting again.. fishing for a trade! this Norman is sweet! fast! Loud! i just don’t seem to have the brain capacity to figure out a different note on the push and pull! my lack of intelligence is your opportunity!
  7. I am going to go with... RUSSIANS! conspiracy theory 1. The reds infiltrated Jeffries.. conspiracy theory 2 they were commies or red sympathizers?
  8. I see it and I think it would be just the thing to un stuck a toilet..
  9. My Anglo is a Homewood/ AC Norman.. it is really a nice player..
  10. David. I don’t think we know where Yiddish is from.. but for reference.. I was at BB not too long ago, he fixed an issue with my Wheatstone. He had several really nice ECs there. I REALLY liked the 3E and the New model he had there. if I can sell my Norman Anglo, I may pick one up as a back up wood ended EC..
  11. The standard, in my estimation, is a 48 button treble. i’d start there and see where it takes you. or as an accomplished accordion player. And are already used to it. If you are looking to do chords on the left and melody with the right, maybe a duet?
  12. You will probably need to narrow down Anglo, English or duet before you can get any sort of buying suggestions. all systems have their strengths and draw backs.concertina connections are a very good starting point for any one of these.
  13. It looks like I will be getting a 55b Lachenal Crane.. that is a long story dealing with USPS. but the question here is.. are the Salvation Army hand straps available anywhere? it could be kind of interesting to go the full on SA route.
  14. I’d say the CC. Rochelle/ jack/ elise etc as well. its good enough to get going on. And move up later. its cheap enough if it gets destroyed It is not a tragedy its easily replaced. By the exact same thing in lots of places. there is really nothing special about it. When he is ready to move up, he could gift it to somebody in his squad when he ships back. He could even put unit stickers on it and not destroy its value! and I’d do some sort of pelican case and cut the foam yourself. Water proof / sand proof/ sealed could be a real plus depending on conditions
  15. unless you are talking about a 6 or 8 sided wood or leather wrapped wooden cases. imo Not having a ladies make up case with wonky/ iffy latches would be a selling point. “Only the Finest Corinthian hides of the endangered Naugas lovingly wrapping the superlative quality cardboard!”
