  1. The concertina is sold. Thank you for looking.
  2. For sale Very nice Edgley GD Jeffires layout. Pro model with stainless steel endcaps. Ordered new by me. I play other instruments and the concertina never gets played at all. I would like it to go to someone who will enjoy it. The instrument has never been out in public and is in new condition. Includes hard case. A great opportunity to get a fantastic instrument with no wait. 1,800.00 USD. Pics:
  3. I had called my maker, Andreas Rogge, to get an update on my pipes. It had been over 3 years since I ordered them. One of his workers, Jens said that he remembered seeing a box with my name on it full of cocobolo and gleaming silver. I was very excited by this news, I tell ya. He emailed me a couple of pictures of all the bits and pieces. I never realized how many pieces there are in a set of pipes. It's amazing actually. If anyone would like to see the full-size picture I'd be gald to email it to you or if someone wants to host it on the site here I'll send it. Best, Paul
  4. It's one of his sessioneers which is his top model. I got it a few weeks back and I wanted to wait till I had got it figured out and played it a while before posting an opinion so that I would have something at least a little interesting to say. Before he sent it, Frank told me that he was very pleased with it. He let some other folks look at it and play it a bit and he told me that they also agreed that it was a really good one. (I put that in this post because I am a beginner and I wanted to back up my opinion with some comments I knew of from experienced players). I also play whistle, l
  5. Hiya, Steven! Thanks for the welcome, guys. I see that you agree with my wife that I'm crazy. I'll probably change the avatar to a picture of my concertina when I get it. As for those pipes, I listened for at least the 7 prescribed years and then I ordered them and waited nearly 4 more for them to get built. It was worth it, though. Best, Paul
  6. I just got an email from Frank Edgley that my D/G is done! He says I should be getting it in a week or so after he gets it all tuned up. I'm looking forward to joining the fray. *edited to change C/G to D/G. oops
  7. Congratulations Squeezemeister! That is a great looking instrument.
  8. I'll second that. Sounds interesting. *edited because I just noticed the materials thread down the list. sorry.
  9. Well, I work *a lot*. But in my spare time, there's not much, I am in the process of learning to play whistle, low whistle, guitar, banjo (not well on that though) and my Uilleann pipes will be here soon (I hope) I've been waiting 3 & ½ years for them. I'm set to order my concertina tomorrow which I'm gonna add to the mix. I'm hoping to get good on all of them by the time I retire or maybe sooner. I just love this music. A lot of times nothing else matters. I'm sure some of you can relate to that. I spend the rest of my time with my lovely wife and our 4 cats. Oh
  10. Wow! Thanks everyone for all the replies. I'm now comfortable with this part of my decision. That's what I thought, Jim. That makes sense. It's more important to learn the instrument than just certain fingerings. I've had a G/D played for me and I love the sound of it. so after reading here, I think my first one will be one of those. I say first one because from the looks of things a lot of you experienced concertinists have ended up with several of them. If I know myself I can comfortably say that if things go well with this one I'll probably end up in the same boat. Thank
  11. I'm sure this has come up before here, but I couldn't find anything. OK. I have got the bug. I'm about ready to get a concertina. This has been gnawing away at me for a couple of years. The thing is that I learn on other instruments by ear and watching others play. I can't read music. I like the sound of the G/D and my singing voice is low. Do y'all think that a G/D could be used with the various video or CD instructionals out there? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. All the best, Paul Light
