  1. I found the response to be ok but overall the sound of them is a bit disappointing.A little weak and breathy. I would say they are equivalent to a very average set of Lachenal reeds and the sound to be somewhere between accordian and traditional reeds.
  2. If you fancy trying some there is actually a plentiful supply of LV in old abused crown green bowling balls they used to be about a fiver a piece .A challenging recycling project for sure. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Crown-Green-Bowls-pair-Woods/333447314592?hash=item4da3023ca0:g:DQEAAOSw0-5d~sHe
  3. It says somewhere they are attached with a small firm ball joint on the lever ends and they seal very well. David.
  4. Here you go,not mine by the way .David https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153674196603
  5. Hello,I think you'll find those are two different instruments in your stills.My guess for the one use in the video would be a Wheatstone with wooden ends and nickel buttons? David.
  6. If you need 1 mm these people supply small quantities. https://www.windplus.net/supplies/woven_felt_sheet.html
  7. Superb.I expect you familiar with this one but it always worth another watch.

  10. This should help clear up the name pronunciation and is a delightful watch as well. David.
  11. I have 9008 Geoff kindly told me it was made by H T Crabb in 1927. David.
  12. It opened ok for me @9.25 am,thank you.
  13. I just measured the card in a 12 sided Lachenal bellows from around 1910 and they are 1".David.
  14. I did a bit of reed cleaning and resetting today.I resisted the temptation to bring them back up a few cents to be bang on, as it would be very difficult to replace them if anything went wrong. I also made a new o ring to go under the lid so alls well and harmonious in the tea department.
  15. Almost looks as if some of the valves (in the chambers) are mount on the other end to usual?
