Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. Thanks Mike....the instrument is 1891.
  2. I have pmed you Mike...
  3. Small and limited by a wife and two children.....
  4. Does anyone have an original paper Wheatstone oval label they would sell me please? Best wishes Simon
  5. Does anyone have an unloved treble English languishing on a workshop shelf looking for a home.Must have potential and be in concert pitch ! Anything else I'll have a go at repairing. All the best Simon
  6. I am after a single action English bass Uk only . Please message me .
  7. Hi Geoff, SteveS has a 60 key aeola baritone for sale further down this page!....It now says withdrawn but you might twist his arm? All the best, Simon
  8. Thanks dowright for all that info. Could some of the new models, with higher button numbers be baritone trebles, or are all of those numbers just transposing baritones? It looks to me that with your extensive data base , lachenal probably didn't make any BTs?
  9. Thanks for that John.If Wheatstone thought it was a viable and saleable instrument to make, I'm surprised that lachenal didn't make any to compete?
  10. I think a few forum members have new model baritones, and searching leads to about 3 edeophone baritones sold over the years, but no baritone trebles. I'm guessing that if you and Geoff haven't come across any over the years, they probably don't exist.
  11. Hi Geoff, Did you count them all!!! You need to spend your money on croissants and red wine over the next few months , not lachenal new models...:-)
  12. Thanks Jim!....here's an instrument layout for you to get your head around..... The reason I asked is because I have a baritone edeophone pitched in b flat, an old salvation army concertina. So every note is a tone lower than a normal baritone.Which means that you can play it exactly as a normal baritone , but it sounds a tone lower.Or if you play it 2 rows forward, it plays as a normal (baritone )treble with the low notes lying below as you would expect for a BT, ..... except however that the b flats and e flats are in the middle rows........ I think that makes sense!!! I can see no mention of baritone trebles in the lachenal pricelists of the 20s and 30s. I remember someone counting the number of aeola BTs in the Wheatstone ledgers a few years ago and there being a total of just over 100 ish model 14, 15 and 16s in total.....
  13. Yes , what a great looking instrument........but a baritone not a baritone treble!!
  14. Has anyone ever seen or owned a baritone treble edeophone or new model.Did lachenal make them or was it purely a Wheatstone thing? Best wishes simon
