  1. Geoff and Wolf, as far as know it was fine tuned to its original tuning by Colin dipper 6 or 7 years ago.
  2. I'm still searching......would now consider metal ends
  3. No wolf I don't remember.......but that big a rebuild would have been spotted by Monsieur wooff ....
  4. Yes Wolf!...thank you. there's no mention of replacement ends in the original thread by Geoff so these must have been done since 2014?
  5. Chris algar has a baritone treble aeola for sale at the moment on his website......number 29395. This concertina was discussed in a thread in October 2014 as it was for sale on eBay( sorry I can't do a thread link). As far as i know when on eBay it had its original ends.Does anyone know who made the new ends for it?
  6. I was thinking of somewhere a little warmer than Rockall.........
  7. I'll opt for my brass reeded George case treble.....it plays sweetly and quietly so as to not annoy the natives .........and the reeds won't rust.......
  8. You're allowed to take one concertina.........what one and why...?
  9. Wow Richard.....it looks fantastic! What's the serial number.
  10. Well I emailed Steve, (thanks Greg!!), And he has said a 64 key bass baritone tenor.....8 3/4 inches across......he probably has the strongest thumbs in the country.......
  11. Wolf, I love playing my baritone as it sounds lovely......but I essentially play it exactly the same way as my treble.The idea of the tenor or baritone treble is that I can improve my playing by adding some lower accompanying notes to tunes I already play........
  12. Nope ..... can't in any way do it automatically....... However if anyone can and they want to swap their baritone-treble for my baritone....message me please?
  13. I have a baritone.....so perhaps I should practice the opposite fingering in the treble range..... Save myself some money.......!!
  14. Does that mean it's actually a bass- baritone , not a baritone treble?
  15. I given up on those wolf!!...... The new model I was going to "butcher" is one of Geoff's favourite concertinas... I'm allowed the low f but that's it!
  16. I've seen him play twice .......once in Cornwall and once in Devon.I really enjoyed his playing.i think I shall make the effort to see him again this year.i might even pluck up the courage to ask him for a go!!
  17. Does anyone know what type of aeola Steve Turner normally plays...(very well!)
  18. Is this Geoff because you have a vested interest in me "buggering up" my /your lachenal new model!!.....?☺ I do see your logic however........but if I can't afford a tenor or baritone treble then do you agree it makes sense as a last resort.
  19. Thanks for the replies! I'm in agreement with you Wolf........... I like the idea of an f and d where the a flat is. And an e and g# or a c and g#
  20. I would love a wooden ended tenor treble,they are however rare and expensive........ justifying spending 3500-4000 pounds to the family so I can have a low c,d and e is tricky ....... I do however have a very good treble.would it be feasible to add some solder to the 4 a flat and g sharp reeds so that I have one aflat\g sharp and perhaps an f ,d and c? Has anyone done this or is it not a sensible idea?
  21. Thanks nic......I really want a wooden ended one.the world's oldest edeophone looks a bit delicate and the baritone treble has new ends.the metal ones look great but I doubt the family would agree! If I had a choice!!! I would like original wooden ends, original bellows........not bothered whether an aeola, edeophone or raised or flat 6 sided thingy......a good bit of fingernail wear and general patina would be appreciated!
