  2. hi chris, can you tell me whereabouts chris' stand is in sidmouth..I can't find him in the blackmore gardens with the other trade stands?all the best, simon
  3. I meant that the reeds are "very large".....the concertina itself is slightly bigger than my baritone The b flats are are in the outside rows, not the middle ones? Like you say they are great quality instruments, and I played it for a couple of months non stop..transposing music down ,so that it fit into the 35 button layout.It makes an amazing sound....maybe I should keep it!!!!
  4. will attempt some photos this weekend...could you describe your trebles please?
  5. any trebles available for swapsies Jim?
  6. its got 35 buttons , if anyone's interested!!
  7. lachenal english ebony ended new model tenor excellent 6 fold bellows very large,but very responsive reeds concert pitch interesting bassoon/oboe type sound excellent condition apart from a few of the buttons have the tips worn off at angle. range is from c below mid c to the fsharp above the c above mid c...30 something buttons would like to swap it for a very good treble,maybe brass reeded....
  8. does anyone know the tune "davey's" or does it have a more common name? as I've looked on the session and can't find it anywhere. thanks , simon
  9. if you search on you tube for...concertina virtuosity no 1 ..there's a chap ruling on a treble aeola.Can someone tell me the name of the tune please and the name of the player.thanks in advance
  10. No offers of any baritones so far on my other thread so does anyone want to swap one for my treble aeola its ebony ended 48 key 1911,fretted between the buttons(81 fret?),steel reeds, as new 6 fold bellows,revalved,bushed and touch tuned last year.its particularly strong,and thick sounding right through the range and plays excellently.
  11. does anyone want to swap a wheatstone aeola ebony ended treble for a baritone?Its number 25000ish ,steel reeds , 6 fold bellows..................
  12. he does still have it........ it is however 3 thousand pounds...
  13. hi robin, I'm not sure if i want steel or brass reeds...what do you think?I shall be playing it mainly at home I guess.I've got your old metal ended machine gun if I want to make some serious noise in public!!! Chris ..next time you're down in devon I'll give a surfing lesson if you want one! you're never too old
  14. you've got a deal chris....your wheatstone baritone for one of my vintage surfboards? What do you fancy a 9'6'' bilbo or maybe a 7'0 creamed honey single fin pintail from '76. You won't need a leash just take your one off your edeophone
  15. maybe an ebony ended edeophone baritone then barry!!
  16. I'd like to buy a vintage wooden ended baritone english.probably brass reeds,but not definitely.Any help or leads appreciated.(this WILL be my last concertina!) kind regards, simon

  19. are there any significant "performance" differences between a wheatstone boyd and a lachenal boyd?and as seems to be typical of lachenals is there a huge variation betwwen one lachenal boyd and another? how do your 2 lachenal boyds compare with each other Rob?
  20. thanks for all the responses ........hi john, looks like I'm going to have to go to france to see chiton1 .....fancy a day trip on the plymouth to roscoff ferry!!?? best wishes, simon
