  2. please can somebody come up with something soon before the money gets spent on a new cooker.......... I'm not too sure now about tortoiseshell,surely the action's going to be very slow
  3. my thoughts are with you Chris. I met Rosie and Chris on Christmas Day 2007 having been playing the english concertina for only about 10 days .The way Rosie played the concertina amazed me.She is still the only good english concertina player I have seen live and consequently the time I spent watching her play really inspired me.Together with Chris' tremendous enthusiasm and help they have played a large part in my own enthusiasm and dedicated learning of the instrument throughout the last 14 months.I'm really ,really sorry Chris. very best wishes, simon
  4. sell me your edeophone chris, and I'll wear proper trousers for the rest of my days....think of all the compost and seeds you could buy with the money!!
  5. still looking for an excellent aeola or edeophone, preferably metal ended,but would consider amboyna,tortoiseshell? or ebony please look in all garages and corners of attics!!! money is now really burning a big hole in my jeans pocket.... best wishes, simon
  6. still looking.....have sold some more magic beans..so could now be in the market for a metal ended aeola... or an edeophone...still only 48 keys....that's plenty best wishes, simon

  9. hi, am looking to buy an old leather case for a tenor treble aeola .Don't mind how battered/knackered it is....Does anyone have one gathering dust at the back of their garage? best wishes, simon
  10. thanks theo...anything else worth knowing about it?If it was a 48 key I'd have a bid I think...does it sound lovely in old pitch? simon
  11. how are the bellows theo?
  12. Chris, I haven't got any metal-ended concertinas......therefore I COULD have justified it to my partner maybe !!
  13. where's it gone? I want it! it seems to have disappeared from ebay?
  14. anyone fancy breaking into manchester hobgoblin tonight..... check out their second hand english concertinas that have just come in...........Oh my god!
  15. I've been watching the lachenal..but the new photos have put me off it seems to have quite big splits in the action board and the reeds look really rusty.... any thoughts?
  16. thanks for the suggestions, but I really only want a 48 button treble. air levers are acceptable extras..
  17. sorry for any contradition/confusion tallship...!!was just trying to emphasize that I really want an exceptional player!!! I'm also prepared to pay top dollar ....not looking for a bargain!!!
  18. hi all, does anyone have or know of a super responsive,positive ,nimble metal ended treble for sale...i.e a raised ended wheatstone(22 ) or a lachenal new model ...Condition isn't too important but must play well!!! thank you simon
  19. the kesh jig...... thanks! still worth looking at the youtube clip...
  20. Hi all , I need help could some one please tell me the name of the jig that is the 3 rd one played on this you tube vid. I heard it a few times at sidmouth but never got round to asking anyone its on you tube if you type in "sarsfield's jig" (sorry for not being able to do the link) thanks, simon
  21. thank you I would also like some help on the different features within edeophones themselves...i.e.between early edeophones pre 1900 and the so called good period of edeophones when their serial numbers are in the 50,000?!are there marked improvements on the later edeophones or are some of the early ones potentially near perfect as well? and in what ways are they different?
  22. hi could any one please tell me the main differences between the majority of edeophones from the '20s...serial numbers in the 50,000s ,compared with earlier edeophones from say the late 1890s!! In terms of loudness, tone action and build quality. having read previous threads buying an edeophone seems to be a bit of a minefield.Is the variation in quality mainly within the later ones or is with all edeophones? finally given a choice which would you buy? ...("buy an aeola instead "is not an acceptable answer!) thanks very much..
  23. still for sale and now open to reasonable offers!!
