    cleaning brass reeds.

    As I showed David Leese a Scratch Pen I think that I can take the credit for this. You can get one from Proops Bros
  7. DO NOT TRY TO GLUE DELRIN /ACETAL / P O M You need acid at 150 degrees C . Nuff said. It's a cheapo Tina , get some 10 mm dowel , if you don't have access to a lathe put the bits in your drill to profile the ends

    Need some help, Pairing a tune with Scarborough Fair

    We ,collectively, are the carriers of our oral and aural traditions. It therefore behoves , each and everyone of us, to nuture and foster the knowledge and respect for that History. Like any language whether it be English, French, German or Urdu it is a Grade One A Star listed Building. It is incumbent on us to help with the education of Musically semi-literate audiences. It is Music not Bloody Muzak Don The Cash is in the Post( Will it get through Canadian Customs though M'Duck?) Pounds 5 Pounds is a good song and well worth a look and a listen

    Need some help, Pairing a tune with Scarborough Fair

    Scarborough Fair is an ENGLISH TUNE. Why on Earth mix it with Irish tunes. Look at English Country Dance Tunes or Playford or even some of the tunes in Folk Songs from Florida. Please respect the Tradition and do not merge it into an amorphous World Music Mush

    Who Made These Reedpans

    From the quality of the Timber ,being quarter sawn , I would hazard a guess at Chidley. He was in a previous life a Timber Merchant. Wheatstone did not stamp reed pans in this fashion
  13. Oh I do wish that I could still play my Tina, but M N D precludes this I did so enjoy these meetings. Lovely playing Keep up the Good Work Chaps and Chapesses
