    I once had a German made box distributed by Campbells, I think from the early 1900's, .....one has been discussed previously on C.Net...... with a  "slide" mechanism by the thumb, which created a single or dual reed effect on all the buttons.  It was a melodeon reeded instrument rather than traditional, but the effect was the same...."Celestial" ?? or some such branded ? 



    I now own the one described above. Celestial means double reed tremolo tuning according to the Dan Warroll's article here.

    Were they filmed in Japan? I notice on google that there’s a Birdland Cafe in Okinawa.

    I think the first one was filmed in Japan, at Birdland Cafe in Kanagawa, not in Okinawa.

    serial number 14949.

    Does it have "Louis Lachenal" label or "Lachenal & Co" label ? If the latter, it might be 114949 (leading 1 missing) or 14949X. I once saw the photo of 15130 (slightly later than yours) which had "Louis Lachenal" label and numbered keys. That was with 20 buttons though.  ?

  4. If I understand correctly, ESB is a baritone(1 octave below) and Cormac plays both baritone and bass(2 octaves below). I am not sure the one in the clip is a baritone or a bass. As far as I know, Dipper makes bass anglo. ?

    If you were to have the 5 main G row buttons which extra buttons would you want for accidentals if only 2-3.

    In my case, it was a C row with C# and F# accidental. But if it was in G and 3 buttons top and 2 or 3 buttons below, I think Dipper layout in fig.9 (of PICA vol.9) makes sense.
