Heavyweight Boxer

Heavyweight Boxer (5/6)

  1. I had several M21s. As far as I know, they all had original 5.foldes or later replacements... However in the late twenties 6- folders became more common as standard for model 21 and 22... As far as I know, they always were an optional exrta...
  2. Which is the lowest note? Treble or really tenor??
  3. I sold three basses over the years... And I still have that huge ME Aeola-bass plus two ebony-ended double-action Aeola-basses, one down to C, one down to G;-)
  4. Thanks for all your answers. I was in fact wondering, if there is another ES bass ( fingered two octaves below treble ) with metal ends around... I know of large Mccanns that go down to the bass range. I have two ebony-ended Aeola basses, one down to C and one down to G ( both double action ) and a ME bass-baritone Aeola ( down to C ).
  5. By the way, the 30th annual German Concertina-Meeting took place online last weekend. The saturday-evening concert included myself ( ES ), Jochen Riemer ( McCann, Chemnitzer ), Stefan Böhmer ( hard-rock-McCann! ), Rainer Süßmilch ( ES, all that jazz ), Rob Harbron and Dave Townsend. Alistair Andertson didn't make because of computer-problems... Best linup ever!? There should be a detailed report at the next ICA Jounal...
  6. I was just wondering, if anybody has ever seen or owned a bass-concertina with metal ends? Or is this the only one!?!
  7. A friend asked me to find him an ebony-ended Aeola ( treble ). Any ideas?? Please pm...
  8. Good luck! They are very rare... I only have this one:
  9. If you know what to look for, you can tell that it is a 48 key tenor by the position of the buttons! I love these small tenors, even though they have not quite enough air for big chords. I have a metal-ended one ( which belonged to Alf Edwards ), an ebony-ended one plus an Amboyna-ended one - all rather late models. Supposedly Wheatstone only started in the late twenties to make these!? I had a couple of Lachenal F-tenors, which look the same, but play in the key of F if fingered like a treble, but one row down... Rare and interesting stuff!
  10. I do have a Lachenal Tutor with decent fife-fold bellows, but quite terrible brass reeds!? I had been looking for a set of steel-reeds - but without success. I'm asking 300€, based in Germany...
  11. I made them an offer, but they never responded. Most likely more than you paid...
  12. I have seen them on later Aeolas - just as there are plenty of late Anglo-Aeolas with eight folds... Juliette Daum had one. It was an absolute cracker!!
  13. Did you check www.concertina.com for details?
