  1. There is a Boyd concertina to be auctioned together with a violin... Boyd Can anybody tell from the picture, if it is a Wheatstone or Lachenal Boyd?? I think that the flat buttons point towards Lachenal...
  2. I have an ebony ended and an Amboyna ended 48 key Aeola piccolo plus a rare 24 key metal ended one. They are great little boxes - but I hardly ever play them...
  3. Don't worry. One day - if you stick to it - you wil have a couple of nice ones;-) Here some of my finest Aeolas, the Amboyna gang:
  4. Chirs Algar currently has an early sixsided pinhole Aeola for sale for 2500 Pound... The are usually good fast players with a really soft unique sound... https://concertina.co.uk/stock-selection/english-concertinas/wheatstone-pinhole-aeola-48-key-treble/
  5. In my opinion you can't easily top a good ebony ended Aeola - if you find one!?! Chris Algar usually has a few. I have one out for restoration ( in Britain ) and possible sale... I used a Wheatstone Boyd for many years ( even louder than my M22s ), but eventually switched to an EE Aeola for a softer sound. It has a wider dynamic range and more "body" to the sound while still being quite loud, if required. However individual instruments vary a lot. So make sure to test before buying such an expensive thing... PS: I always "tuned" my main instruments by reducing the spring-pressure to make them really fast...
  6. 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...
  7. Which is the lowest note? Treble or really tenor??
  8. 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;-)
  9. 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 ).
  10. 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...
  11. I was just wondering, if anybody has ever seen or owned a bass-concertina with metal ends? Or is this the only one!?!
  12. A friend asked me to find him an ebony-ended Aeola ( treble ). Any ideas?? Please pm...
  13. Good luck! They are very rare... I only have this one:
