  1. By far, the best type of case for a concertina that I've found is to buy and upper-end camera bag.  They are fully padded and have hand and shoulder straps and an inch or more of foam padding around all sides.  My Aeola when flying to the pavement once from 5'ft up out of my hands.  It rolled harmlessly to a stop with out damage or a sound.

    Try that with a wooden or leather original case.

  3. Hello all,

     

    This is Tom from Baltimore, Maryland USA. I've been handed a brand new Hohner D40 in pristine condition to sell for my friend Jeff. Our brief story goes like this... Jeff plays the flute and whistle in my band. He wanted to experiment with his musical diversity but has given up after three months of trying to learn the Anglo...I didn't even know he was trying this. I own and play three Wheatstone English trebles but can't help him at all except to pass one onto you or else launch it on Ebay. He purchased this from the House of Musical Traditions near Washington DC (link below) and paid over $200 for it. Other local stores and Ebay want $175 and up plus shipping.

     

    I'd like to see him get $150 if I can or reasonable offers near this. I can send you real pictures of it when I get a chance but for now you can look at the links for pictures. My email is rittertj@comcast.net. I'll be checking in here as well for questions.

     

    Thanks

    Tom

  4. My appologies to all on my difficulty deciphering gender. Her ad looked so attractive that I should have known immediately.

     

    Wow, why are there strange errors existing in the ad of the tina's description in both year and price. I too wonder how it is that these do not match. This is how I contacted Gillian from the US by responding to the ad. ???

     

    Anyway, I was just trying to do a good deed.


  5. Hi all,

     

    My recently acquired post-7231-0-73899200-1322458644_thumb.jpg friend Gillian in Australia has a nice Metal ended English treble Aeola for sale. As I was first interested, then could not commit, I told him I'd let you all know about it. I own a Aeola from this period and mine is light, loud, and wonderful to play. His link is referenced below.

     

    His email is: Gillian.Alcock@netspeed.com.au let him know if you're interested.

     

    Here's what he has said about it in his advertisement.

     

    1980 Wheatstone English Aeola for sale manufactured around 1980 for the present owner. It has plated metal ends, fully fretted and 'dished' rather than flat. The six-fold leather bellows are original and perfect. The steel reeds speak clearly and loud, making this an excellent box for sessions, tuned to modern concert pitch A440. It has been played regularly and kept in good order, always stored and transported in the flight case shown. Serial number is 600**, and was manufactured in Eye.
