  1. Hmmm.....anybody know what the extra buttons are? Can't find a layout sheet on Suttner's site.
  2. I completely agree with that....but I think the deciding point will be the spacing between the buttons. If they are the same, I might as well get the 38.
  3. You're right, this needs to be taken into account!! I am like many of us. Good point. The internet-forum syndrome strikes again...
  4. Hello all! I have decided to order an ebony-sided C/G from Juergen Suttner, and have met the following obstacle: 30 or 38 buttons? I am playing Irish music, and have thought it handy to have a few extra buttons/alternates, but what are the pros and cons? Is there any difference in the spacing of the buttons? Slight weight difference. Price.. Most players of Mr. Suttner's instruments I have seen, have 38s with a few exceptions. regards Snorre (this is also posted at http://angloconcertinaplayers.ning.com) ***edited for punctuation***
  5. You will of course translate the answer into English when you get it, Fer? I am also wondering about the mics. S
  6. I had to play for the securityfolks at Paris Orly a month ago. The concertina looks great x-rayed though, all the levers and stuff:-D
  7. Maybe Fer doesn't "deserve" it in his own eyes in terms of musicianship? I know that ordering an instrument now, gives me a couple of years on my Morse to really get in shape for the transition to a top class concertina. On the other hand, if I got a deal I could afford a year down the road, I probalbly would have jumped it..... BTW Trolling: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=trolling
  8. Padraig Rynne (concertina), Dan Brouder (accordeon) and Brian Mooney (bouzouki) plays a few tunes live in studio about 1hr 6min 30sec into the show Wheels of the world Friday 19th of June: http://www.clare.fm/music/ClareFM%20trad%2...e%2009.mp3?l=12
  9. I agree with ceemonster. Spill it! Please!!
  10. Hmmm.....seems to me that the growing waiting lists indicating that more and more people are entering the market for high end instruments, and the market can't respond. Who knows how much a Dipper or a Suttner is worth 10-15 years after the maker has stopped making them?
  11. Hmmm....I am about to order my 38 b from Suttner.......tempting though. Good luck.

  13. Have searched a bit, but can't find the answer to the following: Does all Wheatstone / Lachenal Anglos have Wheatstone layout, or is it possible to find a Wheatstone with Jeffries layout? Thanks in advance Snorre
  14. Although I don't play regularly with good pipers (I wish I did...), I agree with you. I also want to say thanks for formulating the progression of learning Irish music on the concertina. First the tunes, then the variations, then the chords/octaves. This makes sense, as I am very much in the first category of getting as many tunes, and as much playing-time as possible, to establish a sense of security when playing. S
  15. Hmm....tricky though. I couldn't make head nor tail of the anglo when I started, but practice does seem to do the trick. Would changing interfere with the music you play/want to play? I only play Irish music, and the change over wouldn't do it for me. However, good luck, and maybe when you find your way with the EC, you might find your way back to the Anglo:-D
  16. Learn to live with it :-) Try to play as much as you can with other people, it's more enjoyable as well :-)
  17. Happy days. Hook a tube into your arm and away you go :-)
  18. Nice one David. I think this weekends isometric excercise will be |B,DA,B,| which is how I play it on the fiddle. Snorre edited for bad ABC....
  19. Hi I am not what I would call experienced, but what are the measures you have problems with? Can you post the abc for the version you are learning? Snorre
  20. I have a "Tune of the week" that I start and finish every practice (1 hr + a day). Last week it was "The Trip to Durrow", this week it's "The New Century". Some days I can practice seriously, other days I am just noodling, but I am serious about my tune of the week (that has usually come out of a noodling-session the week before). Sometimes it seems that "supercompensation" works: If you are used to playing every day, try NOT playing one day. I find that my senses are sharpened after a one day break.
  21. So who will you be taking lessons with? Oslo seems like a very nice city, will hopefully visit one day. I don't know yet, as Custy's are setting it up for me. Oslo is a nice city, you are welcome anytime. Our session is pretty open, so do bring your instrument if you're over!
