  9. Yep, exactly what Geoff said. He probably explained it better than i did.
  10. Yep, We'd call a C/g our 'd' concertina, a Csharp/Gsharp an 'Eb' concertina and a Bb/F a 'C' concertina etc. suppose its the association with other instruments (a 'D' flute/tin whistle etc.) the main key we're playing in. An for 20 button, I have never come across a 20 button in a session/ concert here ever. Maybe it would be a new trend to start though.

  20. Hi Paul, I haven't actually seen the original post but i think i read something else someone put up. Thats an amazing story and thanks for sharing your info with me. Any everyone else too. Sean
  21. Thats great to hear. There are so many myths and theories. Just had to clear it up for myself. Would accordion reed steel be too soft to be used to replace a broken jeffries reeds? say hohner reed steel?
  22. perfect. thanks guy. and what about using clock springs for steel? I've also notice that they are all the same width (well the ones i've seen) Any reason for this?
