  1. There is a change in the plan: I WILL take part in the Sunday summit and play a few songs there. Also I´m gonna do a little workshop at the concertina-meeting on Saturday: I will set up all my stuff (looper, stompbox, guitar-effects) and demonstrate it. You also have the opportunity to play through my setup with your own concertina, so you can hear yourself ROCKING. Also, if you are interested, we might learn a little rocksong (Do you wanna dance/Ramones version)
  2. I´m curious about your Crane anyway and looking forward to hear again that wonderful sounding Excelsior of yours. All the best
  3. Musik Boehmer and his Concertina from Hell will be playing on Friday, 17th of Mai in Hitzacker, that´s the weekend and the area of the German Concertina Meeting. So if you are interested in Rock, Pop and Blues Concertina and attend the meeting you are very welcome. Since I will not play at the Sunday summit of the meeting, this is a rare ocasion to see and hear live what a Concertina is also capable of. Here is a short version of my video: https://youtu.be/POUSadOYgcQ my website: http://www.musikboehmer.de the location: Kulturbahnhof Hitzacker https://www.kuba-ev.de/ Of course I am also looking forward to seeing you all again in Drawehn!
  4. This time I think I can make it because it´s not on the 1st of May. We even might have a little Duett-Jam.
  5. Thank you very much Wolf and good luck with your Crane, maybe hear you sometimes?
  6. Somebody contacted me through my Website. He is interested in selling a Wheatsone Serial Nr. 31319 built 1926. The Wheatstone Ledgers say it´s a 48 key so probably an English. I don´t know what the abbreviations mean: N.P., K.V., W.S., can you help? Could someone estimate it´s value or maybe someone is interested?
  7. I play several instruments and I have some experience on giving up. I have learned that there are reasons why you give up playing. Most of the time it is is FRUSTRATION (apart from health issues). Playing an Instrument in general is a fun and fascinating thing - why should you stop doing that? There where times, in my Concertina playing too, when I noticed that I play less and less, don´t practice anymore and so on. What I do then is try to ask myself why I don´t want to pick up the instrument right now. The answer always is that I´m frustrated with something. Maybe I set my ambitions too high, maybe progress is too slow,...there can be many reasons. It helps me when I analyze why and then try to find a way around it so I get back the fun in playing.
  8. I guess in most cases a small mixer would be fine. It would need 2 XLR input channels with phantom power. Most have an IQ, some have a knob to silence all output, or you could turn down the main-volume. Some have effects too, if you like to add some reverb. A mixer like that IS a DI Box with preamps and EQ. Here is an example: https://www.thomann.de/de/the_t.mix_micromix_1_usb.htm
  9. I have recorded a lot (including a CD), these microphones are all ok. But I seriously recommend using a smartphone (I used a Samsung but IPhones are at least as good). I still try to match the sound of some old recordings that were made in my former bathroom. A lot depends on the room acoustics and where you put the phone. You also should have a recording app that can record at least in 44,1 kHz and 16 bit and level the volume so that there is no overload. Afterwards you could optimize the sound and cut the ends on a PC.
  10. I finally got the CD, it took a while to get to Germany. I like it very much, congratulations Steve.
  11. Wow, thank you so much for the stunning comments. After all I´m just exploring what is possible for me and the instrument, like so many concertina players. And everyone is unique. Like Adrian and Susanna with Dappers Delight are one of a kind and you too Steve. I finally got your CD and I like it very much, it has a nice touch from Down Under. And Adrian - I´m glad you like it. Thank you so much for your help. And it would be very cool to see you again but I guess you won´t come to the German Concertina Meeting?
  12. If you are interested in Rock´n Roll Concertina, there´s a music-player embedded on my website now where you can preview my new EP (Tax Evasion) http://www.musikboehmer.de You´ll have to scroll down a bit All the best
