  1. I’m not planning on purchasing but I just found it interesting and I kind of knew that’s what you would say a guy has one for sale and it’s listed as a 7E But it’s showing as a 48 key
  2. G’day my Fellow Concertinist. I am trying to interpret line 180 from the Horiman Ledgers. I do understand that it was Produced December, 1955. But what is a 7E. And what would be the overall quality of a concertina made during this. Any other information would be appreciated I have attached a picture. Looking forward to hearing from all your experts out there. Stephentx
  3. 4to5to6 I would really appreciate it if you would if you could convince the owner to open it up and take some pictures as this estimate fascinates me. Thank you so muchstephentx
  4. Thank you I really don’t need another Concertina either but I found this one interestingThank you I really don’t need another Concertina either but I found this one interesting
  5. Did you actually play this concertina? Is it the same one that was advertised in Vancouver Just curious
  6. Steve Do you know if this instrument is still available and where I would like to inquire if you have it. Thank youDo you know if this instrument is still available and where I would like to inquire if you have it. Thank you
  7. Dave, Wow to heard from the Dave E. I’ll take care of ice and take her apart again and check much appreciated for your suggestions stephen
  8. Geoff I don’t know if I think you for providing all this information as I haven’t been on for a day or so but thank you I’ve looked all over and I still can’t find your eyes such a wealth of knowledge. Much appreciated
  9. I just found a note that the button box says that they felt it was made after 1957 from your note is your experience that the 50’s Aeolas were sub par? Why? I was also puzzled by your comment about South Africa don’t you live in France?
  10. GeoI have taken it apart and looked all around and could not find it I don’t think the button box was able to find it either when the lady who ultimately got it from had it serviced by them.ff I have taken it apart and looked all around and could not find it I don’t think the button box was able to find it either when the lady who ultimately got it from had it serviced by them.
  11. So the number 6 as mentioned by Steve is actually parallel or associated with 1EAnd my Concertina is an 56 extended aeola so it would be a 5 E
  12. Steve there is also the number 6 stamped on the left reed pan. With a categorize a Aeola as a 1E. What do you mean work back as I move to the right of the number six I already see a serial number of 36132??Thank you this group is always so helpful and interesting
  13. Opinions sought: I have an Aeola Extendef Treble exactly like the one being discussed in buy and sale that I got through CNET an excellent price from a non concertina person who was selling her Mother’s concertina. The serial # plate was gone and nothing inside. Her Mother had it service by the Button Box who dated it as 1950’ish. 6 fold bellows. How would you all categorize it (the model a d era) being low, medium or high quality. I know a lot of you know a lot about productions the quality of instrument during particular times/dates and would be interested in hearing from you. Thank you Stephen
  14. Geoff I noticed on some of the instruments that they have thicker thumb straps. I happen to run across this post I’m wondering if anyone knows where are you can get those I wonder if the button box or Greg J does it
  15. Steve , I was following this conversation. What did you end up doing? How much were they asking? Thank you Stephen
  16. Love it One of my favorite songs and one of my favorite movies. Thank you for sharing
  17. I seem to be having problem with the app relative to where to go to send a individual member a personal message and then how to attach a photo. Thank you for your help.
  18. A “stiffy” of some sort? Got to say that brought a smile to my face 🙂 . I’m not inquiring about thumb support but Found it interesting that individuals were individuals mentioning the use of a wrist splint. Perhaps across the ocean there one in the same thing with a stiffy—But me a wrist support is totally different.
  19. Hi I noted your mention of “wrist splints’ me toning Dave C. Interesting do you know washer I might see these. Does anyone else use wrist splints would be interested in any comments thank you Stephentx I
  20. Dave Ps I just viewed your videos “beautiful “! How long have you been playing?
  21. David, you certainly shot my theory about being a healthcare provider! 🙂 my bad I just spent time studying other things or working rather than devoting time to music theory which I am doing now. Small world I am a C R N A, Previously a director of a school of anesthesia and transitioned into administration over the years. I spent most of my career in Hawaii moving to the mainland being recruited by Columbia Presbyterian in New York City as executive director of corporate operating rooms. On the merger of Cornell and Columbia the hand writing was on the wall and I took a VP position in Texas. For The past 15 years I work for The Joint Commission five of which were as a full-time Surveyor I currently am a Associate Director of standards interpretation. I have a great job in that I telecommute full-time. I completely understand what you’re saying about music theory that’s exactly what I’m trying to do. And I do appreciate all the valuable information everyone is providing. I have books on music theory but somehow it doesn’t sink in as well as some of the discussions also I have found there’s some great YouTube classes which I have started. So I am focusing it. Back in 2012 I took Skype lessons from Pauline de Snoo but my right hand Thumb joint gave out on me and I had to have a thumb arthroplasty. Too many years squeezing the bag and typing. So I have just recently rejuvenated my efforts. . Trying to get away from having to constantly just read the music to play to being able to sing Accompanying myself with the chords. I have a big voice ( similar to Dave Coffins) as one of my avocations in earlier years was musical theater and opera having taken years of voice lessons. Are you still practicing? Well I gave you probably more information than you wanted to know but I do appreciate you taking the time it’s very helpful in trying to sort all this out as I am studying music theory. Stephen
