  1. So I’m playing last night in my local session.A friend finds this under my seatnds this under my seat. I look at my box and see my low F button is an empty hole with a red felt bottom.Pretty essential note for my style and setlist.Just now I opened the Dickinson Tenor mechanical chamber for the first time,and retrieved the other half. W-a-y too challenging to super-glue back together.(at least for me)So I looked at the fingering chart and decided to forgo having the high C#.I managed to steal that button and put it in the low F’s spot.The hardest part was getting the bushings to stay in place insidethe buttons. (Not the ones lining the outer holes.)Pretty good, eh ?
  2. I'm selling it for an elderly friend who bought it 20yrs ago in LA for $4000. Whatcha think ?
  3. We need some people to repair our boxes here in the USA. All the folks I'm aware of are moving on to other pursuits or are in the UK. HOPING for the next generation !!
  4. Are there any makers of MIDI English Concertinas ? Not in development. Ready for or IN production. RIggy
  5. 64 button tenor extended treble in excellent condition. Concert pitch and lovely rich sound, especially on the low notes. Presumed Wheatsone but no serial number found. Comes with both the original case and new fitted hard case. attached pics and also the most recent refurbish receipt $5k or best offer
  6. Yes. Everyone agrees it is an extended treble. BUT which way does it extend, up or down ? DOWN to a low C, below the usual G in trebles is ideal.
  7. ANYBODY got a download of this historic recording ? I learned almost everything I know from it, but miss listening to it now. eBay only has it on vinyl.
  8. Thanks Richard! I'm almost back to that famous setting on the dryer "NORMAL", but that may be an exaggeration.
  9. I love your instrument Geoff Wooff, and would love to find one similar
  10. Just repeated to gjowaisas@fioptics.com
  11. I just sent you a repair request @ greg@gregsfolkmusic.com. Is that the correct address ?
  12. In the midst of all my Baritone investigations a dear friend here in Berkeley, who by-the-way took over my lodgings in Newcastle when I left to return to the states in ’72, came over and gave me this, on extended loan. Exactly what I wanted !!! 36 button Wheatstone which is one octave below the usual 48. He has owned it for 40 years and hasn’t played it much. Works fairly well & I will do some valve and tuning work. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT ?
