  1. Hi folks, I've just made a video on YouTube... - Whether anyone knows of any experiments in rounding the square ends of reeds, to mellow the tone, what happened. - Another invitation for you to join a Google+ group for video conferencing about modernizing the concertina (the Concertina Nova group in Google+). 'Idea is, let's talk about options like: crowd funding some progressive R&D; using 3D printing & any new materials that we find surpass traditional ones, reshaping the fingerboard, buttons, bellows, or anything else we feel might be enhanced for sound, ease of playing, construction, robustness, cost and appeal to (especially young) audiences. We all revere the beauty of good-quality traditional-form instruments, and the culture of self-sacrificing peril-fraught work to create them. But imagine if we could find ways to quite quickly and cheaply make almost-as-good by humbly rethinking the instrument in every way - trial and error with new ideas and today's resources. For anyone interested I've posted the requirements specification - as a draft .rtf file on Google Drive - you can view it at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-4satLcOAKGV09JUFBkU2hqd28/edit?usp=sharing - in Tumblr at http://palmytomo.tumblr.com/ The video's at http://youtu.be/VDYuu2T6gQo Cheers, Bruce (Tomo) Thomson 20 Lyndhurst St. Chelwood Village, Palmerston North, New Zealand 06 357 7773 021 176 9711 palmytomo@gmail.co
