michael sam wild Posted May 24, 2010 Share Posted May 24, 2010 (edited) My old Jeffries 26button C/G is beginning to wear thin at the corners underneath, despite not playing across my knees. One corner has been mended at some time with a thin leather patch stuck on externally that looks and works well. Any hints on a skived type of leather and the best adhesive? By the way , at Swaledale the other weekend's workshop on East Clare style music, Harry Scurfield made a good case for playing across the knee and commented that an earlier need for repair was worth it for the control afforded. With bellows falling open it's a lot less work on the pull and encourages legato playing. Edited May 24, 2010 by michael sam wild Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
