alex_holden Posted April 21, 2021 Share Posted April 21, 2021 A recent discussion about Anglo note range brought up a question about a difference between the Wheatstone/Lachenal layout and the Jeffries layout. On a 30 button C/G Anglo, the third row furthest right button on the push. This tends to be A6 on Wheatstones/Lachenals. On at least one original Jeffries I've inspected, it is A5 instead. As @Pistachio Dreamerpointed out, the Wheatstone version makes sense because they already an A5 push on the second button of the right hand third row. Jeffries don't have A5 on the second button, and A6 is such a high pitch that it rarely gets played, so it makes sense to put A5 on the fifth button. What I'm not sure about is whether this was standard practice. Do Jeffries C/Gs all have A5 instead of A6 in that position? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
