Eb/Bb Scholer - missing one brass Reed - anyone want it?


Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

This Scholer (E German) 20b  that interestingly plays in Eb and Bb came to me via a friend seeing it in a charity shop.  And fiddling about with it made me sure I wanted to get a really nice Lachenal 20b last year! (And boy am I glad about that..love it to bits)  So I thank it for that - it got me going just at the start of the initial lockdown with Covid!

 

However that said one of its reeds is missing (button 5 on the left on the push)

 

As I’ve seen before here, repairers have said it’s not worth repairing and they can’t get hold of brass reeds.  But I think someone here recently has a project they’re working on that they want brass reeds for too and it shows that people are interested

 

But more to the point I’m not personally interested in restoring things - so I wondered if anyone else fancied it (for the price of postage) for whatever project they’d like to use it on

Nice! German traditional reeds, 10 to a plate - I bet it sounds nice and rich. Somebody has kept it playable by replacing the old, leather valves with plastic. Pity about the broken reed.

Cheers,

John

The top row is particularly easy to play - the bottom somewhat stiffer just now.  I’m glad someone has given it attention in the past.  It is fine single line though I think with harmony it’d use a wee tune here and there.
