A Redrow Concertina


Recommended Posts

It's truly a beautiful and creative piece of work, Bob.

How about a dark green one with leaf motif bellows papers---The Hedgerow?

 

Or with bellows made from Spanish leather...........a Pedrow?

...

... Teddyrow: The ends have a plush finish. I would expect a soft tone.

... Credrow: Looks exactly like a vintage Jeffries -- including worn plating, etc., -- thereby enhancing your credibility with concertina snobs even if you can't play it.

... Treadrow: So sturdily built, you can walk on it without damaging it.

... Spreadrow: More bellows folds than you could possibly use.

... Headrow(1): Voiced specially to give a pleasing sound when played in the WC.

... Headrow(2): The design on the papers is cannabis leaves, and the "drone" button opens a hidden compartment.

... Leadrow: The heaviest concertina you've ever tried to play.

... Fredrow: For the guy who said that "Latin is a dead language."

... Deadrow: You'll be ever so grateful to get one of these.

... Wedrow: These come in his-and-hers pairs. (A different sort of "duet". ;))

... Zedrow: Absolutely the last word in concertinas.

 

OK. Back to work. :)

 

P.S. ... Rowrow: Especially for those who do sailors' songs. :D

Deathrow: for your final tune

DEAthrow: In the US that would be something you toss at an officer of the Drug Enforcement Administration. :o

 

Crow: a group of them is clearly murder

Much better to have only one, in between the Grow and the accidentalrow.

 

................. :D
