Bill Crossland Posted July 15, 2006 Share Posted July 15, 2006 (edited) Further to PeterT2s comment on the Rosewood ended option, I've had chance to play and inspect two 36 key Linota's from this period (1918 and 1920) just lately. both metal ended, both in original pitch. One is a black stained (rather than ebony) wood frame, the second rosewood. The black one is listed as a model number 61, the rosewood 55. Apart from the wood, the most obvious difference is one fold less in the bellows on the "55", which also has papers. Both play beautifully, but the black one is better - nicer tone, though the raised metal ends may impact on this. Was rosewood the "beginner" level for Linota anglo's of this period?
