That was exactly the reply that came to me when I first read the message.

 

Reminds me of one of the older players here who tapped his box and at the dust flying out of the holes remarked: 'Sure, it's fine, when you see the holes you know they've left'

Nah, they just have big woodworms in Coventry.

 

Chris

Scary!

 

(I see the seller has now added a note on the listing about the extra holes)

Which reminds me of a "fact":-

 

To tell if woodworm is still in the instrument it is necessary to count the holes. An odd number means that it is still in there and an even number means it has gone :ph34r:

Another "fact":-

 

Making holes in wood must rank as one of the most boring jobs in the world! But someone has to do it. :D

Cute, but false. B)

Two holes could mean two woodworms entered and neither left. :ph34r:

 

In which case they could be breeding a whole lot more?

(Or do they have to grow into wood moths, first? :unsure: )

I think everone has overlooked the obvious:

 

A previous owner of this instrument undoubtably ran a bowling alley.

Well, if the concertina is full of woodworm, then the only reason it is still in one piece is because the woodworm are holding hands! :lol:

Best not play too well, then.

If they applaud, the instrument will come apart.

And the mad driller has struck again! This time, on a 50-button Lachenal from Chris Algar.

Daniel,

 

In this case I think they were probably inspired by all the German concertinas that were made with "trumpet holes" around the sides like that. They may also function as a kind of "monitor", to let the player hear better what he's doing! :unsure:

Dear Stephen,

Do you happen to have any layout diagrams for 50 button Anglos?

Thanks,

Neil
