ragtimer Posted April 12, 2007 Author Share Posted April 12, 2007 How about if the paddle thing that separated the two bellows were an upside down T with the vertical part sticking up between your legs and your thighs holding down the horizontal part against the chair. The upside down T shape would make the paddle very stable. There could be considerable stress if both hands wanted to move left or right together. That's a very practical suggestion, Jody. My own alternative was to have the paddle go down to the floor, and be clamped between the player's feet, shins, and knees. You version could be extended to go under hte player's butt. All worthwhile to make it really playable. But in any case the player must be seated (which I have to be anyway, to handle the bulky bellows on my Stagi Hayden Duet The whole thing sounds kind of clumsy and not a very elegant solution but I think it would work and could be very cool to play. I think that you would have to take it apart to put it in a case for transport. Airport security would certainly look at you funny. Glad you think it would work -- your opinion means a lot. Yes, it would have to come apart for easy transport. Another extra piece of design work, how to do that. And don't airport types already look at our boxes kind of funny? --Mike K.
