Bob Bolton Chromatic Harmonica any info?-Bandmaster Deluxe (23) RE: Chromatic Harmonica any info?-Bandmaster Deluxe 03 Feb 13

Err ... G'day again,

Ummm ... I seem to have slipped the name of the wrong maker of the wrong intricate free reed instrument into my last posting ... it was, of course, Alberts Music. Now representatives for Music, Artists & Song Writers --- J. Albert & Son Pty Ltd that ran the iconic Australian 'free reed' brand "Boomerang".

My fingers briefly try to conjure up "Stanley" ... (err... presumably the equally iconic repairer and maker ... of that other box of intricate 'free reeds' - the Concertina. "John Stanley "The Concertina Doctor" of Bathurst (New Sout Wales country city) was the repairer ...more than a century ago of my first Anglo concertina and then manufacturer ... and probably did repair the odd mouth organ as well ... but did not create a branding for them!
