Musicman Praise for a new concertina (37) RE: Praise for a new concertina 27 Jul 01


oh wow.. more concertina efficionatos (sp?)

I am currently playing a wheatstone 48 c. 1890's that has come down through the family since the early 1900's.. sweet instrument.. love the sound and love playing the instrument.,
I just recently purchases a Lachenal Duet from a friend c. 1879, again another sweet instrument.... the first problem was to figure out what fingering pattern it used....3-4 different patterns for lachenal! Found out it's the crane system, and have been plugging away ever since. Even had two new cases made for them (one had case one didn't)
no wrist straps on either instrument, although i've seen them, but the duet has sort of a strap over the back of the hand.....it helps...... I have a friend who has wrist straps on his 48 wheatstone....

anyway.. love the instruments... just wish there were more players in the area..... only two on the wheatstone that i know of and one other duet player (different fingering!)

anyway.. keep on playing....
