new box
« on: January 16, 2014, 03:52:08 PM »

Of choccies, plays an alpine type tune when you squeeze the bellows that sets of a little sensor. At £1 from the charity shop. The cheapest box on the market.

Here's a more reliable source.

and here's the larger version.

I think Nick might be out tonight, so we'll have to wait until tomorrow to get some thoughts on bellows. Provided he doesn't stand too close to an apple tree and get shot.

Never made it to the Wassail, ended up in Poole hospital again wired up to some amazing machinery .
 Even though the Albrecht and ( unloaded) Cogswell& Harrison and jig dolls were ready to go.
 They let me out again in the evening and still no positive results.
 Look up Cogswell and Harrison, they didn't make melodeons, but they certainly made 12 Bore shotguns

You really MUST get well!

I'm a Yorkie!
My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.
