Airtime: after going round every stall at the Sidmouth festival, the Tommy was the only box not requiring Bulworker type pressure to function and was close to my concertina for response.
Your opening statement is of course true  ;D

Les: yes I find the difference between comfort and tight to be minimal. Glad someone else agrees!
