When two straps are not enough
« on: August 26, 2008, 08:42:03 PM »

Following on from the "how many straps is good" thread I though I would share some photos of my chum Dave who I see every year on the Thames Valley Morris Cotswold's Tour. Dave has little use of his left arm yet plays a modified Castagnari Tommy for morris. As you  can see he has 3 straps, the normal two but mounted on the bass end plus another one on the treble end. He uses his right hand to both play the keyboard and move the bellows. The box has a modified air button on the back of the treble keyboard, work carried out by Martin Banks of Oakwood.
