Tedrow Concertina Tour 2003
I pulled the concertina off the road a few times to check the log book, and to make adjustments to the instrument. The links below are to the scanned original logs.
The combined comments and suggestions have been used to design the 2004 line of Tedrow Concertinas:
The Tour Concertina featured in the Southern music issue of Oxford American
|In May of 2003 I built a concertina with the intention of
sending it to concertina players across the United States. The goal
of the "Tour" was several fold. Along with the obvious marketing
angle, I had a very sincere interest in the opinions of players opinions
of my instrument, its sound, playability, tone etc. Additionally I
hoped to find a consensus on the desires of players all over the country.
The Concertina was on the road for about 8 months traveling between musicians on both coasts and in the Great Lakes region. Each player was asked to either enter in the log book or to email me with their comments good bad or otherwise.
