Subject: THE CONCERTINA MUSEUM IS NOW OPEN
From: GUEST,Chris
Date: 01 Nov 11 - 09:07 AM

The website, which is now accessible at www.concertinamuseum.com features Neil Wayne's entire Concertina Museum Collection and is the first major on-line resource for the study of over 380 rare and early examples of this uniquely-English instrument, of its players, and of their bands, music and images from the past 180 years. The collection also contains Charles Wheatstone's own research items, many related instruments, early music and tutors, and over 4000 original photographs and written data about the instrument, its players, bands and its role during the past two centuries of musical culture. The new web site is designed to be an open-access database that will facilitate access and encourage research upon all matters pertaining to the concertina and its history.

Well folks, that's what the press release says. But just to say that Neil, Wes Williams and I have been working on this for a couple of years now, and we hope you will find it useful.

That is excellent news - I am sure it has taken a lot of hard work.

I suppose one man's obsession is another man's museum :-) Well done Neil and collaborators.

I'm probably being my usual thick self, but I went in and had a look and although it says you can search for stuff I couldn't see how to do it.

And the list of concertina makers doesn't seem to include Jeffries.

But yes, the idea is great.

It does take a minute or two. Anything underlined and blue is a link. Not sure about the searching.

A Jeffries nowadays goes for an absolute fortune - I suspect why there aren't many in the collection - and it is about Wheatstone - it says that.

I'll ask Neil to comment.

Hi
Will - thanks for adding the clickie.
as Dave has commented - Jeffries are not instruments that Neil wanted to take out of the players domain.
There are a couple of Jeffries owners who have said that they can make details of their instruments available and when possible will be added to the Museum database
The Museum is not totally about Wheatstone - its just that they were Neil's first interest/love. there are many makers mostly from the victorian period - English, Anglo duets and some others!
The search program is being developed at the moment

I'm looking forward to exploring the site.

Sorry to say, the links to the Horniman (other than the main one) on The origins of the collections page are defunct. Looks like the Horniman site has been reworked.

Magnificent work and material. Just one little problem. The background photo seems to be present in all pages and this sadly makes the text difficult to read. I would suggest having it only on the start page and skip it elsewhere.

I second that, Guest,Bert. Either that or put an opaque background behind the text, leaving the photo in the margins.

I've got one like this up for adoption. Fine condition, wants a couple of reeds touched up and some of the (restored) gaskets are a bit tight to overcome the light springs of this genre. Sweet little parlour instrument that is surplus to my needs.
