Dear Grant,

interesting, are distracting me from my other work messages. Could you
please remove me from your mailing list as I'm not sure I have much to
In the meantime I am trying to get my hands on some info and photos of the
wonderful bass concertina for you. And I will continue to visit your website
which is a treasure trove of fascinating sonic delights.

Thanks and bye for now,

Matt Dennis

P.S. Check out the free reed 'Foot bass' at this website:
