Re: Melody Maker vs Paddy Richter

Will your valves be available soon? They will fit the orchestra s too right?

Re: Melody Maker vs Paddy Richter

I have an E melody maker. I know that's not very useful for Irish. I have been able to play it to some extent. I practiced Scale Sequences & Melodic Patterns with it till I was blue in the face.

Melody Maker vs Paddy Richter

Can Irish music be played just as easily on a Melody Maker as it can on a Paddy Richter?

Re: Installing powercomb on 260

I got the holes drilled ok. The comb is installed, sort of. I don't have anything to sand them down flush. I tried adjusting them before tightening but it didn't do a lot. http://media.angelfire.lycos.com/preview/7723667/1024x1024-2492152.jpg I'll have to go intown tomorrow and get something to sand...

Re: Installing powercomb on 260

I don't understand why these nails are to be put back in - instead of screws. Why install any screws at all?

Re: Installing powercomb on 260

Where would I get screws if I wanted to replace them? Would I need the same size as came with the powercomb?

Re: Installing powercomb on 260

I have a packet of 5 screws that came with the powercomb. I was wondering what to do with the two nails on either end, (four total)

Buffers for 260

I thought I heard Brendan post something in one of his videos about making buffers. Does anyone remember seeing that? I got a 260, it's a little leaky and the slider keeps moving around once in a while, sometimes it leaks there. Anyway, I took the mouthpiece off and there is only one buffer in there...

Re: Installing powercomb on 260

I got a used bench top drill press specifically for this project. $50. My friends say it will come in handy.
