Tutorial: custom Accordeon/Concertina, by Brig. Brick

Friday, September 10th, 2010

One of our more devoted members, Brig. Brick, brings us a very easy tutorial on how to make an accordeon/concertina in only a few minutes time.

All you need are two flat tiles and some deskapparel like paper, scissors and glue!

Click here to discuss the tutorial about how to make a LEGO accordeon or concertina!

Ready in 10 minutes or less!

Wikipedia: A concertina is a free-reed musical instrument, like the variousaccordions and the harmonica. It has a bellows and buttons typically on both ends of it. When pressed, the buttons travel in the same direction as the bellows, unlike accordion buttons which travel perpendicularly to it. Also, each button produces one note, while accordions typically can produce chords with a single button.

The concertina was developed in England and Germany, most likely independently. The English version was invented in 1829 by Sir Charles Wheatstone and a patent for an improved version was filed by him in 1844. The German version was announced in 1834 by Carl Friedrich Uhlig.

Poll: Which LEGO Sharks would you like to see in future Pirate Sets?

Friday, August 20th, 2010

Mister Phes wants to know!

For the 2009 Pirate Theme the LEGO Group used the newer, larger sharks which first appeared in the Agent sets.

  • Would you prefer to see a return to classic sharks if future LEGO Pirate sets are released?
  • Or maybe it should be the newer shark all the way.
  • Or perhaps it could be a mixture of both, depending on the set
  • Or maybe the LEGO Group should

But how do Pirate LEGO fans feel about this change?
