One of my favourite sets of all time, that. I was quite disappointed to hear that the mounts were an aftermarket addition!

Yes, somebody went to town on that one. As a one off, it had a strange fascination. I wonder if, eventually, anyone got it going in a satisfactory way. At the time (twenty five years or so ago) it either had, supposedly, a lovely tone or it was in tune, but never both at the same time. During the ten years or so I often saw it, it wasn't in playing condition.

Not a conversion but a swap of tenor and bari reg positions.

And quite possibly I scanned one of the slides upside down when I did a test run on the medium format slides a few years ago after getting the flim scanner :oops:

This is probably more like it:

Chanter looks like one of those Eighteen Moloney/Egan chanters with the mounts swapped out.

It's a Kenna, the only piece bearing a maker's mark (the body of the set is not Kenna but a convincing case has been made for it being a remounted Ryan).
