The cheap concertinas that I have (old Bastari) are made using plywood.  I don't have the idea that using a different wood would have any appreciable change in the sound on them, but does the wood on the better concertinas have any affect on the sound?  I seem to remember noticing that the reed plate in one of the pictures seemed to be beech.


Does type of wood have as much difference on a concertina as it does in a guitar or a violin?




PS.  I just found the thread from 2006 discussing tonewoods.  Additional information, though, would be welcome.
