On this forum, I always read “stay away from Chinese concertina”…
Then I stumble upon this video https://www.youtube....h?v=XXJBuYxvZmU , I like it a lot !
And I have a Lachenal (which is said better) but I cannot play that tune, running out of air
Look how long the below is on that Chinese concertina
The sound is also pretty good for this style of music.
My conclusion is that Chinese model can be a good choice… All depend on what you want to do !
I agree Irish tune won’t do it, but slow tune like this one above sound pretty nice with that warm and fuzzy sound.
Some Chinese concertina might be better than other (Sunrise, Scarlatti, Steinbach…), I have no idea.
So I say Chinese concertina does have some advantage
That’s it ! J
