I am finally looking to upgrade to a mid-range concertina after a couple of years with the Rochelle.
Based on my budget (circa 2k to 2.5k) the mid-range instruments I have been looking at the Morse Ceili, Clover, Marcus and Claddagh. I have only been able to try a couple of these and cant get my hands on a Morse or Clover to try out. I have listened to as many clips out there on YouTube to get a feel for them. At the moment I was edging towards the Morse.
Would anyone be able to advise on what would be a good mid-level concertina which is a little quieter than the others.
For the most part it will be me playing on my own and as its to take quite a few years for me to progress I would like to participate in Sessions without being 'too' loud and annoy others.
Is there any other options I should consider ? Is there a mid-level option around the 3k mark that would be worth stretching for ?
I should mention that it is a C/G Anglo Concertina for Irish Trad that I am referring to
Thanks for any suggestions, Dave
