  1. If I worked hard enough, I could probably earn $400 for a concertina In a couple of months. If I tried to look for a vintage in that price range, would I actually find one? Or, would it be wiser to just get a Jackie? -Daniel
  2. Aside from the introductory line from Concertina Connection -- the Jack, Jackie, Rochelle, and Elise, -- all of the modern hybrids that I've tried have played as smoothly as and been of comparable size to their non-deluxe vintage counterparts. As for "traditional" sound, I'm not sure Jerome knows yet what that is. He was attracted to the concertina by the sound of a piano accordion. Would a new Jackie be better than a similarly priced vintage concertina? -Daniel
  3. I live in the southeast US, so if you hear of anything in my area could you let me know? Thanks! Daniel
  4. Unfortunately, I live in the US, so I won't be able to make it this time. Sounds like a lot of fun, though! -Daniel
  5. Thanks for sharing this, I have looked up some of the musicians, and I really like their music!
  6. Is this currently on Ebay? If not, do have a recent picture, and what is your asking price? Thanks, Daniel
  7. Although I would like to get a CBA, It is still out of my price range. I would like to try out the rental period. I didn't even know that was a possibility. It's been fun getting all of your replies. I have learned a lot!
  8. Thank you very much for your replies. They have really helped! I would like to play french music that is kind of jazzy. The particular music that I want to play comes from Disney's Ratatouille soundtrack. I am not sure wether they used an accordion or a concertina, but I like the look of the concertina better. The music is mostly melodic, and it doesn't use harmony or chords all that much. So, now that I think about it, the English might suit me better. I am fifteen years old, and my resources are limited. In my search for a good, inexpensive instrument, I have come across Concertina Connection. The Jackie looks like my favorite, so far. Are there any other choices that would fit my criteria better? -Daniel
  9. I am looking for my first concertina, and I am wondering which type I should get. What concertina could be learned most easily by a piano player? Does the duet play the same when drawn and compressed? And does it have higher notes on the right and lower on the left? If that's true, it sounds like that would be the easiest, right? I want to play fast scales, so can the Duet concertina do that? Thanks! Daniel
