  1. Oeh! I came across some of his videos while researching! Indeed fantastic! The guy's really good! And I liked seeing the improvement compared to the older videos Make's psmooze's offer sound even more interesting @Blue eyed sailor - Hah! That is quite funny indeed And thank you! I hope to sort something out eventually as well ^^ Or
  2. Heya! Thanks for your replies guys! Much appreciated I now understand why the 30's are so expensive then...I'm not dismissing the 20 button models though, just figured I'd start with the most versatility possible, it also seems like it's kind of hard to find concertinas around here overall (Netherlands) You have a very interesting path! How do you like the 20 button Lachenal then? Would you place it superior to something like the Rochelle / Stagi / Hohner AC 3060? I looked into the Rochelle but even that is very hard to find here... I wonder about the Hohner AC 3060 that psmooze is offering (thank you by the way!)...I haven't seen too much about Hohner concertinas, but I hear it might be a re-banded Stagi / Bastari model? Is that bad or good? If you guys were in my shoes (and I guess you WERE indeed at some point ;P), what would you have done? what would you have started with? I'm watching eBay, marktplaats.nl (2nd hand site) and the Buy &Sell section like a hawk for something that might fit or for some tidbits of insight...but aside from psmooze's interesting offer, I didn't really come across anything else other than some unknown brands & a couple of more expansive Stagi's... Once again, any reply, tip or recommendation will be very much appreciated Or
  3. Greetings! I accidentally watched a video with a concertina demonstrated in it and fell in love with the sound I have been reading all over the forum & internet for quite some time now, trying to learn more about concertinas before purchasing one. I believe that the kind I'd like to start with is the 30 buttons Anglo Concertina...I have a thing for irish / authentic / unusual / folk / medieval / fantasy music and so on...same for for sea shanties and the like...I've heard that this one is more appropriate for this kind of music. (I want to compose a tune along with my banjo and include it in my animation movie that I've been working on for over 2 years ) Unusual / exotic / cultural and more vintage types of musical instruments always attracted me and I've so far taught myself to play the Banjo, Kalimba, Jaw Harp, Harmonica, Mountain Dulcimer and couple of others...They each have a unique character...I love it and feel the same towards the concertina Unfortunately my budget is quite limited (up to around 350 euros or so) so I guess that I can't afford some of the amazing boxes I've seen out there...Of course I'd like something authentic and vintage / antique..but unless I get lucky, perhaps this is something for later on? I've been trying to research which one would be the best beginner's concertina for me that would still produce good & satisfying sounds...I had a look at the Wren, the Scarletti, Carreg Las, Excalibur and some others that I've come across...I'm finding it extremely hard to make a decision...and finding one in my price range isn't a walk in the park either so far I currently live in the Netherlands...If anybody has some tips / recommendations / info for me, or could send me to a place where I could purchase a good one, It'd be highly appreciated Some links I've been looking at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cerres-Las-Anglo-concertina-31-button-CG-Italian-reeds-with-tags-/191611131796?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2c9ce9d794 http://www.gear4music.com/Woodwind-Brass-Strings/Concertina-by-Gear4music-C-G-Ex-Demo/1AOH#full-des http://www.hjmusic.nl/product/concertina-2-x-15-knoppen-bruin/ Thanks ahead for any reply, tip, trick recommendation and tidbit of info! Or (P.S - I apologize in advance if this is not the right place to post this )
