  1. Really? I thought it was a concertina forum, a useful tool for players, not a moralism temple. Anyway, I didn't mean to offend anyone: sorry about that. In my language, say stuff like that is not a big deal, I just translated literally. Thank you for the answers. They're precious to me because where I live there aren't concertina players and experts to ask, nor instruments to try out.
  2. Hi, everybody! I'd like to buy a good ANGLO concertina (my range is around 4000 € max; I'm in Europe - Italy; I play mostly ITM, however I want the possibility to play more genres). 1) Now, I'm very confused about advantages, drawbacks and all the countless factors. Well, I'm not expert but I know the charateristics I want, which I'll try to explain: nasal sound, concertina steel reeds (of course), Jeffries system (or similar, just to have an important note such as C# on the pull and on the push), possibly 7 fold bellows (--> it has to be very responsive), it has to work for the rest of my life (as I'm not rich at all; I mean: if I but a Shakespeare, will it last as a new Suttner?). I'm not interested in the historical value and also I don't need the very very very best with differences from the standard timbre that only the most trained ears can hear. Did I explain myself? 2) Do you know if there are some underrated minor AC makers around - whose instruments are high quality and cost less than the most popular ones? 3) What do you think about these concertinas, compared to the others? Why is the price so "low"? Is it about the sound, the volume, the "less softer" bellows... or what? http://www.marcusmusic.co.uk/concertinas.html 4) So... what would you recommend: dig deeper in the nerdy world of concertinas systems and stuff while I wait for the right occasion on 2nd hand sites or order a new instrument? I know it's a lot to ask. I still hope your expertise can help me and many others! Thanks a million
