  1. Concertina has been sold. Donation has been made.
  2. The action is riveted, unlike their cheaper model, the "Wren". It is very responsive. I didn't post any audios or videos because the McNeela website has several videos of Caitlin Nic Gabhann and Michael O Raghallaigh demonstrating the Swan. It also shows more photos of the concertina including the action.
  3. I began studying Irish Traditional Music about 7 months ago. I've been enjoying it thoroughly, and I wanted to upgrade to a faster concertina. I live in Wisconsin.

  5. 30 Buttons, C/G, Wheatstone Layout Hard Case Included (not blocked) Selling to Upgrade This concertina was purchased new in July, 2020. It has been played regularly since then. The original vinyl straps have been replaced with more comfortable and durable leather straps from The Button Box. All reeds are in tune. The instrument is in perfect working order and still looks like new. $600 + shipping
  6. You should contact McNeela in any case. They would be able to tell you whether or not it is a simple matter of flipping the reed plate over and whether doing something like that yourself would void the warranty. If the reed plate is waxed in place rather than bolted, it's probably not something you'd want to do yourself.
  7. I live in Wisconsin with forced air heating which can get pretty dry in winter. I’ve been using a Venta brand room humidifier. It consists of a slowly rotating plastic drum with multiple fins which is partially immersed in water as a fan blows the air above it. It puts about a gallon of water per day into the room air where I practice. It’s able to keep the RH at about 40%, but that’s about it. There’s no way it could reach 50% unless I bought another one. The nice thing about it is that there are no pads to change and no dust problems.
