I've fallen in love with the concertina and have decided to take the plunge on a starter instrument I can keep enjoying for a long time. As such, I'd be looking for a second-hand Marcus Standard, an Irish Concertina Company Clare, a Concertina Connection Minstrel, a good Blackthorn, a Morse Céilí or a high fast-reeded, rivet-actioned vintage squeezebox. I don't mind accordion reeds nor aesthetic condition, the most important thing to me is that the action be smooth and fast, the reeds sweet and fast to sound and the overall playability to be excellent.
I live in FInland and will gladly pay in advance, including shipping costs from anywhere in Europe. I wouldn't like to pay more than 1,5k€ for the instrument, including delivery.
