Any New Swan concertina owner ? in General Concertina Discussion Posted August 27, 2021 I have enjoyed having a Swan concertina for the past year. It was and is a great instrument to learn and develop on. I would recommend it. I'm sure the more skilled one is, the more control one would have in producing good tone, ornaments, etc. But a more skilled player is more likely to own a more complex instrument. So, for beginners or intermediate/occasional players, it provides a lot of capacity for growth. It won't stop you from learning tunes or developing your style.
