  1. Having it placed on the left leg you can easily free your right hand to reach your glass or cigarettes, for right-handed people that is of course.
  2. Hello, some other idea here: Please consider that a reed doesn´t produce a "proper" sound like an (electric) organ, it´s more or less like a bell, meaning every single note is put together by different high and deep sounds. So one perfectly tuned concertina may play well with another, but only on the push or pull. Or well with one and not with another. Acutally you never know. As well the resonance of the instrument is playing a role - a reed may sound outside the instrument perfect but put in again out of tune. have a good sunday Christian
  3. These days you can buy a turntable that plugs right into your USB port, if you want. I haven't tried them. Tom Hi folks, There is as well another easy device which connects the computer with the headphone slot of any player. That is used via the sound card - found that pretty easy. Christian
  4. Well, I played the concertina first (english system) and went than to the accordion. I´ll tell you why. Coming from the organ I decided to take a little break. Getting to know the concertina was wonderful getting to know an instrument using reeds... Playing Irish and English tunes for quite a while I came across the the accordion. Meanwhile I play M3 - the possibility to play left and right hand like on a piano. And guess what? It made me more sensitive to play the concertina in a matter of technique. Well, it sort of remained the same: the wind gives the heart to the instrument but the technique gives the opportunity to express it. Christian
  5. Hello, I can´t give a comment concerning the instrument, I never played a Bastari, not even seen one in the real live. But, I can´t image playing a concertina with a tremolo - to me that sounds wrong. It would be a combination of two things which don´t belong together. Yes, I never heard this type of brand but still I would prefer a single reeded instrument. Christian
