  1. Thanks for the info. No Tedrow Standard or Edgely models on that list, though. Any ideas how they weigh in?
  2. Prior to buying my first anglo, I see that weight is a factor not to be overlooked, especially with carpal tunnel twinges. Could anyone tell me what would be considered a fair weight or too heavy? Especially, what is the weight of a Tedrow Standard or Edgely [or similar quality Morse] (wooden ends)? Also, as I have to think of my neighbours when making my music, and I don't imagine I'll be doing public performances, are the thee models I mention regarded as 'quiet'? I've read references here to some anglos being 'nice and loud', which wouldn't interest me. I prefer a nice mellow 'sea s
  3. But it doesn't have CD. As an absolute beginner myself I wouldn't find a book without CD or DVD very helpful. In fact, in these supermultimedia days, I can't imagine why any music tutor book wouldn't have accompanying audio or visual.
  4. Could someone clarify the relative hierarchy of anglo concertinas, as I find it a bit confusing. Stagis and Rochelles etc., are the lower end, right? Then come hybrids such as Tedrow and Edgely. But aren't these quality makes? What makes them hybrid and does that term imply some devaluation of quality? What makes are considered above these (i.e. 'real' anglo concertinas)?
  5. A huge thanks for all the great advice so far, everybody! It's good to hear from other (ex-) newbies who recently were in my position, and seasoned players, too. My usual inclination with musical instruments (beautiful enough in their own right before you even touch 'em...) is to get the best right off, and I'm inclined to do this with the anglo concertina as well. The only caution I have is that it might be wise to see if and how my carpal tunnel problem works with the new instrument. From this perspective it might make sense to hold back, go with the Rochelle (positive and neg point

  7. Hello I'm thinking of taking up the 30-key Anglo Concertina and would appreciate it greatly if members could clarify and give advice on some things I'm unclear about. I have read the forum/archives and have learned a lot from that, but still need advice on the following: Basically, I did buy an Anglo about 5 years back, intending to get stuck in then. Unfortunately, the concertina (a Stagi, I think) turned out to be very poor quality (for around $750...) and had faults that led to my having to return it. There wasn't anything else in that price range available, so I just gave up and mo
