  1. Hi all, I've just purchased a 24 key rosewood Lashenal from Barleycorn Concertinas-looks good and sounds great. Thanks to all on the discussion forum for the valuable advice. Regards JRC
  2. Thanks for the very informative answers Greg-very very helpfil JRC
  3. I'll have to save then, my kidneys are my fallback pension fund JRC
  4. I've been told (over the phone) that they are with the 1st and 2nd row if that makes sense, but the person concerned did'nt know what the extra keys were. Thanks for the infomation about C# JRC well, 24 buttons arent very common. it doesnt make sense that they wouldnt have a 3rd row, but who knows. the only note you need for irish music is c#. the others are just icing on the cake.
  5. Hi all, As a would be beginner (and still without an instrument!) I was looking at a reasonable quality 20 key anglo. The plan being to upgrade to a 26/30 key anglo as and when I could afford it. I've been told about 24 key anglos-is this good compromise? What is the key layout, I've been told the extra keys are not on the top row (as per 30's) and would it be suitable for Irish music? All comments would be welcome JRC
  6. Thanks Daniel, I'll see what Barleycorn concertinas can offer. Regards JRC
  7. Hi all, I've been offered first refusal on a 30 key lachenal- all original, including the case and in very good condition. It has brass reeds though and I've been told this is not ideal. woood it be such a drawback for a total beginner. Also what should I be paying for it -to be fair to both parties. thanks
