  1. Thanks to everyone for the advice! I went ahead and bought the Rochelle (partially because my income wouldn't support much more than $300 or $400); we'll see how it goes. I guess I've sort of locked myself into a Morse concertina later on, but they look like splendid instruments, so I think I can live with that.
  2. Since this spring, I've been playing a 60+ year-old 20-button anglo of indeterminate make and am starting to chafe. The action isn't great, several of the reeds squeak, and of course it would be nice to have a couple more sharps and flats to play around with. So I'm looking around for a 30-button concertina that wouldn't destroy a college student's budget. I found a 30-button Rochelle through buttonbox.com for $350 and they offer full purchase value refund when trading it in for one of their Morse & Co. concertinas. Should I go ahead and buy it, look for a better instrument/price, or stick with what I've got for now?
