Hi, I am a beginner looking for a used concertina in good working order. I am looking at other sites, listings and new options but at this time as a woman dealing with unemployment in the US due to covid, hoping there is someone out here who has one they no longer play and would like to rehome to a hopeful enthusiast with some time on her hands. Happy to pay a reasonable amount, not trying to make anyone feel undervalued or ask anyone to give me anything for free :3 Please get in touch if you have anything I might be interested in. Edit: I am currently looking for something $500 USD or less; used or new.
Hello, All: I've been spending all my musical energy for the last 10 years pushing my kids to play fiddle and I finally decided to start nagging myself to practice instead. So I'm buying a c/g 30 button Anglo concertina to play Irish music for myself and stop living through my kids! I've found the Button Box to be such a great resource to find out about the differences between instruments, especially since they have videos of the various concertinas they offer. But often I find the clicking and clacking of the buttons distracting. Is this usual in all instruments, or just the less expensive ones? And is there a brand/type that y'all prefer? I love the idea of a sort of mellow/brignt tone, if that's even possible? Thanks for any insight you can offer.
