  1. I have been playing McNeela Wren for a couple of years and it is no longer working for me. Slow action, sticking valves and leaking. I am ready to upgrade and trying to decide between three concertinas. I lean toward purchase from Concertina Connection since I am located in the Northwest, as they are. I am too far away to travel and try different concertina. I want an Anglo C/G. Does anyone have experience with the Minstrel, the Minstrel with Wakker bellows, and the Clover?
  2. I recently purchased this beginner concertina and have been having a ball. The 4th right hand C row button (c'/a) started to hang partially open occasionally. The button would slant sideways a bit and get jammed. I could wiggle it a bit and it would straighten out and behave just about long enough for me to get through another verse of Drunken Sailor. You can clearly see the misalignment of the button in the first 2 pictures. I researched. Other owners have seen this and needed to adjust how the button sits. Another owner found that some glue that keeps the rubber sleeve
  3. Hi folks I've been playing my wren 2 that I got for Christmas and been very pleased with it so far - seems very good for the money [£350] to me. Have just hit my first problem - the first button on the C row right hand side has started sticking -or rather clicking! peering through the holes on the side it looks like the lever isn't staying in place and is getting snagged by an adjacent lever. I can wiggle the buttons and free it up but it goes back after a few presses. Any advice? I'm reluctant to take the end off without knowing what I'm doing! Many Thanks Geoff
  4. I have a Wren concertina fron McNeela in Ireland. I have had it about two years. Not long after I got it one key would sometimes stick open. In 2018 I was in the hospital for 101 days and in bed about 6 months. When I finally felt like playing my concertina had about 5 buttons sticking. When some buttons are pressed, they catch other buttons and open them as well. Does anyone have any advice? i am fairly handy with tools, but don’t know what the insides looks like. The Wren has good reviews, I have not been happy with mine.
  5. I just purchased my first concertina. I'm a rookie just learning how to play so while my talent for the instrument is in it's infant stage my love and enthusiasm is incredibly high. I just got my all-black Wren concertina from irishmusik.com and am practicing the basics. My question is whether the Wren uses a Jeffries or Wheatstone layout. I'm still very new and a little tip would be nice. Thanks to all for reading this and to anyone who responds.
  6. Greetings! I accidentally watched a video with a concertina demonstrated in it and fell in love with the sound I have been reading all over the forum & internet for quite some time now, trying to learn more about concertinas before purchasing one. I believe that the kind I'd like to start with is the 30 buttons Anglo Concertina...I have a thing for irish / authentic / unusual / folk / medieval / fantasy music and so on...same for for sea shanties and the like...I've heard that this one is more appropriate for this kind of music.
