jimbo77 Posted November 14, 2009 Share Posted November 14, 2009 Hi, I'm James from canada... and I can't play hardly an instrument (grin) Thanks for this forum ! Seriously, I can't figure out stringed instruments at all. Thankfully HARMONICA I can learn and LOVE Irish and Scottish music. I saw a performance with a concertina and was in love.... Although they do look complicated to learn, I may be ok with TAB, and this forum, haha. Anyway, I'm here to ask a question. I KNOW.... everyone says stay away from Ebay, and a beginner unit is $300-400.... Well, I honestly can't pay it. I've got $100. So, it's learn, or not. That in mind, I know a $1500 unit will sound better, etc... but can people weigh in on the playability and quality of these two units. BONETTI 20 Button MORELLI 30 Button http://shop.vendio.com/usamusicsupply/item/2030119639/index.html That's the USA seller, also is on ebay with a BIG Perfect Rating. Ad says these are Italian Engineered (so yeah, maybe italian specs at a chinese plant, but so are hohner, samick, and every other company, even the made in US ones...) And they are warranted. So again, I know it's lower-er grade, but will it hold up, anyone actually use one of these -- especially the BONETTI SECOND QUESTION: I LOVE Irish reels and slow airs, as well as Scottish pipes and slow airs. I was learning it on the harmonica too. I also love Klezmer music That in mind....... 30 Button Anglo VS 20 Button Anglo ? Again, I know enough to know a 30 is same layout as 20 with 10 more accent keys...so you can learn basics and have a more advanced unit in the 30. But, the 20 would be plainer to see and learn and is a little cheaper I am content to only buy what I need. I don't need upgrades, or what if down the road, if it will play what I want. You know? I saw a little 20 Button on Youtube playing Pogues music - Awesome ! But again, I don't know enough to know better. PLEASE ASAP some thoughts if you can. THANK YOU !!
