neilfein Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 I'm currently looking for a beginner English concertina, and have zeroed in on the Concertina Connection Jackie or Jack. They both sound quite good to me, at least from the audio files I've heard online. The Jackie and the Jack are the same instrument, but one is a treble and the other a baritone. Both use accordion reeds. While I'm partial to lower tones in general, I'd probably be quite happy with either instrument. Are there any particular issues I should keep in mind when choosing between the two instruments? For example, I understand that chords need to be more widely spaced to sound good on a concertina. Is this problem more pronounced with a baritone concertina? Are there any other issues I should be aware of? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
