I've just looked up what I posted a few months ago immediately after playing a Morse and an Edgeley on the same day. Both nice boxes, nothing wrong with either but my personal preference was for the Morse.

 

I make it a rule to take every opportunity to try different makes and models of Anglo so that I can develop a feel for when making comparisons.

 

Either a Morse or an Edgeley would be a nice box, one you could be proud of and which you would enjoy playing. If you can't get to play both, compare prices, availability, delivery times and any options in terms of finish, design etc. and decide what is important to you. You won't go wrong with either.

If you can, try both - as Mike said, that's the best way to choose.

 

One observation: I've owned both Morse and Edgley boxes. Both are great instruments, but the Morse is significantly lighter, if that's a factor for you.

With a Morse, it is not only easier to play from the dots - but also from the dashes.

Especially tunes with codas.

And apologies to Christine. In case it is hard for you to read, we think we are being funny with English words. I hope we do not frighten you away from concertina!

 

Bon chance,

Ken

To clarify: what he was spelling in Morse code was "LOL."
