I play them because I find their distinctive sound delightful, especially the chords. With the exception of models made in South Africa, the rest are of somewhat inferior quality compared to more traditional construction techniques. That hasn't stopped me playing them, you just have to replace them ever so often. LOL

Here is an example manufactured in East Germany https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIj4xcTtdXQ

I was looking for one in CG but everyone has a DG and AG. Don't think I want that. Thanks Ron

What Sean said!

It depends on the sound you want, which is often the sound your cultural environment expects, which in turn is often the sound that has emerged as suitable for the music of your culture. In Germany, the multi-reed 20-b concertinas are called "deutsche Konzertina" (German concertina), and they do suit German popular and folk music They are not as hard and piercing as English-built single-reeders, but not as fluttery and "oom-pah-y" as accordeons. A nice middle way!

 

Cheers,

John

I have a double reed and love the full sound of it. Thats why I wanted to try a triple reed. I found one in DG and one in AG but don't know if they are Higher in notes than a CG. I do want it to have the deep sound of a CG. You guys might be able to advise me as I am new to this. All my concertinas are in CG. Having trouble finding one as I guess most don't use them. I also have to keep the price down as I'm retired. Thanks Ron
