Tradmadman Posted October 1, 2017 Share Posted October 1, 2017 Hi I am hoping some can help with advice, suggestions and opinions. All welcome. Having played ITM on the concertina some years ago, for about a year after some previous years on a variety of instruments, I would like to take it back up again, and would appreciate thoughts on a new concertina as I no longer have one. I don't have any great need for sessions so I'm thinking that would preclude the need for volume and possibly responsiveness in the way of speed. From research the best options seem to include the Edgley and Morse makes. I found a thread dating back to 2007 where comparisons were made and at that time Richard Morse seemed to mention that they might be doing some tweaking to make their Morse Ceili more suited to ITM? Has this happened? Would members be so kind as to offer on opinions on which is better or is it fairly equal? I did manage to ask one teacher who admitted to bias in favour of the Morse thinking the Edgley to be 'clunky'??? I see a Connors concertina for sale locally, would that be worth consideration with its genuine concertina reeds? Provided of course all was in good condition. Or would a new concertina be a better investment? Thank you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
