rainbowman Posted March 19, 2019 Share Posted March 19, 2019 Hi, I want to take the next step and buy a new Anglo concertina. I'm playing a Stagi W 15 LN in G/D for couple of years now. Every time I attended a workshop the teacher told me that I am too good to play this instrument, because the response is too slow. But I like the sound of my Stagi. Yes, I like the sound, because it is a bit harsh and it fits to my music. I am playing a mixture of trad. Irish and also a lot of tunes humming out chords. The typical concertina sound is too soft and to shrill for me and too similar to a violin. I like the "distortion" of the Stagi. It feels like a rock organ (beside ITM I like 70th Rock and Punk, so I need this on my concertina too). What I am looking for? A concertina... ...in G/D ...with a harsh sound ...quick response ...up to 4000 € ...a bit customisation if possible (drone, button layout) ...black design (rock 'n' roll!) and customisable bellow papers (if possible) What do you think might match best to my search? - Sevenmount Concertinas (I really like these instruments, but Ralf doesn't take new orders at the moment) - Tedrow (as far as I have seen, this might be a good solution, but never played one) - Marcus (the design is a bit too standard, but the rest might fit) - Wolverton (heard some very nice sound samples) - Morse - Norman - Edgley (I have heard that they sound like Suttner's and what I absolutely don't like is the sound of a Suttner - sorry for this, its my opinion and I don't want to offend someone (its like eating Brussels sprouts)) - Irish Concertina Company Best, Michael Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
