mandojoe Posted July 8, 2022 Share Posted July 8, 2022 Me: 70, retired music librarian, mandolin player (classical), piano player (sort of), have never played a concertina Goal: To record (at home via Audacity) mando/concertina duets (classical) for the amusement of my very forgiving friends What I am looking at online: 1) Restored Lachenal 62 key MacCann Duet; 2) Wheatstone restored 1965 English concertina, 48 keys. Because both are pricey (for me) I'm seeking advice instead of plunging in. My goal is to have an instrument that is not impossible to learn, that is versatile for both melody and/or accompaniment, and that will be satisfying enough to not send me off looking for something else in a year or two. I appreciate any thoughts you'd care to contribute. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
