Larryo Posted October 21, 2006 Share Posted October 21, 2006 Hi, Am playing c/g anglo for about a month now and making a good enough "go" of it for the time being, having had the tunes from a previously played string instument. I am aware of the huge waiting time for the better grade concertinas and because I feel that I want to continue playing for the foreseeable future, I should perhaps be thinking of ordering now. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what instruments might be the best. The reason I ask is that although I live in Ireland, I have very little access to the range of instruments already available and it will be next summer before the concertina festivals begin and by then the price will be gone up and six months will have passed. Obviously the Suttner is a big contender but I have heard it said that it tends towards the harsh ? Would the timber ended one be better? The sound clip on the Carroll seems to be a bit mellower and there is not much in the price. Does anyone know the waiting time on a Dipper? Although I know this can come in under the "how long is a piece of string" category and that everyone to their own, I would still welcome opinions as I really haven't a clue. All I know is that if a good one was available today, I would be talking very nicely to Mr Bank Manager and don't really want to wait six or seven years. All help will be appreciated. thank you.
