A New Concertina Is Born

Recommended Posts

I am proud to announce the birth of a new concertina.


After a long wait, I just received my new Suttner English – a metal ended tenor. I haven’t had a chance to put it through its full paces, but my first impressions are that it is wonderful. It is very responsive, the reeds sound clear with a “honky” sound compared to my Wheatstone. (Although I haven’t had them side by side yet.)


I’ll play it a while, and then write up a review comparing it to my other concertinas, maybe post a picture or two. I just completed the first stage of new instrument acquisition, lustful admiration. As you see I am moving to the next, uncontrolled bragging. Next comes over-playing. Full acceptance will take time and patience.
