Why Buy from the Irish Concertina Company?

Why Buy from the Irish Concertina Company and not another brand


Why buy an Irish made concertina? This is a question I am asked daily…

My Answer:

Our Irish made concertinas are excellent quality, especially the design structure. The sound quality is engineered to a very high standard and compares exceedingly well with other concertina brands.
Take the Eirú for example, the Eirú has Engineered Angled Reeds which are clamped (without getting too technical) and this creates the old Classical Concertina Sound.

We are open and honest about the different types of reeds we use on all of our models whereas many German companies do not specify the types of reeds they use.

I source the reeds from the same reputable source as the German makers and in the making of our prototypes we experimented using different angling sizes and the finished product is the culmination of all of our trials.
