Best Beginner Concertina with value for your money in mind.
One teacher in particular has been telling me for as long as he is buying instruments from me, that the beginner child or adult needs no more than the basic instrument to get started. Mick Brophy says that the basic can be the €350 or €700 depending on your pocket, but no one need spend more than this to get started.
Once the student finds that the instrument has done its time and they can’t progress any further with the concertina, than it’s time to find a real instrument.The real concertina Mick is referring to is a hand made instrument and not an expensive and overpriced Chinese Model.
|Action||Shared Mechanism||Single Lever Riveted (smooth & trouble free)|

|The key is the C+G 30 button which is the standard key used in Irish Traditional music.|
The concertina comes with 6 fold bellows and adjustable straps and comes in a choice of Soft Bag or Hard Case.
This concertina is very good value for money, easy to play and with a high quality sound that improves with time.
|We recommend the Swift Concertina for players starting out who would like something with a bit more quality than the basic Tina Brown. The Swift has riveted action, which is very responsive and free of problems.|
