Eirú Concertina

The Eirú Concertina


The Eirú Concertina made it’s debut at the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil in Drogheda this year, and we were blown away by the reaction and positive feedback recieved from players of all levels.


About the Eirú Concertina

The Eirú Concertina is the highest quality Irish made Concertina available. The smooth responsive action, beautiful sound and stunning appearance are some of the many qualities of this top of the range instrument.


The Reeds

The Eirú has brass plated, singular, clamped Concertina reeds. These reeds are fitted into dovetailed slots on a maple reedpan, which is eventually sealed using chamois leather.

The special feature of the reeds on the Eirú is the inside angling. We have specially engineered an angle on the inside of the reed shoe which allows for better air flow, and thus providing an increase in sound quality and response.

The Eirú comes in a variety of exotic hardwoods including Wenge (dark almost black), Maple (white) and Rosewood (deep red). Depending on your wood choice, a contrasting inlay is added to the frame. The design on the end frame is very intricate with a line etching added.

There is the option of a drone button on the Eirú. Our standard drone is C/F but custom requests are considered.

The Playability

 

The Eirú Concertina is an effortless instrument to play. This is due to a combination of several different factors. The button action is set to an equal pressure throughout, meaning that all 30 keys have the same feel and quick response. The riveted round post levers also contribute to the quality of the action.

The 7 fold leather bellows are slimmer than most other Concertinas allowing the instrument to feel “free” without any restrictions. The padded leather straps also help in providing the player with a comfortable experience.
