Hi, wonder if any of you kind folks could suggest a good starter concertina for a 10 year old. Unfortunately cannot afford to spend a lot of money and have looked at so many online.  I have been told about the WREN but don't know anything about it. I am looking at 30 key c/g anglo concertinas.  I keep reading music forums and most people say that they wouldn't waste their money on the lower end models eg. staggi and should be looking at Wheatstones, Lachenals and Morse. However, if you don't have a lot of money, you don't have a lot of choice?

Does anyone know about the Wren or Booringwood models? Any help would be gratefully received.

Many thanks!

I've been told that you're better off getting a 2 row 20 key concertina of good quality than a 30 key in the price range you're talking about. Otherwise.. the buttons are noisy but a stagi can still produce good sound: 


Hi Boyen, thanks for your reply.  I see what you mean about the 20 key but the teacher I have line up says that a 30 key anglo is what she would prefer. Not having any knowledge of the concertina I am just going with her advice.  What to do!

Taming a new animal eh? If you allow me, my advice is to get a cheap instrument while you're learning, something where you can make mistakes without expensive consequences. Get a cheap Hohner 20 keys as a learning instrument. It sounds good and as you progress further into your  training, you'll know when you're ready for a more expensive instrument. Remember, it isn't the instrument that males music. It is the musician. Don't give up, repetition, repetition, repetition is the way to success. Best of the day to you.
