English Concertinas

About the English system

English system concertinas are fully chromatic instruments with each button producing the same note on the push and pull of the bellows. Each side has 4 columns of buttons: the two center columns correspond to the natural (white) keys on a piano, and the outside columns are the accidental (black) keys. The notes of a scale alternate between the left and right sides. The number of buttons varies from 30 to 70, but 48 is standard. The different sizes originally corresponded to the members of the violin family, with the 48-button treble model having the range of the violin (G below the staff to C three octaves above middle C). They are very smooth and agile instruments, originally designed for classical music, but well-suited to folk music and chordal song accompaniment. All models are tuned to a'=440hz.

Anglo Concertinas

About the anglo system

Anglo concertinas have a diatonic system similar to the button accordion: each button gives a different note on the push and pull. The lower notes of the scale are on the left side, and the higher notes are on the right. The number of buttons varies from 20 to 50. Instruments with 30 or more buttons are chromatic through a certain range but are most often played in only a few "home" keys. Anglo concertinas are well suited for song accompaniment, Morris, and Irish music. All models are tuned to a'=440Hz.

Duet Concertinas

About duet systems

Duet system concertinas were a later development that incorporated features of both the Anglo and English systems; they have the same note on the push and pull, and have the lower range on the left side and the higher range on the right, thus allowing the melody and full accompaniment to be played on one instrument. A number of different fingering systems have been developed over the years: McCann, Crane (or Triumph), Jeffries, and most recently, the Hayden system. While the older duet systems were without a doubt the most difficult concertinas to master, many consider the Hayden system even easier to learn than the English or anglo. New instruments are only available in the Hayden system. For the other systems, check our vintage inventory. All models are tuned to a'=440Hz.
