GUEST,Woody England's National Musical-Instrument? (1943* d) RE: England's National Musical-Instrument? 10 Nov 08


Any thoughts on which 'tina would be easiest to pick up for a complete beginner? I've been daydreaming about getting an English, partly because I like the look of the system and partly because I've heard good things about the Jackie

Pardon me if I give my ten penn'uth woth here...

As far as I know there aren't any beginner Duets at a similar price to the Jackie. Concertina Connection who make the Jackie also make the Rochelle Anglo which sells for the same price.

As far as which system to choose, if you have a particular type of music in mind that may tend to lead you towards either the Anglo or the English but generally it's worth trying both and seeing which system makes the most sense to you.

For me the Anglo is obvious and the EC is a mystery wrapped in an enigma - for others it's the other way round.
