Product Description

Scarlatti SCE-30 Concertina - English system, 30 button, G below middle C to 3rd C above middle C.Wooden ended<P>Scarlatti Accordions, Melodeons and Concertinas are made in China. They have good reeds, and the instruments are excellent value, although they are not finished to the standards of European makers. The Scarlatti range is ideal for beginners, and they are priced very attractively to enable you to take a chance and see if the instrument is for you. Although they are a beginner's instrument, they are of a much higher quality than the Chinese Accordions, melodeons and concertinas of the past, and will keep you going for some time!<P>Made by Scarlatti Accordions - Economical and reliable accordions from China

I did not buy this from Amazon. I bought it from a reputable musical instrument store. As other reviewers have noted the keys stick and on mine the G button (Very frequent note in Morris tunes!!) frequently disappears inside the instrument. The only thing I would say is that Concertina's are not cheap as a rule and you get what you pay for. Perhaps if you can play this you can play anything...But you do need to be able to play the note G! If you do purchase one make sure you have a screwdriver with you so that you can retrieve those disappeared buttons. But be prepared to do it again and again because the inside mechanism is cheaply made and a permanent solution may not be possible.Good Luck!

Wish I'd read all the reviews before I ordered. Like another reviewer, I found that many of the buttons jammed as they lean into the holes. Then one button went down and didn't come up again and finally another button popped out inside the bellows. The item was also rather dirty and the little finger rests were tarnished and dirty, although this was supposed to be a new item. All of this happened within 30 minutes of opening the box. I would suggest avoid at all costs. I went for a more expensive model from Amazon the Stagi, but that was just as bad. What a nightmare!

Excellent condition for used item, as new. I am almost absolute beginner on the concertina but have a love of folk music and will succeed in improving my performance.

I really like this, though it isn't perfect. Some of the keys did stick at first, but it seems to be improving with use and it hasn't happened now for days. I wondered about exchanging it at first, but for all the hassle I might have ended up with one that was as bad or worse as sticky keys seem to be quite common with these cheap concertinas, and it is fixable if it doesn't go away. Bottom line is that is is about half the price of the next better one I could have bought, and there was no way I could have justified that before Christmas whereas now I will hopefully be playing simple carols round the Christmas tree!

What I maybe would have considered if I had not bought this on impulse is buying the same thing from Hobgoblin - about £30 more but being a real music store I would be more confident that they would check for misaligned keys etc before sending it out. I'm rating it for what it is - a cheap but very usable concertina that I am really enjoying learning on. There are not a huge number of English concertinas out there to choose from. Could I have bought something better? Of course, but not for the price.

Also wanted to add that it comes with a nice soft case, so there is no need to buy one separately - I nearly did as no case is mentioned in the description.

Editing this to add - almost a month on, I have now completed 20 hours of practice (self taught) on this concertina (see my review for 'The First Twenty Hours' by Josh Kaufman to see why that number is significant!
