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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price 19 Nov 2013

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!
