What's the difference between an Anglo Concertina and an English Concertina?
The English Concertina, as its name implies, is primarily used to play English folk music. It's a unisonoric instrument meaning each button plays the same note on both the push and pull. As a result, it has a different button layout to the Anglo Concertina.
Anglo Concertinas are bisonoric instruments. This means that each button plays two separate notes, depending on whether you are pushing or pulling the bellows. Anglo Concertinas typically feature either a Wheatstone or Jeffries layout.
At McNeela Instruments we are committed to providing customers with the highest standard of instruments at the most accessible prices. Our low cost, high quality instruments are designed to assist our customers to achieve their goals.
The quality of the reeds is one of the factors that has the greatest impact on the sound any concertina produces. The playability, sound and quality of a concertina all depend on the reeds that it’s fitted with.
We only use the best quality reeds in our instruments, including those designed for intermediate musicians. We want to enable you to sound good on every step of your musical journey.
Czech reeds are renowned the world over for producing top quality tone. Like all good reeds, these will open up and get even better the more you play them.
The Perfect Folk Concertina
Do you love to sing? The Regondi English Folk Concertina is a great fit for accompanying ballads and sea shanties. This unisonoric instrument facilitates the easy playing of chords, so you can play along while you sing your favourite songs.
A Worthy Investment

Concertina Care Tips
The concertina storage tips below, courtesy of Chris Algar, will ensure your concertina stays in top condition for longer and will help maintain smooth action and playability.
- When not playing your concertina, always store your concertina in its hard case with the lid fastened to prevent dust or grit getting in and affecting the intricate internal mechanism.
- Concertinas hate extremes of temperature and humidity, we recommend storing your concertina in its hard case, in a room with an ambient temperature of at least 18C but no more than 25C.
- Extremes of temperature or extreme fluctuations of temperature, may cause key functioning and moveable parts of the concertina to warp, sometimes to an irreparable extent.
- Humidity must also be kept constant, anything under 40% humidity will cause the concertina to react and will likely affect the reed pan and cause other issues that may make the concertina harder to play or may prevent it from playing at all
- In winter keep a tray of water near the radiator in the room where you store your concertina to prevent the air from drying out.
- Those of you on the East Coast of the US, be particularly careful as your low humidity during winter may lead to internal damage to the concertina.
- When storing your concertina, make sure that you keep the bellows compressed. Firstly, ensure that you have the bellows compressed by placing a tight elastic band around the concertina, secondly, keep the concertina tightly packed in its hard case.
- Keeping the bellows compressed in this way prevents them from expanding and losing elasticity and means you won’t lose action on the concertina.
