Reviews of The McNeela Swan 30 Button Anglo Concertina from Concertina.Net
'After a year and a half of playing the cheapest concertina I could get, I decided on an upgrade. So I chose the Swan. I was afraid that due to its (relatively) low price, the improvement over the previous one wouldn't be enough, but boy was I wrong.
After playing it for a few hours yesterday I am really impressed. It's really responsive, so I can finally play faster.'
"I bought a New Swan anglo from McNeela. And I must say, I enjoy it very much - and am making good progress building a repertoire.
In my opinion, the New Swan is a great concertina for the money. It looks quite decent, sounds good enough and response is quite fast too."

Customer Reviews for the Swan 30 Button Anglo Concertina
'If you are considering buying a budget concertina and you can afford the extra I would strongly recommend you go straight to the Swan.' Caroline S.
'I am extremely pleased with the swan which plays very well and has a lovely tone. I have compared [it] with a much more expensive one, and it plays just as easily and is the same size and weight.' Dan M.
'The sound quality and playability are far better than my top of the range Stagi' Phil J.
'I’m a total newbie on the concertina. I’ve poked around online for several months. The Swan concertina fit my needs perfectly.' Jeremy M.
For those of you wishing to master the traditional Irish music style focusing on Anglo concertinas, we highly recommend critically acclaimed text tutorial The Irish Concertina by Mick Bramich.
What's the difference between Anglo concertinas and English concertinas?
This concertina is suitable for adults and children alike, with its adjustable straps and touch sensitive buttons. It's the perfect model for beginner concertina players and people who are just starting out but want to treat themselves to a premium instrument.
Thanks to its good looks and fantastic sound nobody need know you're a beginner! It's a great session concertina and can hold its own with the best of them.
In general, anglo concertinas are very expensive instruments to buy especially for the beginner player and advanced beginner player, so we wanted to fill this gap in the market. The new Swan does just that, making it affordable for players to advance. We can confidently say that this concertina is the best of its kind at this price range.
It has been built with durability in mind, making it long lasting - this is essential to our customer base, particularly for its resale value. Not only is this Swan durable, but as the reeds are 'exercised' it will actually improve with age. Students usually play this concertina for 3-5 years and then trade it in and upgrade to a more expensive concertina.
And, to completely put your mind at ease, we provide a guarantee for three years, rare amongst concertina makers. Even beyond 3 years we're always more than happy to service our concertinas. If you want to buy a concertina, and you happen to find yourself in Dublin, come visit us in our Baldoyle store, located in Dublin 13 - we'd be happy to help you out!
