The secret of all great concertina makes is in the reeds. The Phoenix has been crafted using the best quality materials available, including premium Czech-made reeds. We use Tipo a Mano’ (hand-finished) reeds, from Swedish sound steel, producing a bright, sweet and melodious tone.

Czech reeds are renowned the world over for producing top quality tone and their strength and brightness makes the Phoenix a great traditional Irish session concertina when you need to be heard but not to dominate. Like all good reeds they open up and get even better with play.

Take Your Playing to the Next Level

The Phoenix is a great fit for the intermediate-advanced concertina player, crafted to the highest standard and perfect for students who are ready to advance and master their instrument.

When developing this concertina it was really put to the test. We had several trial sessions and received feedback from many concertina players.

The overwhelming response was that it matched concertinas twice the price for action and sound. This is a concertina that will serve you for years.

The Phoenix also comes with a premium shock-proof hard case


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.
