This concertina has been finished to a high specification and we are very proud of it.
It also comes with a premium Concertina Hard Case
Until stocks last, buy a McNeela Concertina and get Dave Elliot’s The Concertina Maintenance Manual for just €15 (RRP €24). This offer is subject to availability.
Dave D. Elliot’s concertina manual is the last word on concertina maintenance anywhere and a must have for owners of both new and antique concertinas. Concertinas are intricate instruments borne of a Victorian mania for little machines and hence feature fairly delicate mechanisms that may need simple tweaks from time to time to keep them in playable condition. Mr Elliot has kindly offered me a great deal on a limited amount of his acclaimed manual to lucky buyers of McNeela Concertinas.
BENEFITS OF PLAYING THIS INSTRUMENT
There are many benefits when learning with the Wren 2 concertina, here are just a few:
For those of you wanting to self-teach, this concertina's fast response will ensure faster skill acquisition and a more satisfactory learning experience than other beginner models. "Couldn't be happier with the Wren Concertina. Perfect for a beginner like my daughter. 1 week on, she can already play a few tunes competently having followed 2 online lessons." Lorraine S.
Thanks to the better-crafted features and the smart finish, the Wren 2 empowers the player to take control and play with poise and confidence, and gracefully accompanies the student to the next level "after learning to play a bit, I love its sweet sound and ease of motion. This little darling will serve me for years." Sue C.
The Wren 2 is so easy and enjoyable to handle, students can quickly become addicted to playing. This is due to the fact that this concertina is very forgiving and students won't be too shy or reluctant to practice. "It's really a joy to play, sweet sounding and an "out of the box" play-ability that makes me look forward to getting home for some practice time. Love it!!" David C.
THE INSTRUMENT OF CHOICE FOR MUSIC TEACHERS
Below are just some of the many reasons why teachers believe the Wren 2 is the best beginner concertina:
- When students start playing the Wren 2 concertina there's a notable increase in their speed of learning in comparison to other beginner models.
- This concertina allows students more control over their playing - quickly building up the student's skill-set and awareness, and enabling the student to learn basic and intermediate playing techniques with ease.
- As this concertina gives students the control and sound they strive for, they are likely to have a positive attitude to the learning process and have a more enjoyable time throughout.
We know quality counts:
Here at McNeela Music, it's all about quality. It's a fact that students using a low quality instrument are more likely to stop practicing and even worse, quit altogether. That's why we only provide customers with the highest standard of instruments, as we know lesser quality instruments would be doing our customers a disservice and may hinder them from achieving their goals. And for further peace of mind we offer a 14-day trial with a no-quibble money back guarantee!
The Wren 2 has many standout features, here are just a few:
Provides an ease of play: The Wren 2 was specifically designed for students who want to advance quickly. The large white buttons make it easy to master tricky concertina fingering and helps the student avoid too many errors whilst the excellent sound produced keeps spirits up, encourages practice and is an easy concertina to play - perfect for any beginner.
Stylish appearance to complement its impressive sound: The Wren 2 is finished to a high standard. It has a smart monochrome semi-gloss finish and comes with a complimentary premium foam-lined hard case.
Trade-in when you're ready: We want musicians to evolve and advance, that's why we offer a very generous trade-in programme. Thanks to the Wren 2's longevity and the way it improves with play, it has great resale value.
