English System
For each button, the same note plays on the push and pull of the bellows. It is fully chromatic. On a 48-key Treble instrument, the range is similar to a Violin from G to C three and a half octaves above.
The scale is played by alternating between the ends, which makes it easy to play fast runs. Block chords are easy to build up, and the English Concertina is excellent for song accompaniment.

The Tenor extends the range down to C, but loses the upper range, the Tenor treble covers the whole range from C to C, and the Baritone has a range one octave below the Treble. Well known players of this system include Alf Edwards, Alistair Anderson, John Townsend, & Damien Barber.
Here at Red Cow Music,we have our own repair workshop,so if you have any problems with your concertina or melodeon just give us a call on 07812064322. Thank you Steve and Miles Morrison

    I bought this concertina on the recommendation of Concertina. Net and did a lot of research into the matter.
    Firstly the service I got from Red Cow Music was not short of first class, nothing was a problem and the instrument arrived quickly and in playing order.
    I am getting on famously with the concertina, it plays well and sounds warm and joyful.
    The book is easy to follow.
    Many thanks Steve for your kind advice and encouragement in getting me playing. Simon B

    I checked out English Concertina’s on line and the Jackie kept coming out top.
    I contacted Red Cow Music and they gave me all the information I needed.
    When it arrived it came well packaged, and included a note from Steve Morrison which was very reassuring.
    Steve encouraged me to purchase a different book than the one included and this has been a real bonus.
    Excellent concertina and even better service ++++

    Huge thank you to Steve from Red Cow Music for all his help & advice which was excellent.

    I play the Melodeon but wanted to branch out with my spare time due to “Lock down” . I am very pleased I took Steve’s advice re the Jackie. I was tinkering with a cheaper Concertina before wanting to upgrade & very pleased I did. THANK YOU STEVE.

    Huge thank you to Steve at Red Cow Music for all his advice & help re the Jackie.

    I play the Melodeon but wanted a reed instrument to be able to play in different keys with time to spare due to the “Lock Down”

    I tried a cheap Concertina but after a time realised I needed better quality so pleased to say this Jackie is already proving its worth. THANK YOU STEVE

    Spent ages checking out English Concertina’s on line and on You Tube saw a glowing testimonial by Daddy Long Les for the Jackie. Also on many other searches the Jackie just kept appearing again and again as a great quality stater instrument for a new player.
    I telephoned Steve at Red Cow Music and he gave me good sound information with no sales pressure.A real honest friendly gentleman and a musician. When the instrument arrived it was thoroughly packaged, and on top of the instrument was a note by Miles son of Steve Morrison “Tested and played in full working order”. This was a lovely human touch.
    Also got good advice by Steve on a tutor book which I ordered and can testify that the English Concertina built by Concertina Connection by William Walker is a great investment for starting a lifetimes journey of this instrument !
