Action: We use a traditional riveted action and stainless steel springs for a quick and even response.
Reedpan: The reedpan and action pan are integrated, making our instruments unusually light and offering a full and bright sound.
Reeds: We use high-grade Italian-made accordion reeds, providing a response and dynamic range equal to or surpassing that of many vintage concertinas. Our standard reeds strike a good balance of response and tone. Hand-finished (tipo a mano) reeds are also available for an additional charge.
Bellows: Our standard bellows have six folds and a traditional construction of acid-free card stock, goat and cow leathers, and linen, providing strength, flexibility, and durability. A seven-fold bellows is available for an additional charge.
Endframes: The graceful fretwork is made of a strong cherry laminate with a rich natural ‘rosewood’ stain or a satin black finish.
Fittings: Our concertinas are fitted with our own brass endbolts and thumbscrews.
