Action: We use a traditional riveted action and stainless steel springs for a quick and even response.
Reedpan: The reedpan and action board 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 (C/G and G/D only).
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.

    Steve has ask me to review my new Ceili concertina.
    I have struggled with both new and old referbed concertinas for a few years now,and have never really been satisfied with the results.
    Buttons sticking,notes just not quite in tune etc all the usual stories.
    The Ceili is built to the highest standard in every way possible. It plays in concert pitch and is as faster action as I have ever known.
    It is effortless to play, all I have to do now is get the notes in the right place !
    I could not be more pleased with a anglo concertina. I love it.

    I have had my Ceili for a month now so feel I can now do a review. It is a beautifully looking instrument and is built to the highest quality. I love it and it is a pleasure to play. It is so responsive, it’s fast and so comfortable to play, it also sounds great. Also the service from Steve and the team is top notch, they are happy to advise and communication is great from them.
