English Concertina
Introduction: The English concertina is fully chromatic and each button plays the same note on both push and pull of the bellows. The scale comes by alternating notes from each end of the instrument, which makes it easy to play fast runs. This system tends to suit players who read music as the buttons line up exactly with written music with the stave lines on the left hand and spaces on the right.
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.
