The Clare Concertina is designed for students looking for higher quality sound moving up from starter instruments. The reason the student needs to move up to a higher grade concertina is that these instruments have the springs set at a level to enable the student to do all the required ornamentation, with fast response from the fine tuned reeds.
Because of their high quality professional reeds these instruments are highly respected as session / competition instruments. All of the reeds sit into a groove which means they are fixed in position. The end reed pans are sealed into frame using chamois leather, this eliminates air leaks down the road and keeps the concertina sealed for its lifetime.
The highest quality materials go into making our instruments. We want the player to get the best experience and enjoyment possible out of our instruments and because of this we offer the player time to break the instrument in, and if there are adjustments needed such as, action or tuning, the player can get this work done as part of our service.
Our Mid Range instruments use the best professional Italian reeds and because of the maple reed pans they produce a very bright sound.
