English Concertinas

Currently In Stock:

Used Stagi 48-button Tenor -- $399.00
Mahogany body, plastic buttons. The Button Box did some minor repairs on this recently to correct a leak, cleaning, etc. A few buttons have an "airy" sound and this could not be fixed -- it's a design flaw. This concertina still plays well, and is priced appropriately (new price on this model is $949). Hard case included.

Miniature concertina

Stagi 18-button English mini concertina

1.5 pounds, hexagonal, white plastic buttons, quality leather bellows have 10 folds in 2 sections of 5 each. Leather thumbstraps, and the same pinky straps on the other side. (instead of the metal pinky rest found on larger models) Two styles: mahogany with dark brown bellows or black finish with black bellows.

Featherweight and real cute, it's a great street performer's instrument. People are always amazed at the music you can make on this little squeezebox, because they think it's a toy instead of a real instrument.

It's almost like a "button pennywhistle" with 2 sharps and 1 flat, not quite fully chromatic like its big brothers; it is missing only G# and Eb. Plays in C, G, D, F, and the relative minors and Irish modal scales over a range of almost 2 octaves, from C to B. Very nice tone, quite loud despite its size.

Includes hardshell case

This is a very popular item; we don't always have both colors in stock. Please indicate whether you are able to wait for your preferred selection, or whether we should just send whatever we have in stock now.

$649.00

Jackie 30-button English treble concertina -- $415.00

30 button student concertina

The Jackie concertina is designed and developed by The Concertina Connection, based in Washington state. They are manufactured in China, using partly European parts, and they are quality-checked multiple times by The Concertina Connection before shipping.

This is a great beginning concertina that is much higher-quality than other Chinese-made concertinas on the market. They feature a traditional riveted action, normally only found in expensive handmade instruments. 6-fold bellows, traditional thumb straps, accordion-type steel reeds. The Jackie is a treble (violin-range) instrument, fully chromatic. Black only, with white plastic buttons. Padded gig bag and tutorial written especially for this instrument are included!

The "Jack" baritone model is also available by special order, for the same price. Contact us.
