Anglo concertina: Edgley - Heritage model
I bought a C/G anglo concertina from Frank Edgley in September, 2015. It'a a Heritage model which has concertina reeds.
It plays loud and brightly. I can play it as if I played a Suttner concertina. I guess the tone of Suttner concertinas is a little brighter than the one of Edgley Heritage models.
Although it isn't as good as Dipper or Jeffries, I guess it's worth the price.
It has riveted concertina reeds (reed tongues are riveted on reed frames) and hook action. And it has wider bellows frames than our other concertinas.
Because its B-flat reed on the left-hand side had metallic tinkling sound when I received it, I realigned the reed using a small blade according to Frank's advice. At last, it stopped making tinkling sound. Thanks, Frank!
And I adjusted its low-G reed on the left-hand side because it wasn't very responsive. Other reeds that I use when I play Irish music were responsive.
Frank offers good custom-fitted cases or waterproof storm cases. I chose the latter because it's cheaper than the former.
I sold this concertina to a Japanese concertina player after I had enjoyed playing it.
