accordion vs. concertina reeds
What precisely is the difference between an "accordion reed" and a "concertina reed." The sound is obviously different, but I’m asking about the physical/metallurgical difference between the two. I know there must be past discussions of this here and on C-net, but I can’t seem to find anything specific. Nor can I find a precise explanation on the Suttner, Wakker etc. web sites. I’ve just purchased my first instrument with "real concertina reeds" and yet I can’t explain to anyone what the term means.
