Opinions on “Rochelle” concertina for young girl as a learning instrument
My 10 yr old daughter is showing interest in the concertina, but she can be a bit mercurial and rough on things. After some research I’ve decided the ‘rochelle’ model concertina from the concertina connection might be a decent choice - but, I’ve heard they are a bit large and stiff.
We are going to take a trip to the button box in Massachusetts to check one out before we purchase but would like some input from the ‘mustard troops’
PS Before I get crucified for not spending a mint, I’d like to point out that I could get a very nice old wheatstone into her hands, but I just want to see if her interest holds and wouldn’t want to see that old gem get mistreated while she learns the proper care and feeding of a concertina.
