A mainstay in folk, traditional and polka music, concertinas are known for their interesting shape, their individual button note construction and compact, portable size. A cousin of the accordion, concertinas typically come in three different styles: English, Anglo-German and German. English concertinas play a chromatic scale and are designed so that each button produces the same note whether the bellows are being pushed or pulled. German concertinas generally use a different style of "long plate" reeds and have a boxy, square look. Anglo-German concertinas are a combination of both types, blending the "long-plate" reed design of the German concertina with the hexagonal shape of the English type.
A top seller for many reasons, the Hohner D40 Concertina is an instrument that brings style and substantial sound to any performance.
