The Drudwen 48K English Concertina is a lovely introduction into the world of Concertina playing. With German reeds installed as standard, you have a concertina that produces a great tone and lively feel. Furthermore the mahogany ends and black bellows really give you a traditional craftmanship appearance to a fine instrument. The Drudwen is fully chromatic and each button plays the same note on both push and pull of the bellows. The scale comes by alternating notes from each end of the instrument, which makes it easy to play fast runs. The idea behind the english concertina is so the buttons line up exactly with written music. Therefore stave lines would normally be played on the left side and spaces on the right side. Consequently if you already read music then you might find this system more suited to learn from.
