the Clare has arrived just in time for my workshop weekend. Thank you very much. It's a wonderful instrument with a brilliant sound, easy to play and with good workmanship. In the past few days I could compare it with the very expensive instruments from Suttner and 7mount. Regardless the price in absolutely every case I would choose the Clare rather than any other. In general I am nearly 100% happy.
The Irish Concertina Company.
Would you have a flyer on email as I was recommending the Clare Concertinas to friends of mine last week and would like to send them on something if you have it.
The concertina is beautiful to play and thanks for everything.
I am very glad with the decision to buy the Clare concertina from the Irish concertina company. Sean was very friendly and has done everything to fulfill my expectations. I am fully satisfied. I had the chance to compare the instrument with very expensive ones from German manufacturers in a big workshop. In absolutely every case I would choose the Clare. And I think some other participants too. It has a very good workmanship, bright and brilliant sound, precise responsiveness, is easy to play and well tuned. Thank you Sean, I am quite sure the Clare will accompany me for a lifetime. I will recommend you to anyone.
I meant to e mail you sooner.

Hello Sean, further to previous message today, the Clare arrived at 4.15 this afternoon, and apart from my wife on our wedding day, it's the most beautiful thing I've seen! It looks, sounds and reacts beautifully and I would recommend The Irish Concertina Company without hesitation, thank you so much for your rapid attention. The first thing I played on it was 'Black Waterside', Irish of course!

I just want to share how happy I am with my beautiful Vintage Concertina. It really is an exceptional instrument both to look at and to listen to. I really love it. The sound is vibrant yet very sweet. I’m often asked at sessions where I got it because of its beautiful tone and resonance. The sound seems to carry really well, even amongst strong instruments like banjos or accordions. I have no reservations recommending The Vintage or The Irish Concertina Company to people when they ask.
I chose the dark wood stripe version and I have to say I love it. I think the stripe gives it a little distinctive edge.
I can’t recommend dealing with Sean Garvey and his nephew enough. They are a very professional and easy to deal with outfit. For me this is really important. It’s reassuring to know that you have such a skilled and reliable person to contact long term in order to maintain the instrument and Sean is always obliging and helpful.
PS. I’ve no vested interest in writing this review. I’m just a happy customer!
Thank you Catherine, Sean
The concertina arrived today. What a gem, sweet tone, responsive action. Thank you, Sean it's wonderful.
