The Concertina – A Musical Instrument
A Concertina is an electronic musical instrument, similar to the accordions, the harp, and other free-reed instruments. It consists of a hand-held electronic device, usually with two or three buttons (or “wheels”), and expanding and contracting pulleys, unlike the more conventional accordion pulleys, which are located on the outside of the instrument. The Concertina can be played by hand or by using a piano keyboard.
The Concertina was first created by the Japanese instrument maker Kakehashi in 1932 and became known as the “Electronic Musical Instrument” or simply “Electronic Concertina.” After World War II, the Concertina was re-designed as the “Combo Concertina,” and then later it was renamed the “Combo Accordion.”
As electronic musical instruments, the Concertina is very easy to play. The only thing that may prove a challenge to some is the fact that they tend to sound louder than traditional instruments because of their smaller size.
Another challenge with the Concertina is that there is no chance of them breaking, although some electronic musical instruments do have a moving piece that breaks when you use it improperly, such as when trying to change the pitch on them. Another problem is that the cost of the Concertina tends to be quite high and it is very rare to find one of these used.
The Concertina is not a true musical instrument that can be played without music, although some versions do have pre-programmed accompaniment. When used with pre-programmed music the Concertina will still produce a note; however the melody that accompanies the music is made entirely up of random notes.
One of the main advantages of the Concertina compared to other types of musical instruments is that it can be played at any tempo. It does not matter whether you are playing slow or fast music. Also, unlike other instruments like the piano, the Concertina is very easy to learn to play. Also, they are extremely portable and make great gifts for young children.
The Concertina may be difficult to find, but if you know where to look, it is not very difficult to obtain one of these types of musical instruments. You can search on-line or check out music stores that specialize in electronic musical instruments, but in most cases you will be able to obtain one fairly easily if you know where to look.
The Concertina is one of the best known musical instruments around. It is also one of the most unique. When you need one of these instruments, or are looking for one, you should take the time to consider your options carefully before buying, because there are many styles and models to choose from.
The most popular version of the Concertina is the one that resembles a trumpet. Although this is not the only model of the Concertina there is, the trumpet style is by far the most common. There are other versions as well, such as those that have two horn sections, such as the four horn model. Some of these models have a three horn section.
The Concertina is a musical instrument that is designed so that you can play in two different keys simultaneously. Unlike many traditional instruments that allow you to only play one or two notes at a time, the Concertina allows you to play in four separate keys at the same time. This is very beneficial when you are playing fast music, because you will not have to stop and change keys, instead you will have to only change up when you are slowing down.
Of course, some versions of the Concertina do not have a single horn, but a combination of four or more horns. Other models only have two horns, allowing for the possibility of a soloist. Another variation of the Concertina is the five horn version that has only the right and left hand horn on the instrument, allowing for the possibility of the guitarist playing both the bass and the lead at the same time.
Of course, when purchasing a musical instrument, you should also consider the material the instrument is made of. There are many versions of the Concertina made of a durable material and made of plastic, but other types are made of metal or wood, which are more affordable.
