          For Whom
          The anglo concertina is a wonderful versatile instrument, that is relatively easy to learn
          and perfect for all kinds of folk music.  Because of its small size it is very portable, and
          it blends perfectly with other instruments. 

          The relatively high price of vintage concertinas and ‘mid priced’ new models, has kept many
          prospective players from trying the concertina.
          The Rochelle has been developed to cater to this group of potential players. It is the perfect
          instrument for anyone interested in trying out the anglo concertina without having to invest
          a large amount of money to purchase that first instrument.

          The Rochelle has been developed especially for beginning anglo players. Although the
          instrument is perfectly capable of meeting the requirements of intermediate players, we
          understand that many players might want to upgrade to a vintage or new instrument later on.

          With this in mind, we made all the important features, such as key board lay out, spacing of the
          keys, key diameter, key travel (the height of the keys), number of bellows folds, etc. identical to
          traditional anglo concertinas, to assure a smooth transition to a higher class concertina later on. 
          Upgrade options are the Clover anglo and the high end traditional Wakker anglo models.   


          The Rochelle anglo has a traditional riveted action. The action makes the instrument 'feel' much
          like a high priced vintage instrument.




          The instrument comes with an easy to understand tutor, especially written for this instrument. 
          It will teach the basics of playing concertina, music notation, rhythm, music theory, etc.. 

          The tutor is suitable for both self study and for use in formal lessons (e.g. music schools,
          private instruction, etc.).


         The Rochelle is part of our upgrade program.
