I forget. I think German. Push notes and pull notes are different. As I recall, Anglo is same note, push or pull.  This one was made in Italy.

I tried to learn how to play one for about a week, but I had to stop--I was scaring the neighbors...

If you can play a harmonica you can play a concertina. The "blow" notes on a harmonica are the "push" notes on a concertina. The "suck" notes are the "pull" notes.

No foul intended to Ric on his sea-going concertina of course, but I believe it was Willie Nelson who once remarked that in music a "perfect pitch was an accordian landing on top of a banjo... in the trash".  :o

To each his own.
