Sea of Thieves: How to Get a Concertina (Accordion) & What They Do
Sea of Thieves is the open world pirate game developed by Rare. The game is set to launch on March 20 and will see players teaming up to collect treasure, shoot cannons and sail the open seas. In the game, players are able to use instruments to play sea shanties together with a variety available to find and master. There are three instruments in the game, the Concertina (Accordion), the Hurdy-Gurdy and the Fiddle, with variations available for each one.
A basic version of the accordion is equipped to every new player upon starting Sea of Thieves and can be accessed via the Equipment Box on the very first island, located in front of Tom’s Shop. This store front is located in the area before you head out to reach your ship. Other versions can be purchased at Equipment Shops, see a full list of Concertina types below:
