(snip) I was just wondering what other thought about it.

   Hi, Oll.  I don't know that brand (it's probably sold in the US under another name but that doesn't matter) but if you like it, go for it. Nobody else can tell you -- and especially if the price is right!

Best wishes, Bruce

I'm thinking about getting a Nero as my starter instrument. I tried one and it was fantastic.

If you like it then go for it.  Assuming that you have tried others for comparison.  My experience of new Chinese boxes (not Hohner)  is that the quality varies even between examples of the same model.  So  try the actual one before you buy.  The biggest problem I find with the cheapies are very stiff bellows and the boxes tend to be heavy.  Don't attach too much importance to the stop for the thirds, overall playability is much more important when you are learning.

Not just with Chinese boxes, even Castagnaris and Saltarelles vary between examples of the same models :-\ so follow this advice, if at all possible, on any purchase unless you're willing to take a punt on an unknown box like I did with my Giustozzi which turned out very well ;D
