Concertina Description

A Lachenal 48 key treble English concertina.

It is called a "New Model" as it was the first type of concertina to have raised ends and the name continued through its history although this one is numbered 52076 -which would be around 1905-many years after the name was introduced.

It has raised ebonised ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows + a new quality gig bag.

It has been restored with new pads, straps ,valves, bushings and an end re-finish. It is also fitted with wrist straps and has bowing valves,(air release  levers which have some strange use that I have never really understood-look it up)!

It plays well with a great tone.
