A very nice Wheatstone English concertina of the riveted reed period- 1860-90.
It has rosewood ends. metal buttons steel reeds and a brand new quality set of 6 fold bellows. Comes in a padded gig bag.
It has just come back from being restored where the new bellows were fitted along with new pads, valves bushings and straps.
It has been tuned to concert pitch.
Note that the 56 key extended treble is exactly the same size as a 48 key treble.
It plays beautifully with a gentle tone which the riveted reeds seem to always generate.
