Paragons are the lowest of the middle range models and the cheapest English concertinas to have all the major requirements-steel reeds, bushed metal buttons and 5 fold bellows. A very popular model with customers who want a decent playing instrument-either as a first concertina or more likely as an upgrade from lesser instruments.
Sounds well with a lovely tone and quick action. We have a few more of this model in stock-and certainly a few on the repair pile!
