Concertina Description

A Victorian concertina-unlabelled. I think it is most likely to be a Rock Chidley but one of my restorers has put one of my labels in it for fun.

It has rosewood ends, bushed bone buttons-the bushing is crucial as it keep the action quiet-brass reeds with some nickel replacements and 5 fold bellows.

The concertina has been restored with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.

It comes in its original case -which has not been restored like the instrument.

It plays well for a cheap. budget model concertina. It is faster than the very cheap models and has a lovely gentle tone-but it would not be loud enough for sessions.

A bargain at the price.
