This is one of those quite rare, top tutor models which has bushed bone buttons and steel reeds. Really it is like a cheaper version of the Paragon model. This one has ends stained black-the bushed buttons and 5 fold bellows.
The bushings keep the action noise down from the clatter of the unbushed cheaper models and the steel reeds make it more than a basic learner's instrument.
It has been fitted with new straps, valves, pads, and tuned to concert pitch. The bellows have been re-bound and re-papered.
It is a decent player and half way house between the tutor models and the lower middle range concertinas.
