This concertina has been soldType : English
Make : Wheatstone
Model : 48 Key Treble
Price : £1800
A Wheatstone English 48 key No 30888-top period for the company.
It has metal ends and buttons, steel reeds , a new set of 6 fold bellows and is fitted with wrist straps.
It has just come back from restoration where it was fitted with the new bellows as well as pads, straps, valves and tuned to concert pitch.
This is a very popular model as it is a good quality Wheatstone with plenty of power and speed but these flat metal-ended ones are nowhere near as strident as the raised metal -ended ones-also they are a lot less expensive.
A quality instrument in almost "as new" condition.
I have about three more of this model in stock and a whole range of English concertinas at around this sort of price and below.
