Make : Wheatstone
Model : Tenor-Treble Aeola
Price : £3750
A very tidy and good playing Wheatstone Aeola No 31545 -which some cognoscenti reckon is the very top period for Wheatstones.
It has metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
Comes in an original Wheatstone hide leather case-which is reasonably sound.
The concertina itself is in good condition. It has been fitted with new pads, valves, straps had a bellows top run rebound-and tuned to concert pitch.
It plays very well and has the tone and action that a tenor-treble Aeola should have,
A tenor-treble is probably the best concertina to have if you only want one instrument because it will play all your normal tunes as the whole treble keyboard is there - but it also has 8 lower bass notes-which are from a baritone range so you can also play lovely full chords to accompany singing or allow you to play in different octaves.
One of about eight tenor-treble Aeolas in stock at present.
