A Wheatstone 55 Key Maccann Duet No 27703.
It has rosewood ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 8 fold bellows!
It has been restored with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.
This is a Wheatstone from the top period of production so it has a quality build and quality reeds.
It plays well and is bright and loud-but with the slightly more mellow sound that wooden ends can give.
Duets are very popular at the moment and this is a nice example of a 55 key Maccann.
