Concertina Description

This is a fully rebuilt Lachenal 48 key tutor model. It is higher grade because it has rosewood ends with a chamfered edge which the cheaper models don;t have. 

It has bushed bobne buttons, brass reeds and a brand new set of quality 6 fold bellows. 
It has recently been completely re-finished with the ends redone, new bushings, new bellows , new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch. With some restorers those jobs alone would cost way more than we are actually asking for the instrument!

Most of these models are not bushed-nor chamfered and NEVER have 6 fold bellows.

All that would mean nothing if the reeds were poor-but although these are brass reeds they are much more responsive and uniform in sound than the budget concertinas. It plays well-not loud but mellow-and easily quick enough to play fast tunes. 

I f you don't want to spend a fortune but want a decent playing, lovely looking, completely restored instrument-this is for you.

Just one of a huge range of English concertinas at all levels-especially at the top levels of quality.
