This concertina has been soldType : English
Make : Wheatstone
Model : 48 key Treble
Price : £1600
This is my only commission sale as I write and it belongs to one of my oldest concertina friends who simply isn't using it as he has so many good instruments.
It is number 25641 which is July 1912
It is a Wheatstone 48 key treble with metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
It has been fully restored with new pads, valves, straps and the new set of bellows.
I am led to believe that Dave Leese made the bellows and Nigel Sture did the valves and tuning-and they both did a great job.
It looks lovely and is a good player.
Great condition and sound. It has power if you need it but can be played gently and has a beautiful balanced tone.
Comes in a modern hard case and is a bargain at this price!
