This is a Lachenal 48-Key Treble with steel reeds (Serial Number 39166). It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
This is a nice instrument for the price point it falls into. The Paragon is the most common of the lower mid-range English concertinas, and they’re mostly well-made instrument with good quality reeds. The fretwork is in fairly good condition for an antique Lachenal, the bellows have been re-papered and new leather has been fitted around the bellows frames due to damage caused by a previous handler of the instrument due to a faulty case.
This would be a great upgrade for somebody looking to move on from their first tutor-model English without wanting to break to bank.
Model: Paragon Treble
