This is a Lachenal 48-Key Tutor Model with brass reeds. It has been fitted with new pads straps, had a full bellows rebind, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
There are a few different levels of tutor-model English concertinas, with the higher end being distinguishable by the chamfered-edge on the ends and bushings around the buttons. Whilst the steel-reeded version would be considered the top tutor-model, this is a lovely example of brass-reeded version, and it plays very well for the price point. Whilst the ends show signs of wear, the reeds are good quality and have a lovely balanced tone which would be leaning more towards the mellow end of the scale. It plays fairly quickly, and would be a great instrument for somebody either looking to upgrade slightly from their bottom-end English or somebody looking to go into their English concertina journey at the better end of the tutor-model range.
Model: 48-Key Treble
