This is a Lachenal 48-Key Tutor Model with brass reeds. It has had new ends made, and been fitted with new pads, valves and bushings, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
As you can see from the pictures of this concertina, the new ends have contributed towards a lovely looking instrument- which is very rare for a tutor model instrument. It’s not just in looks that this Lachenal excels either- for a brass reeded tutor model, it’s a fairly quick player with a lovely mellow tone. This softness in sound can often come at the expense of responsiveness, which isn’t the case with this concertina considering it’s a fairly basic instrument that we’re looking at here. Whilst this could be seen as an upgrade for somebody with the most basic of tutor model instruments, it would also be a fantastic starter instrument (budget permitting) as it will hold its value completely, and also allow the musician more time with it before an upgrade is necessary as opposed to the cheapest tutor model possible. A nice instrument.
Model: 48-Key Treble
