This is a Lachenal 48-Key tutor model with brass reeds. It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
This model is where most people with an interest in the English-system concertina will begin. A standard 48-Key treble with brass reeds with 5-fold bellows. The ends of this concertina are mahogany but stained to looked like the more expensive rosewood instruments- we call this a lightwood/darkwood. This concertina is a fairly fast player with a mellow tone, and the advantage of bellows that have been fully repaired meaning that they are strong and look extremely tidy. The ends have the wear and tear you’d expect from an instrument that has been well-used over the last 100+ years.
