This is a Lachenal Edeophone 48-Key Treble with steel reeds. It has been restored fairly recently by Colin Dipper, and a few valves have been replaced as necessary. It has been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
The serial number of this instrument is 58255.
Lachenal Edeophones tend to be really lovely instruments, and this is no exception. It is a fairly quick player and have a lovely well-rounded tone that you might expect from a high-quality wooden-ended instrument. You also have the benefit of a restoration done by one of the best restorers and makers around, along with a set of 6-fold Edeophone bellows, which are the strongest that any concertina manufacturer managed to make over the years. As you can see in the pictures, this box isn’t in the best condition aesthetically, due to a serious amount of playing during its lifetime. However, if you’re not too bothered about the look of a concertina and just want a good player, then this could be perfect for you.
