This is a Lachenal Non-Pareil 48-Key Treble with steel reeds. It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps, and been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
Amboyna is an incredibly beautiful wood, which is evident with this concertina. It is in pretty wonderful condition, and is a very nice player to match- responsive with a balanced tone (leaning slightly more towards the mellow side). The one downside of this instrument is that somebody has replaced the bellows at some point in its life, and the 5-fold set that are on it are not the most flexible. That wouldn’t be an issue for a tune player, but we’d encourage people who want to accompany songs with chords to maybe consider other concertinas with 6-fold bellows.
A really beautiful concertina.
