This is a Lachenal Paragon 48-Key Treble with steel reeds. It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
The Lachenal Paragon is Lachenal’s lower mid-range concertina, being a step up from the range of tutor models, with the next step up being the New Model and so on. They’re a very standard but decent English concertina, and that’s exactly what this instrument is. It clearly shows sign of natural wear and tear over time (we’ll call it ‘well-loved’), but it’s still a good steel-reeded concertina. It actually has a surprisingly gentle tone for a steel-reeded instrument, which will be absolutely ideal for a lot of player- ‘mellow’ seems to be more in-demand than ever.
A good, solid instrument.
Model: Paragon Treble
