This is a Lachenal Edeophone 48-Key Treble with steel reeds. It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz). It has also been refinished, re-bushed, and the bellows have had a professional rebind. The serial number is 60014 which dates to around 1928-9.
Whilst Lachenal’s budget instruments were very poor at the time this concertina was made, the top-end instruments were the best quality they had ever been, and this lovely Edeophone is testament to that. It has been through a full restoration which means it both looks and sounds fantastic. The tone is loud enough but without crossing over into the ‘harsh’ territory. It is extremely well-balanced. The instrument is also noticeably light, which is another huge advantage.
A very reasonable price for an instrument of this quality.
