This is a Wheatstone 48-Key Treble with brass reeds. It has been fitted with new pads and valves, and been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
It’s so important to stress that you should not write this concertina off due to the fact that is has brass reeds and is a very early Wheatstone. It is so much of a better player than we ever expected it to be, and looks beautiful too, with a lovely wood grain. It does have a few signs of wear, around the central screws, but it is a wonderful player- fast and responsive with a really nice mellow tone. These early Wheatstone tend to be associated with slowness and air inefficiency, but that really is not the case here. A fantastic thing.
