Description

A superb and scarce Wheatstone 48 key English concertina no 26573 model 4B made in 1914.  It is six sided and with raised ebony ends and steel reeds. I have looked after this instrument for the previous owner for many years and most recently tuned it in 2016.  This is Wheatstone’s second top model below the eight sided Aeola and has their best quality reeds and superb build quality throughout.  It combines quick response and a wide dynamic range with a more mellow tone than the metal ended version.

Comes in a hard plastic case “Constellation”  – possibly a vanity case.
