I'm selling my fully restored Wheatstone#7640 English 48 key treble concertina. Nickel flat topped pegs. Excelsior style brass touches. Embossed new 6 fold bellows, new pads, valves tuned to concert pitch. Dates from around 1860. With original wooden case and new gig bag. The concertina has been beautifully restored by Dave Elliott. Looking for £1300 but sensible offers considered.DSC_0734.JPG DSC_0741.JPG DSC_0736.JPG DSC_0738.JPG DSC_0740.JPG

Jennie, I find this interesting as I have a (both soundwise and as to the looks) beautiful Lachenal Excelsior which may be in need of a bellows replacement. With the instrument as advertised here, a repairer was apparently able to save the gilt toolings on the leather covering the frames. Do you have any information as to how, or who the repairer was?

 

Good luck with your sale - Wolf

 

(or, on second thought, is it just a newly-embossed replacement-bellows?)

This morning I received an email regarding this concertina from Vetiver, a person who signed as Michel. I was unable to respond to the email. But if Michel sees this, in answer to your query, the reeds are brass.

Hi Wolf. The concertina was repaired by Dave Elliott in Sheffield.


Thank you for Jennie - it hadn't occurred to me that the information re the renovation also applied to dealing with the bellows.

Best wishes - Wolf
