Recommended Posts

Hi Just got a new/ used concertina.It,s great & having lots of fun trying to play it.Now the serious part, can anyone help, What is it exactly ? I bought it from an auction site so no information or history came with it.It has a Louis Lachelnal makers name & No; 10104, 48 buttons english, pretty inlay on the wooden fret work. I,m assuming it,s an older model,maybe an inimatable?. Thank you for any help on this.I,ve not attached pics. as the max is only 3.91mb. sorry.

Your concertina sold earlier on Ebay, where it had a fuller description. It is an Excelsior Model, which is akin to an Inimitable Model except it has darker wood fretwork than the Inimitable.

In case of interest, it was made circa 1868.

I seem to recall that an Inimitable would not necessarily have long-scale reeds, as opposed to the Excelsior.
