Item specifics

Seller refurbished: An item that has been restored to working order by the eBay seller or a third party not approved by ... Read moreabout the condition
The versatility of the tenor-treble, with its 8 extra notes below the normal treble range, makes it one of the most desirable types of concertina - and
the Wheatstone Aeola is generally, and justifiably, considered to be top of the tree,

This one, serial number 27664, was made in 1917, and it's a fine example of the breed. It has just been comprehensively restored, with new pads, valves, 
bushings, dampers and thumb-straps. The woodwork has been stripped and refinished in French polish, the ends, buttons and fittings have been polished, 
and the instrument has been tuned to modern concert pitch. 

Best of all, it has been fitted with new 7-fold bellows, which would leave you little, if any, change from £500 if you had to replace them yourself. 

It looks gorgeous, and its performance is as good as its looks. It plays fast and loud, with the bright tone typical of a metal-ended Wheatstone, but is also capable of 
being played quietly - always a sign of quality.

If you found this one on a festival stall or in a music shop, it would be attached to a price ticket of about £4000. I'm starting this one way under that, and selling 
without reserve, so this is your chance to buy a superb instrument at a bargain price.

As always, if you're within reach of Norwich, do feel free to come and have a squeeze. Otherwise, please ask any questions, and I'll do my best to answer them.
