|The W-A1 is based on the vintage
Wheatstone linota anglo. Both instruments share the same reed pan
layout and construction, and because of that have a comparable sound. The difference is in the reed size and scaling. The W-A1 has long scale reeds and a
finer reed scaling (more reed frame sizes for the same compass) which
results in a more powerful tone and better balance. The standard
configuration has hardwood flat ends, but the instrument is also available with raised wooden or metal ends.
