The W-E2 model is based on the early Wheatstone concertinas from the 1850s.  It is developed with the soloist in mind, looking for warmth of tone and balance rather than volume. Its round tone and perfect equilibrium are the result of the reed pan design and the choice of materials.  The primary wood for both the action board and ends is selected fine grained spruce, as used in string instruments. The ends can be 'natural' spruce, or veneered with rosewood or amboyna.  Other woods used in this model are ayous, ebony, American hard maple and rosewood.
