Make : Lachenal
Model : 48 Key Treble
Price : £750
A completely rebuilt Lachenal concertina. It has bushed bone buttons-the bushing is important as it keeps the action quiet-and you don't get it on the cheaper tutor models!-rosewood ends, brass reeds and 5 fold bellows.
This concertina has had new pads, valves, straps, bushings, a refinish of the wooden ends and a bellows rebind and repaper.
It looks almost like new and plays very well-easily and quickly-just with a more gentle mellow sound from a good set of brass reeds. It comes in its original case-which is in decent condition-just needing a handle-which is an easy fix.
This is just one of a whole range of cheaper , genuine , English concertinas.
