This concertina has been soldType : Anglo
Make : Lachenal
Model : 20 Key in G/D
Price : £675
A mahogany Lachenal 20 key in the very rare key of G/D -and I think it was made in that key-which is even rarer.
It has mahogany ends, bone buttons , steel reeds and a brand new set of 6 fold bellows.
It has been restored with new pads, straps, valves and tuned to concert pitch. It was also at that time fitted with a genuine set of quality 6 fold bellows-which make a massive difference to its air usage-and added a great amount to the price of the restoration.
The concertina plays great for a budget instrument as it has good reeds.
I am often asked for a cheap G/D to play for Morris or to sing with-and I never have one when I am asked-I don't expect to have this one for too long.
