This concertina has been soldType : Anglo
Make : Lachenal
Model : 30 Key in C/G
Price : £1400
A Lachenal rosewood-ended anglo in C/G.
It has bone buttons, steel reeds and a good set of 6 fold bellows.
It has been restored with new pads, valves , bushings fitted-which this model never has but it keeps the action noise down-and tuned to concert pitch.
It looks good and plays great. The only issue with it is that it smells of mothballs. I guess this is because it came originally from South Africa and I would suspect that they had more moths and other insects than we have here. There is no evidence of any creature being inside it-I doubt if any of them could stand the odour!
Because of this issue it is being sold at a bargain basement price for a quality playing 30 key. I would certainly be asking £500 more if it didn't smell of mothballs.
Perhaps there is someone out there with no sense of smell-or who loves the smell of moth repellant-you certainly would never have insects wanting to take up residence in it!
