|Type : Anglo|
Make : Lachenal
Model : 20 Key in C/G
Price : £375
A Lachenal 20 key from around 1880-90. It is number 77499.
It has mahogany ends stained to a rosewood colour, bone buttons, brass reeds and 5 fold bellows. No case I'm afraid but I might be able to find something to put it in for a little extra payment.
It has been restored with new pads, valves , straps and tuned to concert pitch C/G.
The brass reeds are very good at this period-and it is as loud and responsive as steel reeds -but of course brass reeds are not as durable as steel ones. The bellows seem fine but are very old-as is the concertina itself.
I don't think you will find a nicer 20 key at this sort of price.
