|Type : Anglo|
Make : Lachenal
Model : 30 key in G/D
Price : £1300
A very nice Lachenal 30 key mahogany-ended anglo in G/D.
I believe that we sold this concertina some years ago and were lucky enough to get it back in stock.
It has mahogany ends, bone buttons, steel reeds and a new set of 6 fold bellows.
A few years ago it was restored with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.
One end is fine but the other end has a couple of repaired cracks which are very solid-but damage its looks.
On the other hand-it plays as well or better than any cheap model Lachenal G/D I have ever had.
I will probably have new ends made for it-and then charge a lot more but I guess that the repairs will eat up the extra charge so it won't make any more profit and someone might rather pay a cheaper price because they are not bothered about looks.
I also have a couple in for new ends so it cannot be done immediately and I might as well try it for sale while it is waiting its turn.
