|Type : Duet|
Make : Lachenal
Model : 39 Key Maccann
Price : £650
A 39 key Maccann with rosewood ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
It has been restored at some time in the past by Alan Davies-a very good restorer from the Nottingham area -so it has recent pads, valves and is tuned to concert pitch.
It plays well and is an upgrade from the more basic bone buttoned Lachenals with the simple fretwork and unbushed buttons-but it is only a 39 key.
I guess it would make a great starter instrument for a person keen to play duet as it has more quality than any other duet of this price range and is small and light.
I would love to say that it is one of a huge range of Duets but all Duets are rare and now they sell so quickly that I only have a small number of them in stock at present.
