Price : £600
A 22 Key rosewood-ended Lachenal No, 50066-which is likely to be 1880's.
It has steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It has been fitted with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch. It is generally in decent condition but does have a typical rosewood crack on the left hand side which is more cosmetic than damaging.
The best thing about this instrument is that it is not quite as limited as a normal 20 key in that it has the extra accidental notes which are Bb/G# on the left and D#/C# on the right. These notes open it up to a multitude of tunes that could never be played on a 20 key.
Plays and sounds well for a cheaper instrument.
Comes in a new , basic gig bag.
