This concertina has been soldType : Duet
Make : Lachenal
Model : 46 Key Maccann
Price : £750
Just come in as a part exchange-a Lachenal 46 key Maccann No 1317-c 1900.
It has rosewood ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
I believe that it was sold by Theo Gibb and it has a repair label for Nigel Sture in Devon so it has been fitted with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch. It has also had some re-enforcing to the bellows hinges and gussets inside but it appears to be airtight.
It does play well as it has belonged to a good player and has a very pleasant tone.
One of a number of duets in recently. Most are in the process of restoration and will be listed as soon as they are ready.
