|Type : Anglo|
Make : Lachenal
Model : 28 Key in C/G
Price : £950
This is a very nice playing 28 key Lachenal anglo in C/G.
It has mahogany ends stained a rosewood colour, bone buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It has been restored with new pads, valves, straps, a bellows rebind and re-paper then tuned to concert pitch.
It just could be a "marriage" concertina in that it has only 28 buttons but has a reedpan with slots for a 30 key.
Whatever it originally was -it looks good and plays really well.
Everyone knows that Lachenal anglos can be in a very wide range of qualities depending mainly on the period they were made -but also what has happened to them in their existence.
All I can say is that this one is a fine player with great reeds -and it would be hard to find a better example of this model.
It has enough notes to play all Irish tunes.
Only one of a huge range of quality anglos.
