Concertina Description

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.
The numbers on the end and the reedpan match so it may just be that Lachenal used a ready made reedpan  with a 28 key end.

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.
