This concertina has been soldType : English
Make : Lachenal
Model : 56 key Extended Treble
Price : £1700
A lovely Lachenal New Model-which means that it has the raised ends-a sign of real quality-and Lachenal's next top model to the Edeophone.
It is a 56 key extended treble-extended up-not down. It is no larger than a 48 key and anyone who can play a 48 key will find the buttons in exactly the right place and not notice the difference.
We tend not to use the top notes much in Folk Music but these instruments were used by the top players in the past who often played in the piccolo range.
It has metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It has been restored with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.
It is in great condition and plays really well -as an instrument like this should.
Just one of a huge range of English concertinas in stock that are not on the website.
