This concertina has been soldType : English
Make : Lachenal
Model : 48 Key Treble
Price : £850
This is a fully rebuilt Lachenal 48 key tutor model. It is higher grade because it has rosewood ends with a chamfered edge which the cheaper models don;t have.
It has bushed bobne buttons, brass reeds and a brand new set of quality 6 fold bellows.
Most of these models are not bushed-nor chamfered and NEVER have 6 fold bellows.
All that would mean nothing if the reeds were poor-but although these are brass reeds they are much more responsive and uniform in sound than the budget concertinas. It plays well-not loud but mellow-and easily quick enough to play fast tunes.
I f you don't want to spend a fortune but want a decent playing, lovely looking, completely restored instrument-this is for you.
Just one of a huge range of English concertinas at all levels-especially at the top levels of quality.
