Make : Lachenal
Model : 48 Key Treble
Price : £1500
A Lachenal New Model-the model with raised ends and therefore higher quality.
It has metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
What is slightly unusual about it is that the ends are made of aluminium-which is quite common in Crabb instruments but which I have never seen on a Lachenal of this type.
Of course-as it is aluminium there is a weight saving- although it doesn't look as good at close distance as a nickel end would.
It has new pads, valves, straps and is tuned to concert pitch.
A very easy player with a bright sound-it is a bargain at this price.
