|Type : Anglo|
Make : Lachenal
Model : 30 Key in C/G
Price : £1500
A rosewood ended Lachenal 30 key in C/G with bone buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
Let me say from the outset that it is a "marriage" concertina-made up from a couple of original instruments. It came in that way and it is not uncommon for this sort of thing to happen to cheaper anglos as they were the playthings of the less wealthy-therefore most likely to be messed with.
It has had intensive restoration. It is now bushed-which it never was originally. It has new bellows, refinished ends, new pads, valves, straps and is tuned to concert pitch. It is therefore in good playing condition-and indeed is a decent playing instrument-it is just being sold at a lower than usual price because of the secret it holds.
If you want a nicely playing instrument in great working condition -but not totally original-this could be for you.
One of a massive range of anglo concertinas almost all of which are not listed on the site-I just can't keep up with it-so ask if you are looking for something special.
