Make : Lachenal
Model : 56 Key Extended Treble
Price : £2300
A lovely Lachenal 56 key-extended up not below the normal treble range.
These were extremely popular in the days of concertinas used in classical music and Music Hall. Take a look at the Youtube video of the great Tommy Elliott and note at where he is playing. The clip is titled "Sea Shell Have Music"
It has ebonised ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It has been restored with new pads, valves, and tuned to concert pitch.
It plays well with a typical rich Edeophone tone.
On the images you may see what looks like cracks in the right hand end but sadly they are just scratches where someone tried to either tighten or release the endbolts-without holding the tip of the screwdriver-in slipping off it caused the scratches which are purely cosmetic.
