|Type : Anglo|
Make : Lachenal
Model : 32 key in C/G
Price : £2000
A very nicely playing Lachenal 32 key anglo in C/G which has the number 58944. This is not an original Lachenal label but i have opened the instrument and it is the correct number and would mean that it was made around the 1880's.
It has metal ends. bone buttons, steel reeds and a decorated set of 6 fold , green leather bellows.
When I opened it I saw a label for Nigel Sture-who I presumed did the work on it as it has been fitted with new pads, valves and is tuned to concert pitch.
The two extra buttons are a cock crow and a bird whistle.
It is a good player -quick and balanced compared to a lot of Lachenals and is certainly fast enough for Irish Music
