This concertina has been soldType : Anglo
Make : Lachenal
Model : 20 key Baritone in C/G
Price : £1600
One of the rarer Lachenals-a 20 Key baritone. It is number 116267 which is probably around 1890's.
It has rosewood ends, bone buttons , steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
It has recently come in-restored-in a part exchange deal. I have valeted it, checked out the tuning and replaced some valves which were curled.
It plays very well for a baritone and has a gorgeous tone as you would expect
Of course if it was a 30 key it would be far more useful and double the price but it would be great on simple tunes to accompany song or play parts in a group or with a treble instrument.
It is limited in what keys you can play but there are many people who love the simplicity of a 20 button instrument and would love this as an alternative in certain tunes or groupings.
