Make : Lachenal
Model : 48 Key Paragon
Price : £1100
A very tidy and nicely playing Lachenal Paragon with rosewood ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It has been fitted with new pads, valves, straps, bushings, a refinish of the ends and tuned to concert pitch.
Looks good-plays well with a lovely quite mellow tone and the only tiny negative is that it does have some minor scratching on one of the six sides where it was obviously just caught by a loose screw on the lock.
The marks are not that bad and in no way affecting the playing or stability of the instrument.
I guess that we have to remember that we are dealing with antique instruments.
