This is a Lachenal 26-Key Anglo in C/G with steel reeds. It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps, and tuned to concert pitch.
This is an extremely low price for a Lachenal Rosewood 26-Key with steel reeds. It plays really well and has had a full refurbishment, so whilst the ends may have the signs of general wear and tear, it’s a concertina that will play consistently well for a long time.
The downside of this instrument is that it’s had woodworm in the past. We believe that the woodworm had already been treated when this concertina arrived in stock, but to be safe we have treated it again ourselves, meaning that there is very little chance of live woodworm in this instrument, and we have filled the holes (of which there were only a few on one side of the concertina) so that you wouldn’t know that there had ever been an issue. This is the only reason for the low price on this otherwise-lovely concertina, as we understand that woodworm instantly devalues an instrument, whether it has been treated or not.
There are also a few, small, non-structural cracks in the fretwork.
Model: 26-Key in C/G
