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 (A=440hz).
Although 26-Key instruments will never be quite as useful and versatile as 30-Key instruments, this is a really good player and the same quality as a top-grade Lachenal rosewood 30-Key anglo- the only differences other than the number of buttons is one less fold in the bellows and £900 in price. It’s a really nice player, very responsive (for this price band), and with a lovely balanced tone. The 5-fold bellows obviously aren’t as flexible as a set of 6-fold, but they’re definitely not as restrictive as 5-fold bellows can sometimes be. The ends show signs of general wear and tear that you’d expect of a wooden-ended instrument of this age.
A very nice upgrade for somebody looking to move on from their first 20-Key instrument.
Model: 26-Key in C/G
