This is a fantastic opportunity to buy a fairly unique 30-Key Anglo concertina with steel reeds for an extremely reasonable price. This Lachenal is in A/E, which is a key you won’t find a huge amount of concertinas in (unless they’ve been tuned down from Bb/F for a specific owner). It has new pads, valves and straps, and has been tuned to concert pitch.
Having a serial number in the 190,000s makes this one of Lachenal’s later instruments, and the quality of steel reeds used in production at that point weren’t the same quality as their predecessors, meaning that this concertina will never be the most responsive player or the loudest. It is, however, ideal for song accompaniment, especially for musicians backing a female vocal (generally speaking, of course).
At this price, this would be the ideal instrument for somebody looking to extend their collection with something versatile that can open up different avenues for song accompaniment and session playing.
Model: 30-Key in A/E
