This is a Lachenal 30-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).
The serial number of this instrument is 198577, which means it was made at a time when Lachenal anglos like this were being made with cheaper materials causing a distinct lack in quality. However, this concertina has none of the trademarks of a poor-quality Lachenal. It plays very well and has a lovely mellow tone. We can only assume that the reeds used in this concertina were made years beforehand, or Lachenal had somebody still making reeds for them in the ‘old’ way. Either way, it’s a fantastic lower-end 30-Key anglo, and you won’t find many better at this kind of price.
Model: 30-Key in C/G
