This is a Lachenal 30-Key Anglo in C/G with steel reeds. It has been fitted with a set of new 6-fold bellows, new pads, valves and straps, and has been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
The serial number of this instrument is 197008, which makes it a very late period Lachenal concertina. Whilst the cheaper concertinas made by Lachenal at this time were amongst the worst they ever produced, the better quality instruments were amongst their best. This concertina doesn’t really fit into either category. It’s a very decent 30-Key anglo for the price, and the steel reeds are by no means poor-period Lachenal reeds. This model just happens to be one of the cheaper metal-ended anglo models that Lachenal made, which is why the price reflects that. It plays well, has a balanced tone and would be the perfect upgrade for someone looking to move on from a 20/26-Key Anglo.
Model: 30-Key in C/G
