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).
It’s always hard to find other words to describe this model of Lachenal 30-Key Anglo as, excepting the very last ones made, they’re incredibly consistent concertinas- the anglo equivalent of a Ford Focus. They’re played by most serious anglo players at some point on their concertina journey, and is the standard instrument for somebody looking to have a proper go at playing Irish music. This concertina is no exception- it’s a good player with a balanced tone, and whilst the fretwork shows signs of wear from playing over the years, the 6-fold bellows have been freshened up with new papers.
If you’re looking to make the step up from a 20-Key anglo or a brass-reeded 26/30 Key then this would be the obvious choice before heading into the £2000+ price range. A good, reliable concertina.
