This is a Lachenal 30-Key Anglo in G/D with steel reeds. It has been fitted with new pads and valves, had a bellows rebind, and been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz). It is a Lachenal/Wheatstone layout.
This is a really cracking instrument for the price, and is in a price range you can’t get that many G/D anglos in. It’s very responsive with a lovely balanced tone- a softer tone naturally comes from a concertina tuned to G/D, but a brightness inherently exists with steel reeds in Lachenal’s metal-ended instruments which produces a lovely combination. The bellows have had a professional rebind, and the metal ends are in decent condition with some signs of expected wear and tear- the same goes for the bone buttons, which have signs of discolouration.
A really great G/D anglo for the price.
Model: 30-Key in G/D
