This is a Lachenal 30-Key Anglo in C/G with steel reeds. It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps in the last couple of years, and has been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
This is an instrument that was sold in the last year, but came back in part-exchange for a top-end Wheatstone anglo. The huge benefit of this is that the concertina has really been played in during that time, and it has come back playing better than it left fresh after restoration. This is due to the fact that new valves often need time to loosen up before they’re at 100% playing power, and this has been proven with this concertina.
Late-period Lachenal anglos such as this are usually fairly poor instruments, but this seems to have been made with good reeds and that, combined with the playing-in that it has received make this a very good instrument for its model.
Model: 30-Key in C/G
