This is a Lachenal 46-Key Maccann Duet with steel reeds. It has been fitted with new pads and valves, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz). The serial number is 1497.
The Lachenal 46-Key is the usual starting point for somebody wanting to try out and learn the Maccann Duet system. It will never be the ideal instrument for most Maccann players (57 buttons is usually the minimum for the majority of serious musicians) but it is a fantastic way to get to grips with how the system works. This concertina is a good example of a decent Lachenal Maccann, as it is fairly responsive with a nice, balanced tone. The instrument is tidy all over, with the bellows papers being the only part of it showing any sign of age.
A great instrument for somebody looking to give this system a go.
Model: 46-Key Maccann
