This is a Lachenal New Model 48-Key Treble with steel reeds (serial number 43908). It has been fitted with new pads, valves and straps, and been tuned to concert pitch (A=440hz).
This is a really lovely example of the Lachenal New Model. It feels incredibly punchy to play- a nice, quick response with a balanced tone and plenty of dynamic range. It’s also in pretty nice original condition aesthetically- the ends are very tidy, and the original bellows are in good condition. The bellows being 5-fold is a minor disadvantage- New Model bellows are notoriously a little more restrictive than other sets of 5-fold, so we’d dissuade people looking to play big chords from considering this concertina. But if you want a cracking tune player for a reasonable price that isn’t brash and bright, then this would be the perfect box for you.
