Lachenal 40 key CG anglo metal ends

£2,200.00

Nice original Lachenal CG 40 key anglo concertina.  It has nickel silver ends and buttons, steel reeds and plays with good reed response and the bright sound you expect from a metal ended Lachenal.  I have just completed a renovation with new pads and valves, tuning to concert pitch, new internal bellows hinges, and some external bellows patches (see photo).

Nice original Lachenal CG 40 key anglo concertina.  It has nickel silver ends and buttons, steel reeds, and plays with good reed response and the bright sound you expect from a metal ended Lachenal.  I have just completed a renovation with new pads and valves, tuning to concert pitch, new internal bellows hinges, and some external bellows patches (see photo).  It measures 6 1/4″ across the flats. Serial number 129970 – built around 1890. The six fold bellows are original and are in good condition with some patches I have just added.  This is a classic example of a 40 key Lachenal in very good playing condition and looking very smart!
