Description

Lachenal 20 key anglo CG for repair.  Serial number 1961420 marked on both reed pans and both bellows frames, which is getting towards the end of Lachenal production. It has Erinoid buttons which Lachenal fitted during their final years in business. Full set of steel reeds with no signs of maltreatment.  Mahogany ends in good condition, pad boards sound.  Full set of end bolts.  Bellows might be repairable in the short term, but will probably need to be replaced if the concertina were to be played a lot. There are several split gusset which could be repaired with internal patches or by removing the damaged gussets and fitting new ones..  I’ve taken off the previously fitted crude external patches to make the damaged areas visible.   A straightforward renovation project.  In addition to bellows repair or replacement it will need new pads, valves, bushings, tuning, cleaning and a new set of straps.

Standard UK delivery £15.  Collection welcome by  appointment.
