Addding folds to a Lachenal Bellows

Recommended Posts

I have a little 35 button Crane and Sons (Lachenal) Crane that I got from Dr Bones. It has a nice, Lachenal voice but runs out of breath very quickly when grabbing handfulls of buttons on both sides. It could benefit with a couple of extra folds. I know that Greg has a fairly tight schedule right now. Does anyone have any suggesstions for others who may do bellows work?

 

Thaks for any help. It's a nice little instrument and worth keeping around.

You might try Bob Tedrow.

What about getting a completely new bellows from David Leese and putting it on yourself? Easier than trying to match the quality of the now-aged original materials for consistent performance, I would think.
