Tiny Lachenal

Recommended Posts

I have just found a lovely small Lachenal piccolo concertina,with rosewood ends

26keys, and 6 fold green bellows. It seems to be constructed to a higher than normal standard,and comes with a lovely rosewood/dark mahogany case.Andrew Norman had a look at it and tells me it is in ab/eb or thereabouts,and would,when tuned,make a very nice punchy box,which,using irish fingering,would play in Bb. .This would be a very interesting combination with flat pipes.It would also make a nice g/d box.It will cost me about £200/220 to have restored to peak condition.I also have a 30 key c/g Salvation Army Lachenal being tuned at present,these are always cracking boxes,although the fretwork is quite plain on them,so he must have had a soft spot for the SallyAnne.Both boxes will be for sale ,at the going rate,in the near future,and any enquiries are most welcome.

Just a thought, but wouldn't the Buy/Sell forum be more appropriate for this posting? The Ab/Eb certainly sounds interesting.
