I plan to offer my Lachenal double acting bass for sale on e-bay in a few days.

Unfortunately, this instrument has been mutilated by the attempt of a previous owner a long time ago to add some extra notes.  I did have hopes of re-working it to original format but have finally concluded that the damage is too great to repair. It is short of quite a few lower note reeds and valve pads but the bellows are good and the main structure elements are useable.  Accordingly, it is to be offered as spares rather than a restoration project and is mentioned on this forum to reach as wide an audience as possible for what is probably quite a rare instrument and consequent spares interest.

Thanks for any interest.

I can only see one pic. But honestly, as a long-term modeller I don’t think anything would be beyond repair and I would definitely give it a try. Yes, I am interested ...

Thanks for your interest gents, the e-bay entry is now in place.

I hope that somebody gets the pleasure from it that I had hoped to get myself.

Best wishes,  Peter

Got it now, but I cannot place a bid - it says ‘seller does not ship to Germany’.
