I'm selling my Lachenal Tenor-Treble 56 keys.
Fully restored by me a few years ago. I no longer play this instrument since I have an Aeola TT.
The restoration included:
- tuning to A440
- new pads, valves, resetting action, polishing buttons and other bright work
- French polished to a high gloss
Comes complete with a leather case (leather carry strap needs a little attention).
What's unusual about this 'tina is that it looks like a 48 key instrument with the spindle-cut fretwork, but it looks to me like it's of much better quality. It's abou8t the same size as the equivalent 48-key instrument. My guess it was made to a price-point by Lachenal for JJ Vickers as a student instrument.
This 'tina plays well, and has a fast action and bright sound. While it's not as loud as an Aeola, it should hold up in sessions, and would make a great singers instrument. I've played it in Nordic music jam sessions and it played well against massed fiddles.
Shipping extra at cost.
Edit - this concertina is in UK and will ship from UK.
