  1. The Lachenal is sold. Thanks for your enquiries. Michael
  2. I have listed a 1917 Lachenal English 48-key concertina for sale in the buy and sell column. Please have a look at my ad if you're interested.
  3. I thought I ought to let prospective buyers know that I've taken my Lachenal 26 key off the market. One interested party mentioned to me that I might be happier keeping this lovely concertina (it's an Anglo, and I've been working hard learning English) and eventually learn both systems. I've thought about it, and decided he's absolutely right. I've been playing the Anglo lately again, and have fallen in love with it all over again! So, luckily, I get to keep it. Thanks to those of you who enquired about the concertina; there was lots of interest in it.
  4. I have just reduced the price of my Lachenal 26-key from $1100 to $950. Please see details on the 'Buy and Sell' page.

    For Sale

    A wonderful instrument, 'swing' tuned, which is at the dry end of the vibrato spectrum, two reeds per note. I have been trying to learn English concertina, and on an impulse bought this instrument a few months ago, dreaming that I could learn them both at the same time. I've realized that the English is where my heart is, and the melodeon, though it sounds great and plays easily, is complicating my life. Standard 8-bass buttons. There is one stop, which removes the thirds from the bass chords, giving a sort of suspended feel to the bass which goes well with Irish music. This melodeon is in 'like-new' condition, only three or four years old, and taken very good care of. The strap at the bass end of the instrument is fully adjustable with a thumb-wheel adjuster, which makes it easy to create an exact fit. The bellows are perfect, though if anything still a bit stiff from newness. Two shoulder straps, adjustable, come with the instrument, as does a hardshell case made specifically for the melodeon. I have photos if you're interested. Email me at: macrane@prodigy.net New this melodeon is $1400. I'm asking $750.00 Michael
  7. Jay, I'm very interested in this Wheatstone English. Please let me know if it's still for sale, and send more pictures if possible. How many folds in the bellows? I can't tell from the photo in your ad. Thanks, Michael Crane macrane@prodigy.net
