Wanted - 48 Button English To Learn On - West Coast Canada Or PNW, Seattle area. Edit: I am now actively searching for a Lachenal Edeophone 48 key with the large reed pan hole from the late 1920s. I am really enjoying the English concertina but my bone button instrument is in terrible condition and not worth getting professionally restored. I have been told that the Edeophone has the best balance of all the vintage concertinas for the type of music I want to play. It is very important to me that the steel reeds have never been tuned, that it is in old high pitch. The rest of the instrument can be rough as long as it is able to be restored. Please let me know if anyone has something like this or knows of one for sale. I prefer to buy locally in Canada but would certainly be open to getting the right instrument shipped from the UK or the USA. Thanks, John Message me through this forum please.
I am selling my father's Lachenal Edeophone 48 button treble concertina, which he used in the Salvation Army. It is a twelve sided instrument with wooden fretwork ends and 6 fold bellows, complete with original case. This is an opportunity to buy a top of range English concertina. It has a serial number 58850, which means it was made in about 1922. It is being sold as is, and has three buttons without sound, a re-attached right finger slide and a broken lock on the case. I am located in Australia and am looking for a fair offer. If you are local you could come and try it out, but I can't play it to do a demo! Please contact me for any further information. Sallyann
My dad has asked me to sell his 48 key Lachenal English concertina for him so here it is. Not really sure how much it's worth if I'm honest so perhaps someone can give me a bit of guidance? All the notes play cleanly and the bellows seem air tight enough. One or two valves on lower notes have a very slight flap to them. I will post a video of me playing it very badly on YouTube in the next few days (I play chromatic button boxes so don't expect too much!). The box I believe is original but has been relined - the concertina slides slowly into the box with a gentle "phfffffft" of air so it's a really really good fit. I think that's all - oh it's number 60190 and it's currently located in Bristol, UK Probably best to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
