  1. Hi, has anyone heard of a Wakker Anglo being made with Lachenal reeds? If so, any pro’s or cons? Thank you.
  2. Hi, We've got a a 48 button Lachenal brass-reeded English concertina with mahogany ends that we'd like to sell. These, of course, are not the world's greatest concertinas but they can get a person going. We had it fettled a bit a few years back by Colin Dipper as we wanted to lend it to a couple of people (like Anne's composition professor at university ). All notes play and are in tune (concert pitch) Four or five are a little bit buzzy but nothing excessive and should be readily sortable. As you'd expect with a brass reeded instrument it's not the lightest box to play by any me
  3. Lachenal Anglo 32 button Concertina C/G For sale, all original parts, needs some restoration work done, still working fine. sensible offers please
  4. Classic Lachenal c/g anglo concertina w/ rosewood ends, bone buttons, 28 keys (with all the accidentals and repeat notes for irish or morris music), no cracks, new airtight bellows, seals and pads, new straps, no buzzing or out-of-tune notes and lightweight. Purchased from the Reed Lounge in the UK. Steel reeds... mellow tone but not at all quiet. Includes padded bag. $1550 (no lowball offers please). This is an excellent, highly playable instrument for a beginning/intermediate musician. Will only ship within the US.
  5. Hi, This Christmas, a friend’s dad gave me an old Lachenal 30-button Anglo that had been in his family for generations. Unfortunately it is in a pretty sorry state, but as an aspiring musical instrument restorer, I have decided to have a crack at mending it myself (with the help of our friend's tools and DT experience). It is a beautiful instrument, with hardwood ends and bone buttons, steel reeds and a 5-fold bellows. As the photos show, it is a bit dirty (nothing some good cleaning can’t handle) and has had the bellows poorly repaired in the past with what looks like plasters…? Ins
  6. This concertina was purchased by Ken Shaw from Chris Timson, webmaster of concertina.info (?), in 2006. It had been renovated a couple of years prior by Chris Algar, who sold it to Chris Timson. Ken Shaw met Greg Jowaisas around 2012 at a festival in Texas and showed him the Lachenal. Greg told Ken it was the best model Lachenal made and agreed that he could make a better bellows. He replaced the bellows and straps with gorgeous dark green leather, did work on the pads, valves, and springs and tightened up the action and added bushings around the buttons. He also added the gold leaf decoration
  7. Lachenal number 576. Six sides, 6-fold bellows. Flat ends, ebonized. Restored by Chris Algar tuned to modern concert pitch. Excellent internal and external condition. £1,500 plus postage from Hong Kong.
  8. Hi. Sorry if this is a repeat but I couldn't find another similar. One of the brass end bolts holding the right hand side to the bellows has snapped on my anglo 30 key Lachenal. The end is a fraction below the lever of the belows so I cannot get at it with pliers. I have tried superglueing the top of the bolt on and unscrewing it but that does not do the trick. If I could somehow cut a small slot in it I could get a fine screwdriver in and extract it that way. Any ideas?
  9. I bought a 60 stud (plus bowing valve) Triumph Edeophone serial number 4362 from the Salvation Army shop in Melbourne, Australia in about 1965 but rarely played it as I have always preferred my English system instruments. The label on the right hand side is engraved "THE TRIUMPH Lachenal & co London WC". So now that I have decided to let it sing I am interested in discovering its history and age. That serial number is a bit of a mystery, did the Salvos have unique numbering for some of their instruments? I removed the left hand end yesterday for the first time and fixed the
  10. Good morning all from Dallas, Texas, I am a church musician and beginner English concertina player. Purchased a preowned Jackie last Christmas and have played it almost daily since then. I have been reading and researching on this site and learning from this community with much appreciation. I must confess that I'm beginning to think about purchasing that "next level" of English concertina. I've begun to focus on searching for a 48key treble Wheatstone or Lachenal english concertina in the range of $1,000-2000. (According to one site, that's 774-1548 GBP).
  11. Mahogany ended Lachenal, 30 Button, C/G, refurbished by Greg Jowaisas. Looks like serial number 195732, (the last digit is partially obscured). Includes case, which is old but probably not original since the case has a sticker, “C. Wheatstone & Co. ....” Price $1500 which is what I paid for it. You pay for shipping carrier of you choice.
  12. Dear all. My first post. I have just got hold of a Lachenal concertina. I play a Wheatstone English treble, and have a Jones anglo. But this Lachenal is different from those two types. Is it a duet? (never seen a duet in the wild). It has no air button, plays same note in and out, is same size as my English more or less, and has the looks, from a distance, of an anglo. I googled images of a duet, but they all seem to have more buttons than this one. I am very very grateful if some knowlegeable souls could tell me what it is, or in fact anything at all about it. The serial number is 1780, and
  13. It's there. In this "just received" cardboard package. Chris from Barleycorn has taken all precautions for the shipment, from "Fragile" tape outside to polystyrene chips inside. When opening, a small smell of antique things... or probably more likely shoe polish, perhaps because of new straps. The concertina is comfortably but tightly installed in its hexagonal wooden box. I dream of this since a year ! What a beautiful instrument. So tiny ! I must say I never held a concertina before, and am surprised by the size, the delicate fretwork, the small but protuding buttons. I carefully res
  14. Price is £2,000 plus shipping (about £100). Lachenal, new six-fold bellows, new pads/springs. Metal ends on ebonized wood frame. Good action. 30 button C/G plus bird-song and cock crow novelty buttons. Recently tuned to A=440. Made around 1930. Excellent visual condition and plays well. It is in Hong Kong at present. Steel reeds. The serial number is 114088. Here is a sound sample: https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing The original case is no longer suitable because of the change to six-fold bellows from five. The Lachenal pape
  15. Check this little 20 button beauty out. Not quite 4" flat to flat. She is right in between Eb/Bb and E/B, and beautifully in tune with herself, but not as airtight as I would like. Serial number 48556 by one source appears to have been made 1876 ish? Is this a rare specimen or pretty common? It has amazing sound for such a small thing...
  16. 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 po
  17. Hi All I've got a customer who purchased a 30 key Lachenal Anglo concertina but it came without its baffles. I know a lot of people (myself included) play without baffles or remove the baffles, but this gentleman would like the concertina 100% original (or as close as can be if you see what i mean) Bearing in mind the original baffles have probably long disappeared, where can i get, and what is the correct material to make a realistic/authentic set of baffles from, or does any of the kind members out there have a set of baffles they would sell to me to help out? Any thoughts or help with

  21. Hello concertina lovers, I am selling two of my beloved concertinas! An amazing Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet that I bought from Barleycorn Concertinas. It plays beautifully and It is extremely rare. So powerful for the size. And an as amazing maybe a little bit less rare 48 keys Lachenal New Model English concertina. I bought this one from David Robertson, and he did a stunning work restoring it. You can check the auctions: 12 keys Wheatstone Miniature Maccann Duet: http://www.ebay.com/itm/302178528085?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 48 key
  22. A couple of months back I built a new bellows for an old Lachenal 48-button English concertina, and I think it came out rather well. I used the methods outline on the Homewood site, and my thanks goes out to Bob Tedrow for his excellent instructions. The bellows that were on my squeezebox were not originals, and they were functional but very ugly. Finding the papers was difficult, but the ones I got from Concertina Connection worked out fine. I'll attach a couple of pictures for your inspection. Ben
  23. I have a concertina with a Lachenal sticker attached as well as a Wheatstone tag on the box. It came with my husband's grandfather from Scotland in 1917. It has 48 bone buttons. I have photos but could not upload them. Can someone advise me on the age of the concertina. The Wheatstone address places the age before 1915. There is also a serial #59055. Thanks for any info. Mary Haddon
  24. This is no longer available. Thanks Will
  25. For sale simply because it's not being played and needs a new home. Paragon model, rosewood ends, metal keys, steel reeds; in excellent condition and well tuned at concert pitch. The very clean interior would suggest that this instrument has not had a lot of use since it was made, probably around 1914, but Lachenals are not straightforward to date. Tuned and re-valved by Andrew Norman. Comes with original rosewood box, but don't keep it in this as it holds the instrument the wrong way up! Therefore, also comes with a modern hard case. A sweet instrument - looking for £1100. Photos are availabl
