Tom Rhoads Posted May 6, 2010 Share Posted May 6, 2010 eBay listing (US) The seller writes: This is a 30 key Lachenal concertina that was bought from a man in Ireland. I had it retuned to play at a concert 440 A, instead of the one half step higher that it was originally made at. This makes it so you can play along with modern instruments. It is a C, G concertina with rosewood ends and new wrist straps. All the notes play on both in and out. There are some new pads and some new leather valves. The bellows is old, but does not leak. Looks like a fairly typical instrument. There are 12 pictures, including a serial number (inside the reedpan) of 149116 which the seller suggests is a 1920s number. I have not cross checked that myself, I am not wise in the ways of serial numbers. This instrument might be a good one for me and I'd be interested to hear comments from the gallery.
