Lachenal New Model Tt Progress

Recommended Posts

Initial inspection of the Lachenal TT shows it to be in relatively good cosmetic condition. The keys and bushings needed cleaning and polishing only. The 7-fold bellows appear to be in like-new condition but stiff from lack of use. I replaced the valves for obvious reasons. The instrument had been stored on it's end. I've yet to replace the pads except for a couple that needed immediate attention. It had been re-tuned to A440. I made a new case for it as it arrived without one. It is the one on the right, next to my Lachenal New Model extended treble.

More progress to report regarding repairs to the Lachenal New Model TT I've been working on for several weeks. A round of tuning and sound check can be viewed here: There is also a link in the description to my tuning jig. Mike

Any updates on restoration? I listen to your YouTube video and it sounds great? Thanks. I am searching for a TT now and would definetely consider a New Model. Thanks for the info. John

Since my last post I've lowered the low D# to a B and have done some fine tuning overall. I also cut a new reed. That's the latest. Mike
