Cute Lachenal 20-Key Miniature For Sale

Recommended Posts

Several years ago I couldn't resist to buy this little beauty. When I was asked for a piccolo recently I ended up selling it reluctantly to a lady in Britain.

However she had expected it to finger like a piccolo ( one octave above treble ).

Now she is not happy that it fingers like the upper half of a treble ( starting on right hand C ).

It lives in a cute Mahogany-box with brass-handle:

Before the little one returns to Germany I would like to offer it here.

I have never seen anything like it and - in fact - I wouldn't be too sad to take it back...

 

For more details and pics see http://www.concertinas.de/concertinas

 

PS: Should anybody know of a real piccolo for sale, please let me know!

Someone asked about the size. I can not measure, as the instrument is in England currently.

But this may help: In between a miniature and a piccolo!

Give us a price guide please Robbie...... By PM if you'd prefer,

 

Best regards,

Geoff.

 

PS; thinking about it... as it is effectively half of a normal Treble .... then perhaps it should be half the price ? :)

Yes, it is basically the top half of a very loud treble;-)

For details and price follow the link above!

It cost me approx. 1650€ or 1450 Pound. And I don't like to loose out!

Not if prices follow the inverse square hexagon law. ;)

Looks like you could be right Jim.

Err. About that fingering chart.... I think of C being on the left side. Straighten out my thinking please...

This is the upper part of the keyboard ' starting on the first C on the right side' of a normal 48 treble. :)

Not strange to me. Matches a soprano recorder or a common tin whistle.
