Rod Pearce Posted September 15, 2019 Share Posted September 15, 2019 I am on the lookout for a 30 key anglo that I can restore, with the intention of keeping it as a progression from my existing 20 key (Lachenal, badged as Campbell's Glasgow). I do not want to pay more than £400 to £500 for the instrument before renovation as I am still in the early stages of learning, but would naturally like to get as good a quality as I can. AS EBAY is the likely source for me, seeing / playing the instrument before buying is probably not an option. Are there any rules of thumb that would indicate overall quality. All I have to go on at the moment is price, look (eg fretwork) and makers name. For example, - is the complexity of fretwork pattern and indicator of quality? - are the reeds better in more expensive instruments? - ditto action? I would be grateful for any thoughts.
