Lachenal New Model 48-key Treble - Metal Ends


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A Lachenal New Model 48-key Treble English concertina, with steel reeds.  Reconditioned with new pads, new valves, and tuned to concert pitch (A=440Hz).
This is a good example of a metal-ended New Model treble, plays well with a bright tone.
The metal plating shows some sign of patina and finger wear acquired during the years, but this does not affect the playability of the instrument.
One great feature is the provenance - having belonged to Owen McGohan, born in 1877 - and presumably, he acquired it new as a young man - around 1895 or so.

This concertina would make an ideal upgrade from a tutor model - and will hold its own in a session.

Includes the original case.


Located in Alessandria province, Piemonte, Italy.
