Dating english concertinas

The type of reeds and layout of the reedpan also affects sound quality considerably (see the note below by Rich Morse of The Button Box for more details).

Today (March 1999), you'll find good 30-button (or often 31 or 32-button) C/G Lachenal anglos going for between 00 and 00 (US).

If you only want to dabble but still want a decent instrument, a 20-key vintage Lachenal or Jones (rarer, but roughly equivalent to a Lachenal) should run you between 0 and 0.

I bought my first anglo concertina -- a 32-button Lachenal rosewood-end C/G model -- in May 1996 from The Button Box in Amherst Massachusetts, USA.They had a metal-ended model available for a little more, but since I was already a bit over my budget, I got the wooden-end model.Some people say the wooden-ended models have a mellower sound and so are better for accompaniment if you plan on singing at the same time, but I think this is a very general rule, and probably varies a lot from instrument to instrument.Both wooden ends marked and with some scratches, rubbing and losses to the varnish. 88692, the fifty six buttons on pierced metal ends and ebonised body with five-fold bellows, leather cased With recent full restoration. More details Lachenal concertina with 48 bone keys, pierced hexagonal face plates serial number 42187, together with mahogany case, the concertina measures 16cm wide Condition report: minor scuffs and scratches from use. More details Lachenal & Co three row Anglo concertina in need of restoration, no.

Anglo Lachenals are, as far as I know, all considered "student" grade.

His article is particularly helpful if you have a non-Wheatstone concertina, and is probably rather more accurate on Lachenals than the information I present below. A major project has been started to try and create some sort of master list of Lachenal dates, by Chris Algar, Bob Gaskins, Randy Merris and Wes Williams.

These instruments were all made in the UK, so "vintage English" usually refers to a Lachenal, Wheatstone, Jeffries or Crabb, and implies superior compared to the. The 1850 commencing date seems reasonable, based on the reminiscences of George Jones, which have been published in Free Reed and Concertina and.
