Lachenal Concertinas

Founded in the 1850s by Swiss engineer Louis Lachenal, Lachenal & Co. was the most prolific of the London-based concertina makers. Lachenal spent years as a craftsman with the iconic Wheatstone & Co, honing his craft, before moving on to found his own company.

Lachenal is noted for his introduction of innovative mass-production techniques to concertina manufacturing. His new concertina design led his company to become one of the most iconic concertina producers of the era.

Dating Lachenal concertinas is not as easy as with other vintage instruments such as Wheatstones for exmaple. Researchers are attempting to compile databases however containing all know dating information for Lachenal concertinas.

Concertina Care Tips

Vintage concertinas, like any musical instrument, require care. The concertina storage tips below, courtesy of Chris Algar, will ensure your concertina stays in top condition for longer and will help maintain smooth action and playability.

Storage

  • When not playing your concertina, always store your concertina in its hard case with the lid fastened to prevent dust or grit getting in and affecting the intricate internal mechanism.

Temperature

  • Concertinas hate extremes of temperature and humidity, we recommend storing your concertina in its hard case, in a room with an ambient temperature of at least 18C but no more than 25C.

  • Extremes of temperature or extreme fluctuations of temperature, may cause key functioning and moveable parts of the concertina to warp, sometimes to an irreparable extent.

Humidity

  • Humidity must also be kept constant, anything under 40% humidity will cause the concertina to react and will likely affect the reed pan and cause other issues that may make the concertina harder to play or may prevent it from playing at all

  • In winter keep a tray of water near the radiator in the room where you store your concertina to prevent the air from drying out.

  • Those of you on the East Coast of the US, be particularly careful as your low humidity during winter may lead to internal damage to the concertina.

Bellows

  • When storing your concertina, make sure that you keep the bellows compressed. Firstly, ensure that you have the bellows compressed by placing a tight elastic band around the concertina, secondly, keep the concertina tightly packed in its hard case.

  • Keeping the bellows compressed in this way prevents them from expanding and losing elasticity and means you won’t lose action on the concertina.
