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.In a competitive concertina-manufacturing and selling environment, the Lachenal company produced a range of very fine instruments, including many "student" models.Anglo Lachenals are, as far as I know, all considered "student" grade.

Initially the term Anglo-German only applied to concertinas of this type built in England, but as German manufacturers adopted some of these techniques, the term came to apply to all concertinas that used Uhlig's 20-button system.
Use of the "German" part of the title Anglo-German ceased in the UK during World War I. For example, if the row closest to the player's wrist is in the key of G, the next outer row is in the key of C below.
