Boyd Lachenal treble

Recommended Posts

You won't often find the Boyd name on a concertina, but when you do, you can be pretty sure that it will be one of the best of its kind. They are rare and justifiably sought-after, and this is, by some distance, the best example that has ever passed through my hands. It's light and nimble, with plenty of bite to the tone. The cosmetic appearance was so good and original that I have done nothing but clean and polish the ends and the woodwork. Apart from that, I have replaced pads, valves, bushings and straps, and tuned it to modern concert pitch.

The original leather case is in a sorry state, though it might be restorable. However, the instrument is a perfect fit in a decent wooden case that I had lying around.

I'm asking £1850, and as always, you're more than welcome to come and have a squeeze, or call me on 01603 702644 if there's anything else I can tell you.
