Wheatstone Boyd



          Wheatstone-Boyd treble no. 23124, built 1901.


  • Metal ends, newly nickle plated with ebonized frame (french polished). 

  • 48 metal keys.

  • 6 fold  Bellows.

          Because of the metal ends and a shallow reedpan, this instrument produces lots of harmonics,
          which gives it a brilliant sound quality. The equilibrium (balance between low and high notes,
          which is of utmost importance in polyphonic music) is superb.
          The instrument easily cuts trough the massive sound of a modern Yamaha concert grand, which
          seems nowadays the standard instruments in concert halls. 
          This instrument too has been restored by the Concertina Connection.
