Concertinas in Stock

We have a large selection of concertinas in stock, certainly the largest selection in the world.

Please note that the examples shown in illustrations are not examples from present stock although we may have similar ones available.

All the concertinas are fully restored and in concert pitch (unless otherwise requested). All the instruments (of whatever quality) are decent examples of their type - we never waste time repairing concertinas that are not worth the effort and we turn down as many instruments as we buy to keep our standards high. We take great pride in the condition of our instruments. As well as in-house repairs we have instruments made and repaired by the best repairers and manufacturers of concertinas - Wheatstone, Connor, Dipper, the Concertina Connection, Suttner, Mike Acott, Nigel Sture, David Robertson and David Leese, a local concertina expert and restorer who works closely with Barleycorn.

There are no strict rules as to the cost of a concertina. Factors such as condition, rarity and finish all come into the equation when it comes to concertina prices.

There are endless varieties of concertinas and any prices on these pages are only guidelines as of July 2009. So don't be disappointed to find that you won't be able to acquire a Hayden duet, or buy a Jeffries for £200!
