Lachenal 48 key Edeophone Baritone no. 58471, built around 1925.
- amboyna ends (French polished)
- 48 24 carat gold keys

The baritone is the perfect solo concertina. It is of course also used in
ensembles, but the compass
and usually beautiful balance of these instruments
makes them the ideal solo instrument.
Unfortunately there is, in comparison to the treble, not much repertoire
written for this instrument.
Except for several pieces by Giulio Regondi, such as Remembrance, variations on
'Thou art gone
from my Gaze' etc., the choice of original Victorian repertoire
is fairly limited.
This instrument has been restored by the Concertina Connection.
