    24 key C/G Anglo Lachenal/ Wallis date ?

    Hello all , you are correct we have a C# D# , on the right hand side + another C#/ b where the C/b would normally live. the left hand side is not yet identified, the reeds are not sounding and I can’t see a note “stamp” , investigation ongoing! thanks for your input
  6. hello folks, i have recently purchased a a 24 key c g Anglo , it has rosewood ends , it looks like this instrument was manufactured with 24 keys from the get go. i haven’t seen another like this . It does require a good service , buts seems quite sound . serial number inside of ends and bellows says 29512 , Also has the J. Wallis , London label on the other end . can any one help with a date / information ? thanks in advance

    Tedrow Anglo baritone

    Thanks for that Ted , I must say that’s a “ bittersweet “ way to get your Baritone. I hope you do indeed find it an investment in your future happiness! im thinking on how to play jigs and reels kind “emptied out” so’s to leave space for the Baritone. I’ve heard Jack Talty & Cormac Begley do some amazing tunes using a Baritone and standard Anglo. finding the information coming from the c net community really helpful. all the best

    Tedrow Anglo baritone

    Thanks for that Ken , I typically play my 7 mount c/g Anglo with 2 or three fiddles , English Concertina and mandolin/ banjo . To add interest, some thing in a lower register is what I’m after . I had thought of playing some tunes on the melodeon, sadly I’m to lazy to learn a new instrument so that’s why an Anglo Baritone has caught my eye . I was thinking when playing Baritone I could leave the fast stuff to the others , and as you pointed out a good opportunity to work on the “ bass clef” all the best Martin
  11. Hello folks , anyone have experience of the Tedrow Anglo Baritone? im nervous of an instrument with accordion reeds of that size , I’m wondering if it would respond well to Irish trad . thanks
  12. Hello Jon , can you tell me what kind of reeds this instrument has ? regards
