Baritone & Bass Anglos


Recommended Posts

I visited Andrew Norman last week looking at anglo concertinas.

I had the priviledge to try out his new baritone and bass concertinas briefly. Lovely looking and very responsive instruments. The baritone goes down to C2 and the bass to C1. Just thought I would mention them if anyone is looking for an anglo with a low range. Its not a sales pitch - no financial interest!! - just thought they were very good concertinas.  YouTube video of the baritone: https://youtu.be/Lp-TOdKJCwk    & the bass: https://youtu.be/uozSwaqUj2k

I have always taken every opportunity to play any Anglo that I encounter and have played several Normans.  Whilst I wouldn't choose one in preference to a Jeffries or a Dipper (for example) I have never found a Norman that I didn't like.  They feel right in the hands, and are cheerful boxes to play.
