Jack Baritone 30 Key English Concertina.

The Jack Baritone Concertina has 30 keys, ranging from the second G below middle C to the first C below middle C.Fully chromatic.The concertina comes complete with a good quality gig bag to keep the instrument safe and dry and a superbly written tutor book,designed purely for this instrument.The English concertina is fully chromatic and each button plays the same note on both push and pull of the bellows. The scale comes by alternating notes from each end of the instrument, which makes it easy to play fast runs. This system tends to suit players who read music as the buttons line up exactly with written music with the stave lines on the left hand and spaces on the right.For each button, the same note plays on the push and pull of the bellows. It is fully chromatic. On a 48-key Treble instrument, the range is similar to a Violin from G to C three and a half octaves above. The Tenor extends the range down to C, but loses the upper range, the Tenor treble covers the whole range from C to C, and the Baritone has a range one octave below the Treble.

The scale is played by alternating between the ends, which makes it easy to play fast runs. Block chords are easy to build up, and the English Concertina is excellent for song accompaniment

    After a stroke I was no longer able to play an accordion and it was suggested to take up a concertina due to lightness and portability. I looked around and found Red Cow. I contacted them and was given all info about the different models. They were well informed and know their concertinas together with a back up and repair service if needed. With their help I decided on the Jack baritone English concertina. They sent it to me well packed and it arrived exactly when it was requested. It does have a good sound and feel. I now have to learn how to play it but I expect to be able play some basic Morris tunes in the next couple of months. Many thanks to Red Cow for all their help and advice and an excellent professional service not found at many music shops. I can recommend them

    I broke both of my wrists in a fall whilst walking in October. I’m now doing lots of physio to get my hands working properly, but finger wiggling gets tedious rather quickly… So why not learn the concertina to give some added benefit to finger (& wrist) exercising? The Jack is just the ticket. Good tone, not too heavy, and requires much of the movements I am supposed to be doing in my exercises. I’ve also got a target to aim for: To be able to accompany myself singing as Festus the fool in Twelfth Night in November…
