An original Wessex design, our BR144 Bb Compensating Baritone is ideally suited to modern music; the perfect accompaniment to brass or wind bands, this fully compensating 4-valve baritone is designed with a more open wrap of the 4th valve than any other equivalent baritone.

As well as aiding play in the lower register, this 4th valve also provides alternative fingering in the higher register ensuring it always plays in tune.

This is a great instrument for Euphonium players; providing an alternative tone, with familiar fingerings.
