Notes

  • -  See DCM 183. Designed for a one-handed player, missing the hand and/or arm. The complicated key work assigns 5 key levers to the thumb, and 13 keys to the four fingers. A one- or two-contact point stable stand was probably necessary. This instrument, and DCM 479, appear to date from around WWI, possibly pertaining to anyone returning from military campaigns and unfortunately thus requiring such a design.
