  1. I want to thank everyone who has replied to my original query. I guess I really underestimated how helpful this forum could be. Maybe the most helpful piece of advice is that there is a concertina repair person in my are. All my googling didn't help me. I guess I don't know how to ask the right questions.
  2. So I had all the buttons on my concertina replaced - Wheatstone Anglo. I also replaced a couple of springs. Concertina is back together but I get constant sound from the right hand side when I push and pull. Whether I have the air button opened or closed does not matter. I can still ( barely ) hear the notes I am playing but there is extra sound on the right hand side. The sound comes from the reeds. It is very annoying to say the least. Okay, it's more than annoying. It's just not worth playing the concertina. The repairs mentioned above may make it sound like I know what I am doing but I don't have a clue. The buttons were replaced by someone who just happens to be good at doing fussy stuff like that and replacing a spring doesn't take much brains. I am the kind of guy who just wants to drive the car but doesn't know how things work under the hood. And there is no concertina repair person in my area. So if this is a problem for which there is an easy solve I would be very happy if someone would comment. I have followed the thread on leakage thinking that might be my problem but I am not sure that that applies here. But then again, I didn't understand anything in that thread. Any helpful tips? Les
