help !” flabby short flutter? valves ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys i,m getting a ” flabby short flutter? Just before the low G on the push ? then it sounds clear

 

Question:should the valves be flat to the pan at rest as I’m thinking the noise is the valve slapping back as it’s not perfectly flat at rest ?

 

Question: If it takes three concertina players 1 hour to fill a bath using 2litre buckets of water and six accordionists 2 hours to fill a bath using 500ml jugs of water

Why doesn’t someone just turn on the tap!

LOL

Valves! Yes flatten them by stroking or pulling them straight or better replace the offending ones. The big ones are often more prone to farts and warbles.

If the noise is between the two notes on one key when played in turn by reversing the bellows without lifting the finger off the key, then the offending valve is the one opposite the first note and beside the second note. If it happens during the note it is the valve beside the note.
