david robertson Posted March 4, 2015 Share Posted March 4, 2015 I have just acquired a big (69k) Maccann Aeola, and looking at the action, I am slightly puzzled. Two pairs of levers on the right hand cross over, and I'm damned if I can see why. The adjacent reed chambers concerned are of a more or less similar size, so it looks like the reeds could easily be swapped over (given a slight re-positioning of the chamber reducers), thus making the crossovers unnecessary. Now I'm pretty sure Mr Wheatstone knew what he was doing, so what am I missing? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
