DavePraties Posted January 16, 2017 Share Posted January 16, 2017 Hello All, I have begun to tune both my new Lachenal duets, and discovered a marked difference in the quality of the sound. The older (C 1885) with riveted action, sounds more powerful and strident, wheras tho newer, (C 1903), with standard Lach hook action, sounds good but is more mellow. Both steel reeded. Did Lachenal produce different qualities of reed for different instruments? I assume that the one with riveted action was a superior model?? The reeds in both instruments were in a similar condition, having very little rust. Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
