Eddystone Posted September 10, 2020 Share Posted September 10, 2020 Sorry for delay, but have been rather busy lately. I stripped the end where the rattle was, and found this rogue reed just floating about. Mystery as all 20 buttons are working normally, and the spare reed shows no sign of having been fixed anywhere. The underside is flush, with no signs of any glue, so how it would have been fastened down I do not know. The reed is made of steel and its mount is brass. It measures 4cm long and is .9 cm at its widest point. There is a 21st button on one end, and when pressed just lets air into the bellows (or releases ) air from it. This button is at the opposite side to where I found the loose reed. Thanks Dowright for the date, it was either bought second hand or by my grandparents!
