Are Single Full Reed Plates Repairable?

Recommended Posts

hey-

 

I have this concertina, 20 button.

 

I was wondering, if I can ship it in to a repair company. the us and if its possible to tune something like this, or even if the repair cost alot....(any rough guess?) with and without bushings. also what are these reed plates called?

 

ill send them a message after I got a more clear understanding on repair of these things, and if its even worth it.

Tuning looks straightforward, the job is possibly best suited to an accordion tuner, or a Bandoneon tuner if you can find one as they have this style of reed plate.

Re what they're called, I've heard them called long-plate or (less frequently) "ganged" reeds.
