LateToTheGame Posted May 6, 2018 Share Posted May 6, 2018 I have a connor with a mix of old reeds. One just bugs me. It has been gone over by Greg J. and a master craftsman in accordions here in Chicago. That reed is as good as it will be. Someone had me put a hand over the place on the grill where the air vents, and it sounded much better. Which led me to the ever so inelegant placing of paper surgical tape, like you'd use for bandages on that spot. Which dampened it enough to make it blend better. The tape has a very light adhesive so it isn't gooey, but I assume it would attract dust on the underside if it stayed on too long. So I am curious about an alternative. I've seen old lachenal's and accordions with something like grill cloth on the underside of the ends. Anyone have any experience with this? What glue would be used on a metal ended concertina? etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
