the closet concertinist Posted January 2, 2019 Share Posted January 2, 2019 Hey there everyone, I’ve been going back through a lot of the articles and learning a tonne but I figured I’d throw my question out there anyways and see if there are any fresh thoughts! I live in Alberta Canada and earlier this summer I received a 40 button Wheatstone that I have been in love with. BUT it came from a much more humid Australia, and especially now that It is mid winter here in the north and very dry with -30°C temps, it is starting to make a few sounds. The most common sounds are: 1. Gurgles or buzzes at certain pressures on certain reeds 2. Hiccups right as the reed is initiated and then the sound is clear 3. A few buttons that produce softer/quieter notes So I’ve heard there are methods for “resetting” my instrument according to seasonal changes.
