Baffles for Wheatstone Crane

Recommended Posts

A little shout out to Robert Gaskins and thanks for his great article on how to create and install baffles to sweeten the sound, reduce volume and balance the sides of the concertina.  

 

I’m happy to report that it worked very well on first try thanks to his very detailed instructions.  

I found that the accoustical fabric (like low pile ribbed carpet) was just touching the pads a bit when I depressed the button, so I used my electric beard shaver to trim down the fabric a bit in those areas and resolved the issue.)

It was so much fun to do the project and very good experience to be less intimidated to open up the concertina and work on it make repairs.  

 

I’ve also had a button or two break since I’ve owned the concertina and in a pinch had some 3-D printed, which are working nicely after I sanded them.
