Button/note response

Recommended Posts

One tone (A1) on my concertina sounds a bit hoarse. And does not respond directly to pressing the button. There seems to be a little bit of air escaping.

Does anyone have a tip as to what I can do about this?

Is it one of the notes you swapped? Or one nearby whose wax seal may have been disrupted by your work? Determine whether it’s on the bellows side (that you can see when you take the end off, sounds on the push) or the side facing the buttons (sounds on the pull). Then open up again, examine for obvious leaks or empirically reseat the offending reed and see if that helps.
