air leaking between pad bard and bellows.

Recommended Posts



i have a Suttner A2-32.   i have recently noticed that air seems to be leaking from where the  pad board meets the bellows. Sorry if my nomenclature isn't correct.  I had to take the action box and pad board off about a year ago to look at a muffled reed.


What is the best way to stop this air leak?

Mike - woohoo!   that seemed to help a lot.    my suttner has square reed chambers and the chamois gasket is pretty thin, so i just used the edge of my fingernail as i was afraid of messing something up.   curiously, the chamois fabric around the hex outside edge is even thinner and more narrow for some reason.


But your suggestion worked so thank you so much!
