Can Tuning the reeds up one note?


Recommended Posts

HOHNER English Concertina 48Key treble reveted action with accordion reeds.
Push and pull should be F6, but E6 comes out by pushing.

Can I tuning the reeds up one note?
 

For this, I made a tuning bellows, but I have absolutely no skill in tuning.

Usually the reason for a note sounding so low in pitch is that the reed tongue is cracked, and needs to be replaced.  It is sometimes possible to tune a reed up by a semitone (like E to F) but it does require some skill and a very good file.

@TheoThanks,I was wondering if it was shipped with the wrong tuning at the time of manufacture. Because I heard that this instrument was purchased 15 years ago and hadn't been used much.

I'll check the reed
