Breathy Notes on 30 button Anglo

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that I am getting a very breathy tone from the A/G and G#/Bb buttons. I haven't opened it up to take a look but I'm assuming it's not the reeds themselves bc it's happening on the push and the pull.


Any suggestions for what I should be looking for?

The symptoms warrant a check of the reed pan support block that the reed pan rests upon.  It is glued inside the bellows frame in that corner beneath the G/A and Bb/G# notes.  Give it a good wiggle.  Sometimes they look firmly attached but move once the concertina is put back together.
