Cathasach Posted May 17 Share Posted May 17 For my first concertina I got a very inexpensive model off Amazon bc I couldn't afford a real one and I was hesitant to spend any significant amount sight unseen. It turns out I kinda love my crappy concertina more than my good one, for a few reasons. 1) it's bigger and I have big hands so it's easier to play 2) it's slower and I like singing slow haunting melodies So, I want to refurbish it and put some better reeds, including the missing b flat. This is more of a project for my own self satisfaction and self edification than anything else. My plan: I want to start by replacing the reed pan bc as you can see in the pic it's laid out rather weirdly. I'm hoping to find some files and alter them so I can cnc the new reed pan. I have access to basically anything I could need tools-wise: 4 axis CNC, full machine shop, full wood shop, 3d printer up to 3'x3', full jewelry shop, full leather shop, book binding equipment and up to a 4 foot by 6 foot plasma cutter CNC. My ultimate goal is to build a concertina from scratch but I figure the reed pan is a good place to start. Any advice? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
