20 button Anglo C/G 60 reed


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the reed configuration for the left hand bass side. See photos.

This is turning out to be one of those projects that tries to fail at every turn. Also does anyone have plans to rebuild the bellows. Tried repairing its not happening.

Assuming it's a standard CG 'tina…

1) get the standard layout for a CG anglo tina (somewhere on here or search Google.

2) work out where those reed blocks go

3) map buttons to the holes and therefore the block/reed chamber position

4) result should be what you are looking for.

5) if you have the reeds, ping them to work out the push/pull pitches

6) this should then enable you to match the reeds to the blocks.

I have all of the reeds, tested notes on homemade blower and tuner. A standard C/G I can work out it is the extra 20 reeds are they all the same configuration for each channel or are they set up to form a chord?

The extra 20 reeds are very likely the exact same notes, and possibly tuned a few cents off to get a tremolo effect.

Or possibly tuned an octave below the standard notes?

I also own an unrestored 20 button German concertina with 60 reeds. Two reeds per button are in same octave and the rest one is in an octave below.
