caj Posted February 5, 2004 Share Posted February 5, 2004 My last question turned into a discussion about chamber size, but what I really want to know is this: what's the best route for getting this practice box built in the first place? The problem, again, is that most buttons on my new layout have a push- and pull- note that are 5 or 7 half steps apart. Forget about chamber size---suppose this isn't a problem. But, how about the basic problem of aquiring accordion reeds with that kind of interval? Is that possible, or really problematic? So I guess that's my real question: is it going to be impossible or prohibitively expensive to get accordion reeds with push- and pull- notes so far apart? If it can't be done with accordion reeds, I could maybe do something with concertina reeds (or pay someone to do it---I've tuned reeds before, but I'd rather pay a pro than accidentally ruin something or file off one of my hands.) Of course, I could put myself on a waiting list for four years, but right now I'm trying to get a just practice box made. So I can practice the new layout, some time sooner than 4 years from now. Just a pair of custom reedpans would be sufficient, if it fit my existing practice box. Regards Caj Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
