William Posted February 22, 2004 Share Posted February 22, 2004 I recently purchased a Norman Conertina--I really like it--but I I've started having a problem. On row II, the G button (#10) going "in" responds well if played slowly --but if I play it quickly with some force, it chokes up----mostly no sound at all, other times the sound becomes barely audible as the concertina is near fully compressed. The leather valves at the G/A button look OK. The pad covering the air hole is fine, that is it lifts as high as the other pads and there doesn't appear to be any leakage. I've taken a dollar bill and gone through the G/A reeds--they seem clean. (They're brand new) I even got a can of compressed air and blew out the reeds. Still, after taking it apart a half dozen or more times trying to fix the darn thing, I can't. There's no air leakage, no wheezing or other extraneous sounds. All other buttons, in either direction are just fine. I'm trying to save myself the trouble of shipping it back to the store of purchase for repairs or a replacement. Any ideas? I sure would appreciate any input. Thanks, Bill Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
