Reply To: Reed tuning table


Hey Daren, the term of breaking-in is also known as playing-in there are several discussions on this topic on concertina and accordion forums you can check out where they discuss tuning and the reed sound. There are some that feel that this is not needed but I usually have had to retune after several weeks of playing to adjust by 2-4 cents when dry on new reeds, the greater on the Lower notes. The Diamanté reeds are installed with the tongue facing inward so once waxed in they need to be removed to be retuned. For the new Diamanté #004 the reeds are on a removable wood reed plate but still need to be removed for tuning since they are inward as well.
