    Hi
    New La Clavietta owner here !!
    My vintage Clavietta arrived with several issues. The main body had the corners around the mouth piece broken, must have had a good fall. I decided to do a complete restoration and have removed all the keys. I have epoxied the body corners back on. I will be replacing all gaskets and hopefully fix the air leaks. I was wanting to tune the reeds as every note is 20 cents sharp, but it looks like I will need to remove all the reeds from the body, as they are mounted upside down. Maybe have to build a fixture to test the tuning of the reeds.

    Has anyone tried tuning this model ??
    Any suggestions appreciated
    Thanks

    Congrats on the new Clavietta. I recently scored one on ShopGoodwill that needs some work.

    Cool, what kind of work does it need?
    Hopefully we can get our Clavietta’s working like new

    Sorry for the late reply. My Clavietta leaks as much air as I put into it. Yours?

    Mine was leaking, I found a thread here about replacing the gasket with Duck Brand seal rope, this helped a little till I bought a new Suzuki M32c and found out how air tight a new model is. New Suzuki was +20 sharp across the board, is this common?
