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

Congrats on the new Clavietta. I recently scored one on ShopGoodwill that needs some work.August 14, 2019 at 3:58 am #10922
Cool, what kind of work does it need?
Hopefully we can get our Clavietta’s working like newAugust 14, 2019 at 7:33 pm #10923August 20, 2019 at 7:05 am #10924Jim RParticipant
Sorry for the late reply. My Clavietta leaks as much air as I put into it. Yours?August 23, 2019 at 10:29 pm #10932
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?
