New Paolo Soprani Jubilee IV B/C bellows
Maybe someone can help me with a technical issue? I just received my new Paolo Soprani Jubilee IV shipped by Massimo Mazzantini at Castelfidardo Musica in Italy. This is my very first Paolo Soprani, and when playing it, I noticed the Middle G bassoon reed on the 4-voice setting sounds out of tune. All the other notes sound fine, both on 4-voice and 3-voice settings. Quite aggravating considering I play quite a few tunes in G using the 4-voice setting, so that bassoon G note is used all the time. Hopefully, it just needs a break-in period. I was going to take the 6 bellow pins out and open up the accordion and look at the reed banks, but I am uncertain if the bellows are also glued to the accordion frame on the new Paolo Soprani’s. I sure do not want to cause damage to the bellows if they are indeed also glued in.
