Old grey Paolo Soprani

Hi all, any way of telling if the reeds are original in old grey Paolo Soprani accordion.

Re: Old grey Paolo Soprani

My understanding is the reeds weren’t anything special - bog standard machine made reeds. I’d say if you get the bellows off and they don’t look like they’ve been messed with then they’re probably original. (I’ve also heard it said most of the sound in those boxes is the soundboard mass and hole size, in combination with the actual playability of the keyboard).
