Short vid of waxing reeds with a flat spoon.
I have one of those spoons

I would call it a spatula. The spoon is a different tool, as I understand it.

I have one of those spoons, but never knew quite how it was supposed to be used! Thanks for this!

The chords have been waxed in. (:)


Is it normal for beginners to have these thick lines of wax? I feel if I'd use less, it could happen that it's not airtight and therefore I use a little more instead.

That's a very slick and professional demonstration Roger, but it's just not like the 'real thing', clouds of acrid smoke, constant coughing, the eye watering and the odd flare up as the poker dwells too long in the firegrate! How do you find the tone compares without the wash of wax all over the reedplates suppressing the higher frequency overtones, it can't be as mellow, surely ?

More seriously, you may end up as chief evangelist for the church of the Latter Day Spooners  ;)

Thanks all

To be honest the box it came in looked that kind of age but the box inside looks like new  and so do the others i have seen.   I suppose it may just be a freak buy .  something which was bought but never played.  it is in lovely nick but as i put in the original post, it doesn't have that lush old sound.  But then it was cheap, it's in tune and doesn't sound all that bad  so i will stop complaining  :||:

Not a Club 1B Piccoletta then.  Best guess it would be late 1940s,  but just a best guess.

They are low grade something, that's for sure.
Still, I think it has promise and as it owes me nothing I'll play around with it a bit.
Drier tuning, and maybe a testing bed for odd accidentals. Possibly too much trouble to make it a 4th button start but you never know.
Mechanisms and bellows all work fine so that's a good start.
