 just a thought - would taping  half the diameter of the air holes  on the reedblocks reduce the volume provided  the pressure on the bellows  was not increased . i'e would it have half the effect of completely taping ????

Not recommended at all - it usually affects the acoustic properties of the reed chambers and throws the reeds badly out of tune.
