Do not know if this has been posted before. I researched and couldn't find a post. My question is this will the reed blocks on a Compadre fit a Panther and will the panther blocks fit a Compadre?

Yes, I believe they are. The blocks are interchangeable between the corona, the compadre and the panther

Thanks for the reply Ruben. My Panther is in GCF, however the buttons clack alot and a couple of buttons tend to stick. My Compadre is in FA and so far plays flawless. I am thinking of switching the reed blocks.

is there a big overall difference between the panther and compadre that you can notice ?

I am  beginner. I have been playing for about 13 months. I have had the Panther for 13 months and the Compadre for about 2 months. I my opinion the Compadre is louder, buttons are smaller but easier to play and they do not clack as much, well put  together and definitely a good notch over the Panther. On a scale of 1-10  I would place the Panther at a 4 and the Compadre at a 6 when it comes to playability and quality.  Again I am being conservative here just my personal opinion as I have never played a higher quality accordion such as a top notch Hohner or Gabby. The adjustable bass strap is a plus on the Compadre although the strap does stretch out after break in and probably will need readjusting.

I tried putting my panther reeds in my corona classic and they were slightly wider and I could not get them in there. I'm sure with a little adjusting they would've fit I didn't feel comfortable forcing them in there.

I also did notice that the Panther reed blocks are slightly wider than the compadre [biggrin]ones.

There are some slight difference in width between the blocks. Whenever I do a reed block swap I install the middle block first and make sure it is centered, then shave off wood as necessary from the side of the blocks to make sure the holes are lined up. Also sometimes shimming may be necessary on the front of the blocks where it slides under the mounting block for a snug fit

My switch might not be permanent but for now it is working. I do not want to mess with any of the reed blocks because I will probably switch them back later like I said before. Thanks for all the replies guys.
