I have a very old 1 row hohner. Its really garbage but I also have a student piano accordion. Could it be possible to use the reeds out of the piano accordion to replace the 1 row?

The piano accordion has chromatic reeds. Some of the lowest notes could probably take a re-tuning to make them diatonic, although not preferable you could make it work for the low notes. They will not work well, if at all on the high notes. Once you get into the upper octaves of diatonic reeds the push and pull notes are spaced further apart so the reed on the outside is a different length because of the pitch difference. So you would have to replace the highest reeds with new ones. Are the old reeds broken or corroded bad? Usually you can put new valves and wax on old reeds after cleaning them and they still work.

Interesting. Didnt realize that the diatonic and the piano were so differant. Its sound so out of tune you cant recognize any of the notes. Reminds me of how a guitar would sound after decades in an old attic. Could be severely out of tune or corrosion. it was in an attic for decades.
