Continue to Regulate Keyboard Let Off

Adjust regulation capstan screw to have each hammer reach same height relative to bottom of reed before the hammer falls.  This evens out feel of the keyboard and strength that the hammer strikes each reed, evening out tone & note strength.


Slightly raise or lower the metal sides of each reeds’ pickup bar to meet with the bottom of the reed.  Lowering pickup emphasizes fundamental while raising pickup emphasizes harmonics.  Also even out volume of notes
