  • What Reed Wax to Get?

    Hello! I'm looking on adding some more wax to the reeds on my accordion, because it appears that over the last 60 years there has been a bit of wax lost. A few months ago I ended up re-sealing the wax on the reeds with a soldering iron, and that seemed to help quite a bit of leakage, but it started again and I believe that there's just not enough old wax left over. So, I was wondering, where is a good place to get reed wax? And are there different kinds or are they fairly universal? (As you can tell I am quite ignorant).
    Also, any tips on adding new wax to old wax?
    Thank you!
    P.S. I'm not looking for super fancy wax, but I don't want to end up getting something that is so bad that it doesn't do the job.
