I can provide a free estimate of the cost and length of time it will take to repair your instrument, both via email or over the phone. I can only provide the final quote after the inspection of the instrument has been made.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have repair requests.

Replacing reeds

Here is a before and after video of a completed accordion restoration that involved converting the key of a button accordion.

I have a stock of new, complete reed sets. The cost of a conversion varies but can be as cheap as 300 EUR depending on the number of voices and the quality of the new reeds. Any tuning is possible.

Replacing old felt pads

Some buttons make a clickedy-clack sound when you press them and this has an impact on the sound of the instrument. Replacing the old felt pads will make the buttons on your accordion play nice and quiet. This is definitely an underestimated repair service which results in much better sound. Yet it is only a minor repair that can be completed over night. Have your felt pads changed and hear the difference!

Replacing the felt pads requires a re-adjustment of the mechanics otherwise the buttons are the wrong height or the instrument will leak air.

New felt pads can be fitted from on 75 EUR ( depending on the amount of keys ).

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding button accordion repair services, no job is too small or too big. I don’t mind challenges and will take on urgent requests immediately.
