DIY Box repairs

I started a series of small accordion repair instructions. Simple things that are easy and good to know for every accordion player.

For those of you who took the effort to visit this page: Thanks, here’s some exclusive blooper content from the video for you

The pair of pliers that I use – that are light and can be operated with one hand – are available from Amazon via this (affiliate) link:

The next box workshops

Hi all,

I am happy to announce that I will give two irish button accordion workshops in the south of germany.

The first one will be held at the  “Workshopwochende für Irische Musik” in Bonn on Nov. 15th/16th, while the second workshop is in the course of the  “Irish Weekend” at the VHS Ismaning  on Nov. 8th/9th. A preceding concert  of the teachers is given on Friday, Nov. 7th, 8.00 pm at the Bürgerhaus Unterschleißheim. I guess there will also be a similar concert in Bonn, but I do not know the date yet.

Looking forward to see you at the concerts/workshops :-)
