Why are the buttons on my accordion making so much noise…?

If your accordion makes a lot of clickedy-clack sounds when you play it, you might want to consider having the felt pads exchanged.

Often the pads on mid-range accordions are only covered by a thin leather strap. This is not enough to dampen the sounds of the closing pads.

Exchanging all the felt pads will make your accordion play quiet. Since the height of the pads is different this requires a re-adjustment of the button mechanics to correct the button height and make sure everything is airtight.

A Hohner Erika fitted with new felt pads will play as quiet as any modern box!

I can change the felt on any accordion, also on yours.

Price: 75 EUR (work & material for a 2-row box, request price for more rows…)
