We have been tuning free reed instruments for over 25 years!

Rob Beecroft is a well respected 2nd generation accordion, melodeon and concertina tuner. Rob perfected his craft by learning from renowned Italian tuners in Castlefidardo.

Using traditional techniques and state of the art electronic tuners,  we tune to factory standards.


Accordion Centre | Accordion Tuning

Reeds being tuned using electronic tuners and traditional methods

Our staff have been trained by Italian master craftsmen and are fully versed in all aspects of accordion, melodeon and concertina repair and tuning.

In our on-site, fully equipped factory workshop, we can undertake any repair, large or small. Every repair is carried out using premium materials, and both modern and traditional techniques are employed to ensure work is completed to the highest possible standards.


Accordion Repair

Re-building a stradella/freebass mechanism

Repairing and tuning free reed instruments is labour intensive and takes time to finish to a high standard. Full restoration of an accordion can involve over 60 hours work!

Estimates for repairs and tuning are free and an approximate quote can often be given over the phone or by email.

An accurate quote, however, can only be provided after we have inspected the instrument.
