I have a number of small one row button accordions. Rather than restoring and tuning to my liking I have decided to see if there is any interest in any of them before I start. This will allow me to customize the restoration and tune specifically as the buyer desires. Typical refurbishment might include re-valving, re-waxing, re-padding pallets, limiting button travel, adding strap brackets, adding anti-vibration cross bars between reedblocks, new grill cloths, new bellows gaskets, etc. Not everyone wants or is willing to pay for all of these tasks so buyers can determine what is important to them and only pay for those features.
Current stock includes:
German made Hohners in A, C, Eb, F, G
Concertone in Eb
Italian made Busilacchio in C
Prices will range between $250 and $800. Final price will be established after discussing specific restoration and tuning specifications. Please use the contact page to let me know if one of these is an instrument you are interested in purchasing.
For the restorer or adventuresome enthusiast I am willing to sell some of these “as is” for a much reduced cost versus restored and tuned.
