Accordion Tuning

Any button accordion & melodeon tuning is possible: from modern to old school and from quarter comma meantone to equal temperaments or Dedic/Viennese. We have been tuning accordions for years and have a somewhat nerdy interest in different tremolo settings used for accordions in the present and past. We are happy to discuss your tuning needs with you.

Here are some prices for different tunings:

  • 2-row / 2-voice Button Accordion – just tuning (keeping tremolo as-is): 160 EUR + 21 % VAT
  • 2-row / 2-voice Button Accordion – new tremolo (more or less):
    190 EUR + 21 % VAT
  • For more specialized tunings the price can be lower (just a couple of reeds need re-tuning) or higher (e.g. if the accordion has more voices)

Listen to sounds samples of different tunings we have done in the past:

Dry tuned ( 6ct on A ) – Hohner in B/C

Played in an Amsterdam session by Dominic Crosby (Guitar) and me (Ole Carstensen, restored Hohner in B/C with new reeds and flat/modern tuning)

Wet tuned ( 12ct on A ) – Weltmeister in C/F
