    Extra long shoulder straps

    If you like to play your accordion with just one shoulder strap, then you might have noticed that a lot of shoulder straps out there are actually too short. Especially for this style of playing, we have now stocked extra long shoulder straps. This basic model is made in Italy and with 126 cm total length it’s long enough to comfortably rest the accordion on your knee. Check out our shop if you are interested in ordering an extra long shoulder strap.

    Hohner Marca Registrada 3-voice accordion in D for sale

    We are happy to announce that we just finalized another custom restoration project: A super compact Hohner Marca Registrada 3-voice in the key of D. This one is motivated by all the positive feedback we received for the compact Hohner 3-voice boxes we have worked on in the past. We did not only convert the Marca Registrada from the key C to the key D, but we also added another tremolo row turning it into a full sounding 3-voice box (M+MM-). The inside was completely rebuilt to accommodate the additional reeds. We chose to tune the brand new Super Dural reeds to a nice Paolo-style medium wet tremolo with +-12ct…

    Hohner Pokerwork Bb/Eb For Sale

    For sale is a very special, very sweet sounding Hohner Pokerwork in the key of Bb/Eb. The instrument was restored and tuned following a baroque tuning system from Andreas Werckmeister first published in his writings from 1691. Readers of our website know about our praise of Ollie King’s fantastic solo record and obviously we had to make a Bb/Eb box after hearing it sound so mellow and pure on that recording. To generate an even more harmonic and sweet sound we choose Werckmeister’s non-equally tempered tuning system in combination with a flat and modern tremolo. The Hohner Pokerwork itself, is an early one with a black wooden keyboard. Some normal,…

    For Sale: Weltmeister C/F (516)

    We just finished servicing a lovely wooden Weltmeister 516 melodeon in C/F, made in Germany. The melodeon was bought in 2007 and has hardly ever been played. Apart from some very minor scratches below the keyboard, the instrument is in excellent condition. It is well in tune with a medium wet tremolo that sounds full and warm. However, in case you prefer a dry tremolo, we will re-tune the melodeon for a small additional fee. The fifth button of the inside row has been switched. In Dutch this is called “gedraaide 5de toets” and a common (and handy!) Dutch modification. If needed, this can be reversed without any additional cost.…

    Custom restoration of a 1950ies Hohner Erica

    I just finished the restoration of an old Hohner Erica with a lovely wooden keyboard. Judged by the characteristic recessed grille, black bellows and black wooden keyboard, this is one of the first Erica accordions made by Hohner in the mid-fifties. One of the first in this incredibly successful button accordion series. Certainly this is one of the oldest Erica boxes I have seen so far. Above all, it sounds nice too! Here is a sound sample of the converted accordion. Drop us a note if you would like to have a custom made accordion too.
