How much will it cost, and how long will it take?
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.
Our experts will always provide a free estimate of the cost and length of time it will take to repair or tune your instrument, and can often give an indication over the phone. Of course, a more accurate quote will be agreed with you when they have inspected the instrument.
We endeavour to repair and tune your instruments as quickly as possible. Our workshop is a busy place; if we can help you immediately then we will, however some repairs and tunings can take a little while – we’ll always let you know how long we think it will take us.
