Accordion repair, maintenance and sales. Andover, Hampshire. Near to Berkshire, Wiltshire, Oxford, Bucks, Surrey, London, West Sussex and Dorset.
Welcome to my accordion tuning and repair service. I repair piano accordions and melodeons. I restore second hand accordions and melodeons to return them to a playable condition.
You can visit my workshop by appointment where you can get an estimate for accordion repairs. Please use the contact form on this site or call me on 07526 658430. My workshop is just north of Andover, in North West Hampshire, UK. It is centrally located for most of southern UK, including counties near Hampshire (Berkshire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Bucks, West Sussex and Dorset). I often get customers from Southampton, Portsmouth, Reading, Oxford, Swindon, Bournemouth and West London.
Estimating the cost of accordion and melodeon repairs
I normally give a low/high estimate, based on time and materials. For while-you-wait repairs please see my guide to costs. If you haven’t come to me in person, your instrument can be posted/couriered to me or I can collect/drop-off within an hour’s drive from Andover. I accept all major debit and credit cards.

I carry out accordion repairs on behalf of Hogan Music in Newbury, Hobgoblin music stores, and get referrals from The Accordion Shop, Scotland Accordions and Allodi in London. I am the accordion and concertina expert for the BBC program The Repair Shop. I also sell accordions I have restored. I attended an Engineering training school for a year (a long time ago), learned many other workshop practices from my father, who was a clock and watch repairer, and learned accordion repair and tuning after I restored a variety of instruments and built a button accordion with master accordion designer and builder Emmanuel Pariselle (see him here playing two concertinas at once). I have received training from Paul Flannery, the in-house accordion tech at The Music Room in Cleckheaton, and also had a lot of advice and help from expert repairer and tuner Theo Gibb.
