Welcome to the a A World of Accordions Instrument Store
All our instruments have been inspected for proper function at conventional standards by members of Accordion-concertina Repair and Technicians’ School. We strive to offer instruments that present as serviceable, were produced by reputable companies of manufacture, that have no serious sound or usage problems, that have stable machinery, and that respond appropriate to their quality levels.
All accordion-family-instruments require annual internal cleaning and service by technician specialists. They should be handled with care, housed away from sun, heat radiators and air-conditioner vents, and protected from dust and rough treatment. When played by people who understand proper instrument treatment, they should provide musical pleasure for many years to come. We include helpful and instructive fliers with each sale.
We offer our customers regular maintenance at minimal fees. Trade-backs for upgraded models are always welcome.
The proceeds from all instrument sales go to support our physical museum in Superior, Wisconsin. We preserve and promote the cultural heritages of the museum’s 1,300 accordion-family- instruments, show their relevance to modern times, and we serve players and organizations of national and international musical importance. Our museum presents categorized displays identifying chronological evolutions in diatonic (bisonar) and chromatic (unisonar) instruments from their 1800 beginnings to state-of- the-art finest examples, in racks showing countries of origin, brand-name manufacturers, our Traveling Museum favorites, and other specialized topics.
