Bandoneon estimate

Recommended Posts

Would need to know what system it is. AA is a good brand, but it needs to be in the Argentinian Rheinische Tonlage system, bisonoric and tuned to modern pitch (A=442) to be valuable.

Judging by the photo showing the reeds, and extrapolating that to all the reeds, it needs at the least, new valves and the reeds cleaned, and then probably some tuning. Bandoneon are relatively tricky to tune, because of the reed arrangement and also because it is tuned to octaves - so it can take time/costs money. If any reeds are broken they will need replacing. Also, you don’t say anything about how much compression it has on the bellows. It might need the leather pads replacing if they are of the same vintage as the valves. So if someone wants it as a working instrument they may wish to factor in the cost of some work. 

If you are in the UK and want to discuss further, please contact me through jollyrogeraccordions.co.uk.
